I've been using a tweet linkify() function that I wrote myself a couple of years ago, and then rewrote to take advantage of entities when they arrived. It works well about 98% of the time, but it still chokes on some UTF8 characters, which causes URLs to be applied with an incorrect offset of a few characters. Does anyone have a really solid PHP entity linkifier set of code they recommend? Or is there one hidden in the API that I never noticed?
BTW, did anyone notice that during Obama's townhall there was a tweet that was displayed on the big screen that had an apostrophe incorrectly garbled by UTF8? I loved it when @jack blamed it on the tweet's author, saying something like "He entered it wrong". -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: https://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: https://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: https://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/twitter-development-talk
