This weekend I had a couple of hours to work on Twitter4R (finally). Today (Sunday) saw the release of Twitter4R 0.1.0 on Rubyforge as a Gem. It may take the Rubyforge gem mirrors a few hours to copy it over, but by Monday morning (US time) you should be able to do the following:
$ sudo gem install twitter4r
irb(main):001:0> require 'twitter'
irb(main):002:0> client = Twitter::Client.new :login =>
'screen_name', :password => 'password'
It supports utf8 strings so this should not be a worry when querying the public timeline!
See Twitter4R Rubyforge Website for more details or the Twitter4R Project Blog.
