Before you can use any other API functions, you need to login:
;; If the first argument is non-NIL, a verify_credentials call is made ;; to twitter. The username and password are assumed to be ;; twit:*username* and twit:*password* by default. (twit:login t) ;; You can also explicitly specify the username and password using ;; twit:login (twit:login t "username" "password")
(twit:forget-state) to forget the current session state. This
will clear the last noticed status/message ids for functions like
(twit:logout) will also
clear the username and password.
(twit:m-rate-limit-status) returns a rate-limit object which
gives the number of hits remaining this hour, the reset time for the
rate limit counter, etc.
