' This initial setup, which involves setting the OAuth1 properties and connecting
' to api.twitter.com, is only required once at the beginning.  Once connected, the same
' object instance may be re-used, and if necessary, it will automatically reconnect
' as needed.

' Assume we've previously obtained an access token and saved it to a JSON file..
