Free Source Code – Twitter Database Server: db_lib.php

All of the code in the 140dev Twitter framework uses this script to read from and write to the MySQL database. It writes any errors to error_log.txt in the db directory. You should check this log file regularly, since Twitter frequently changes its data structures, causing failures on database inserts. The log file is also a great debugging aid when you are writing new code for this framework.
