This API creates a persistent connection between the Twitter servers and your application. We will essentially start a stream of incoming NSData object to an NSURLConnection that you create querying the stream. We will look into the different search parameters which can be passed into the request, the way in which our code responds to authentication requests from Twitter, and the logic we must use to ensure that the data we have received is a complete XML element and not chopped off.
Stay tuned for the next game programming tutorial. Should be up soon…
