ThinkTwit Update 1.3.7

Hi guys,

I’ve just updated ThinkTwit to version 1.3.7 with the following changes:

  • Added the ability to filter tweets by hashtag/keyword (thanks to Martijn Pantlin for the code)
  • Made improvements to data loading (from the database) when entries do not exist (rare, mostly during upgrades)
  • Added the option to show “Follow @username” links

parse_feed() has changed so if you use this directly please do update it – I did look in to creating a new version and then deprecating the old function with an overload to keep it working, but doesn’t look like PHP allows this usage unfortunately.

As usual do be careful when upgrading – run some tests if possible – and let me know if you have any issues or feedback so that I can make changes. Tens of hours goes in to every version and I can only test a certain amount – if you’re interested in beta testing do let me know!
