    Hello everybody.

    I want to know if ruby or c++ are good languages of programming to develop any kind of aplication for webs.

    I am thinking about programming something to scrape tweets from any user in twitter. I have the basic knoledge in c++ and ruby is quite similar so if you can help me with guides or anything helpful it would be great

    Thanks to everybody

    C++ is overkill for simple internet marketing stuff like scraping -- unless you want it to be super fast but takes forever to program it.
    Ruby is better for what you are wanting.

    You should consider getting it in any way.You will save alot of time when building bots, and the learning curve is not that hard, i always taught "hell i will never learn this" and yet i was wrong.Trust me, it saves alot of effort and the most important, time.And there is a demo you can try out.

    Use PHP. We already have open source wrapper classes for that. Just extend and put it to work :)
