Instagram uses JSON formatting for their API too. Depending on the data you
want to retrieve, you may need to use OAuth. Fortunately they make it
pretty easy.

Have you considered using PHP to fetch the data you need, and then convert
it from JSON to XML? It may be easier to deal with.

Not really, JSON support is built into the Flash player, so can you convert 
from JSON to AS and back.


var data:Object = JSON.parse(jsonData);

where jsonData is a JSON formatted string.

Peter

Both have API's, so should be documented how to get the data you're after.

Hi John,
Well, googling twitter api for flash as3 yielded some good results for me.
There was this link that looks promising.
https://blog.twitter.com/2006/twitter-api-flash-developers 

Also found this package example.  

http://www.untoldentertainment.com/blog/2009/04/02/tutorial-pull-twitter-updates-into-flash/

don't know if its what your wanting, but found it with google search terms: 
pull twitter feeds with flash as3

There is this too.

Hope one of these does the trick. Good luck!

Hi Karl,

Thank you for your links, but unfortunately, I saw all of these and they are 
dated 2009, 2010 and/or 2012 and use the API v1. That API was retired in May of 
2013. 

I found this from the Twitter Developers pages:

We've chosen to throw our support behind the JSON format shared across the 
platform. Consequently, we’ve decided to discontinue support for XML, Atom, and 
RSS.”

And all the examples I’m finding are older and whether its direct calls from 
Flash or PHP, if they are calling to .rss or .xml and through the API v1, the 
pages don’t exist or links are broken, etc.

Very frustrating and that’s just Twitter Having less luck with Pinterest and 
Instagram. 

Thanks again though for the suggestions,
John
