Clojure can be terse sometimes. ┬áThis gets the timeline of posts of the people you follow on twitter.
    • (import '(twitter4j TwitterFactory Query))(map #(str (. % getText))(. (.. (TwitterFactory.) getInstance (search(Query."Clojure")))getTweets)) (via @asakawajunya) -- this is a search of the latest tweets that have the word 'clojure' in them.
