Extract into your addons folder, then copy the addon’s lua/includes/modules folder into the main gmod lua/includes/modules folder.
This addon is powered by LuaSocket, and LuaSocket is included in the download.
In the main lua file, I’ve included a synopsis of all the functions to acess the twitter API I’ve made, I didn’t use all of them, so some people may find some use in them.
Also, Twitter limits users to 150 requests per hour, so the addon only updates once every half-minute. So if a button says “updating” for a long time, you’re going to have to live with it for a bit.
Any bugs, comments, or suggestions? Please make a post about them, and I’ll be sure to try and fix/answer them.
Updated Now Updates every 30 seconds, to accommodate the increased rate limit.
