Yes, you need the API for that.

I recommend using a list to pull the 5 tweets for the users, as it can save a lot on API calls. If this widget is made for multiple websites, you may want to look into the Streaming API, but I do not believe that this is your case.

I can't figure out if I need the API to accomplish this or just using
a generic user search and jQuery. My platform is PHP can someone give
me a brief roadmap how to accomplish the following tasks....

page 1 (a widget)
pull latest 5 tweets given a list of users
  --- this will never work because 50 tweets will happen before the
"last 5" ever get back but thats what the client wants
  --- this will display full name of the user
  --- this will display the date/time
  --- this will contain a link to view all from last 24 hours

page 2 (after clicking view all) - the last 24 hours of our users page
sorted newest first
Paginated @ 50 tweets per page

   UserOne says
    - tweet one

   UserTwo says
    - tweet one

   UserOne says
    - tweet two

   UserSeven says
    - tweet one

Do I need the API to accomplish this? Any thoughts ideas greatly
