Hey <a href="http://twitter/com/somerandomguy">@somerandomguy</a>, have you seen the news at <a href="http://tinyurl.com/ll833p">http://tinyurl.com/ll833p</a>
Now, the problem is when I use the Twitter API to pull down all the feed information in XML, the <text></text> field is unformatted, just like the first above.
What I'm looking for is information on what I need on my backend in PHP to make the transition. I'm guessing it will be some form of regular expressions, which I am not very familiar with yet. I'm not asking anyone to "do my homework", I am just asking to be pointed in the right direction.
Thanks a ton,
EDIT: Interestingly enough, I notice that the forum did exactly what I am looking for to my first string, it took the plaintext URL I typed and added the proper <a></a> information to turn it into a clickable link.
