client = Twitter::REST::Client.new do |config|
config.consumer_key = "XX"
config.consumer_secret = "XY"
config.access_token = "ZZ"
config.access_token_secret = "ZZZ"
You can do the following simple steps to use the Twitter client gem:
# get user id from user name id = client.user( 'user_name' ).id # read user's timeline by id timeline = client.user_timeline id # read user's timeline of yours your_timeline = client.user_timeline
you can omit the username, and you get the timeline of current user, so try also to issue:
user_info = client.user
