JSON Binding and Twitter

In this example our JSON corresponds to the results of a query to get recent tweets about JAXB. We will use the Twitter Search API for this.

Twitter Query

Below is the URL corresponding to the search. We are looking for posts containing the word "jaxb", and want the result returned as JSON:

http://search.twitter.com/search.json?q=jaxb

JSON Result

Below is an example of the JSON returned from Twitter:
