Twitter docs are improving

I’ve been using the same database schema for recording Twitter user information for a couple of years. I recently agreed to do a training session on Twitter follow programming for the Boston PHP Meetup group, so I decided to check out the Twitter API docs to see if they have gotten any better. I found this really nice “field guide” to data objects. The idea that it is a reproduction of the Audubon model of natural history field guides is a little too cutesy for me, but the information provided is still a big improvement over past docs. My only complaint is that many of the string values, such as location and description, don’t have a maximum length.
