There are 3 API's that I know of that you can use:

Twitturly (Ours - Private beta only at the moment)
Tweetmeme
BackTweet

Between the 3 of us, I am sure you can accomplish whatever your end-goal is.

I do not think BackTweet processes all URLs, so they may not have a URL, but
I do know that we do and Tweetmeme does.

I thought about them, but only as a last resort. Did not know about
backtweets - they look good, but they also have a limit of 1000 calls/
day. I had also looked into FriendFeed, but they seem to only return
people who are also on FriendFeed.
