Parsing error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string

I'm using twitter api to retrieve fav tweets, then parse them using a template:

$favs_list = $this->connection->get('favorites/list');
$data_to_parse['fav_list'] = $fav_list;
$html = $this->parser->parse('templates/tweet_list', $data_to_parse, TRUE);
$output['html'] = $html;
$this->load->view('read', $output);


the template
tweet_list
is simply:

<h3>Favs:</h3>
{fav_list}
<h5>{text}</h5>
{/fav_list}


But I keep getting these two error, and repeated multiple times:


A PHP Error was encountered
Severity: 4096
Message: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string
Filename: libraries/Parser.php
Line Number: 143

A PHP Error was encountered
Severity: Notice
Message: Object of class stdClass to string conversion
Filename: libraries/Parser.php
Line Number: 143



The weird thing is that, under these errors, my html is shown in correct format.
Any idea on what caused this?

Answer

I don't know optimal method but I do usually with

json_decode(json_encode ($favs_list), true);
