LINQ[Pad] to Twitter

Joe Mayo - LINQ to Twitter Queries with LINQPad

"LINQPad is a popular utility for .NET developers who use LINQ a lot. In addition to standard SQL queries, LINQPad also supports other types of LINQ providers, including LINQ to Twitter. The following sections explain how to set up LINQPad for making queries with LINQ to Twitter.

LINQPad comes in a couple versions and this example uses LINQPad4, which runs on the .NET Framework 4.0.

1. The first thing you'll need to do is set up a reference to the LinqToTwitter.dll. From the Query menu, select query properties. Click the Browse button and find the LinqToTwitter.dll binary. You should see something similar to the Query Properties window below.



Got to love LINQPad. All I need is a LINQ[PAD] to MyLife and all would be good... :P
