Hone Your Powers – Part 2 (JSON)

In this challenge, we are required to perform some data parsing using JSON methods. Since I am going to use Python, I will be importing some libraries into my file and then make some real API calls to Twitter instead of using the provided JSON data.

I am going to do several things and still make this post as short as possible!

[python]
#perform some data parsing using json.
#make api calls to twitter servers
#### mozilla challenge – programming with twitter api

import urllib2 #python module for handling urls
import json #json anyone??

url = ‘http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/eenvincible.json’

Programming With Twitter API – P2PU Challenge 2
