82.4 Accessing the Twitter API

Due to changes in version 1.1 of the Twitter API, some code changes are necessary in the getTimeLine method located in the TwitterAppViewController.m file:

Previous code:
NSURL *requestURL = [NSURL
  URLWithString:@"http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/home_timeline.json"];

NSMutableDictionary *parameters = [[NSMutableDictionary alloc] init];

[parameters setObject:@"20" forKey:@"count"];
[parameters setObject:@"1" forKey:@"include_entities"];
New code:
NSURL *requestURL =
  [NSURL URLWithString:@"https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json"];

NSDictionary *parameters = @{@"screen_name" : @"@techotopia",
                             @"include_rts" : @"0",
                             @"trim_user" : @"1",
                             @"count" : @"20"};

The above code downloads the Twitter stream for the @techotopia user. To access a different user, change the screen_name value in the parameters dictionary.

      completion:^(NSArray *reminders) {
        for (EKReminder *reminder in reminders) {
