    use CGI::Untaint;
    use CGI::Untaint::Twitter;
    # ...
    my $info = CGI::Info->new();
    my $params = $info->params();
    # ...
    my $u = CGI::Untaint->new($params);
    my $tid = $u->extract(-as_Twitter => 'twitter');

BUGS ^

Twitter only allows 150 requests per hour. If you exceed that, CGI::Untaint::Twitter won't validate and will assume all ID's are valid.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-cgi-untaint-twitter at rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=CGI-Untaint-Twitter. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
