May 27 - Twitter API Explorer

A Twitter API Explorer web site/application I built for interacting with the Twitter API calls.

The official Twitter API documentation is not bad, but being in a wiki it's usability isn't great. I found myself frequently clicking back and forth to find different API methods. So, I spent a couple of nights creating a tool to learn and explore the Twitter API interactively. Screenshot

In addition to the (hopefully) better usability, you can enter parameters and call the methods to see the response.

The site itself was built on Django and uses Twitter OAuth for authentication and for making authenticated API calls.
