in thread How do I use curl with perl and Twitter

I don't see, neither from the documentation nor from the Net::Twitter code, where you would need to construct an URL, or a format yourself. The ->show_user method seems to take a user ID, it requests the JSON formatted user details and then turns them into a Perl data structure.

If you don't have Net::Twitter installed on your host, you can easily install it, by following Yes, even you can use CPAN

    Net::Twitter is installed. I am no longer getting errors, but this piece of code is not producing any output (and the foreach loop is straight out of http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/CTHOM/Net-Twitter-2.06/README
    my $nt = Net::Twitter->new( traits => [qw/API::REST/], username => $usename, password => $pwd ); my $results = $nt->show_user($twitterID); foreach my $user (@{ $results }) { my $id = $user->{id}; my $name = $user->{name}; print STDOUT $id." ".$name."<br>"; }
