The Twitter Ruby SDK by Erik Michaels-Ober is a gem that allows developers to integrate the Twitter API into their Ruby applications. This SDK supports Ruby 2.0.0, 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 as well as JRuby 184.108.40.206.
Buffer, a social media manger, opened the Buffer API last week beyond its internal apps. According to co-founder, Leo Wildrich, the decision sprung from its single purpose as a company: "How can we make sharing links, videos and images to your social networks easier and more powerful?" Unlike its main competitors, Hootsuite and Sprout Social, Buffer "focus[es] on non-original content sharing, especially photos, videos and articles" states Tech Crunch. As Buffer launches its API, and attempts to make sharing easier, Wildrich stressed that Buffer aims "to build a new sharing standard...across the web."
