Add RSS feeds to your Twitter stream using MySQL and Perl

Adding good content to Twitter can be a pain. I can’t do it during working hours, and I don’t have much time at night. But, the more content you have, the more followers you can gain, and the more your original tweets can be seen (hopefully). I have written several posts about using the latest Perl-Twitter API – Net::Twitter::Lite::WithAPIv1_1, so you might want to check these out as well.

Use MySQL and Perl to automatically find, follow and unfollow twitter users

A friend of mine asked me how they could automatically follow and unfollow people on Twitter. But they didn’t want to follow just anyone and everyone. He had a Twitter account which they used for recruiting in a very narrow construction industry. He wanted to find people in the same industry and follow them – hoping they would follow him back and learn about his open jobs. When I joined Twitter back in 2008, I wrote a similar program to automatically follow/unfollow users, but the Twitter API has changed quite a bit since then. So I decided to re-write the program with the latest Perl-Twitter API – Net::Twitter::Lite::WithAPIv1_1.

Before you attempt to use these scripts, you will need to register your application with twitter via apps.twitter.com, and obtain the following:

consumer_key
consumer_secret
access_token …

Using Perl to retrieve direct messages from Twitter, insert messages into a MySQL database and then delete the messages

In two earlier posts, I gave some examples on how to use Perl to send tweets stored in a MySQL database to Twitter, and then how to automatically reply to your retweets with a “thanks”. In this post, I will show you how to automatically download your direct messages from Twitter, store the messages in a MySQL database, and then delete them.

I don’t like the way Twitter makes me read my direct messages. Granted, the majority of them are not real messages. The message is usually thanking me for following the sender, and then there is a personal website link or a link to a product they are selling. But if I want to delete a direct message, I have to …

Calvin Sun on MySQL at Twitter, Percona Live 2014 and Facebook

Twitter’s Calvin Sun

Twitter’s Calvin Sun (@Calvinsun2012) is looking forward to the fast-approaching Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo this April 1-4 in Santa Clara, Calif. He’ll be speaking, yes, but he’s also looking forward to learning from his peers – particularly those at Facebook. Both companies, he explained, are in the rather unique positions of unprecedented rapid growth and ever-expanding performance demands.

Calvin is a senior engineering manager at Twitter, where he manages MySQL development. Prior to that, he managed the InnoDB team at Oracle. Calvin also worked for MySQL Inc. from 2006 to 2008, managing MySQL storage engines development. He has over 15+ years of database development experience.

Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014: Things I’m looking forward to

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is just two months away. I’m very excited about this year’s event which continues our tradition of open technical discussions and inviting all parties to the table.

We have a great amount of technical talks from Oracle – I’m especially excited about future-focused talks shedding some light about what to expect in MySQL 5.7 and beyond. This content is best covered by developers actually designing the system and writing the code. We also have great coverage of MySQL alternatives from Percona and MariaDB. You can view the entire program here.

It is great to see well-rounded coverage of many …

Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013: It feels like 2007 again

I actually don’t remember exactly whether it was in 2006, 2007 or 2008 — but around that time the MySQL community had one of the greatest MySQL conferences put on by O’Reilly and MySQL. It was a good, stable, predictable time.

Shortly thereafter, the MySQL world saw acquisitions, forks, times of uncertainly, more acquisitions, more forks, rumors (“Oracle is going to kill MySQL and the whole Internet”) and just a lot of drama and politics.

And now, after all this time some 6 or 7 years later, it feels like a MySQL Renaissance. All of the major MySQL players are coming to the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013. I am happy to see Oracle’s engineers coming with talks — and now with a great MySQL 5.6 release — and I have great …
