Hi Mohorad,

Most of the Twitter APIs support multiple response formats. The most common
formats are XML and JSON but some methods also support RSS and ATOM.

The response format is controlled by changing the extension of the method.
For example:
    http://search.twitter.com/search.json will return search results in JSON
format
    http://search.twitter.com/search.atom will return search results in ATOM
format

The typical format of an API request is:
    http://<api>.twitter.com/<method>.<format>

Not all formats are supported so you should check the documentation on
dev.twitter.com to know if the format you are using is supported.

To know how the library you are using controls the response format you need
to refer to it's documentation or examples.

Best,
