So in the previous post in the Twitter Series, I covered how you can send a text-based tweet. Now in this post, I will show you how to send a tweet along with an image.
Now it should be noted at the moment that the PHP Twitter library we are using, Abraham, doesn't seem to support natively Twitter's "statuses/update_with_media" API call (neither did it in v1), however there are a few work arounds, some simple and some a bit complex, however for this tutorial we'll stick to a more simpler workaround.

Once you land on the site, there's an upload box infront of you to which you can select which image you want to upload. Once you've selected... [read more]
During the evening hours (8:50pm ET) of Wednesday 17th April, a huge explosion occured at The West Fertilizer Plant in West. (Located north of Waco in the state of Texas). The explosion ripped through the plant and sent a huge plume of smoke high into the air.
