Authoring a SQL Server report using the twitter API

Twitter is the 'What are you doing (now)?' social messaging,  fastest growing phenomena on the Internet. Members who register with 'Twitter' publish brief messages in text which other members who have agreed to follow can read these messages. Media has jumped on this idea to send out brief messages which will probably appear in extended form later. They (twitter) are trying to monetize the service.

My new article captures the information from one of its API and formats that captured information and turns it into a SQL Server Report using the Report Builder. In this article it is a two step process but it can be bundled into a single applicaiton. You may access the following article on SSWUG.org website.
