Your $nt is just the interface to the API.  If you want to, say, get the
latest status updates to your/your friends' accounts, you need to use
that interface to retrieve them:

my $timeline = $nt->friends_timeline;
for my $tweet (@$timeline) {
  print $tweet->{created_at} . ': ' . $tweet->{text};

(Code is untested, but should work.  Note that the maintainer of
Net::Twitter was talking a couple months ago about wrapping the
retrieved messages up into objects, so $tweet may no longer be a bare
hashref; I just haven't needed to update my direct Twitter-interfacing
functions since then so I haven't stayed on top of it.  Check the
Net::Twitter documentation for full details.)
