parse twitter status with json php
I am trying to parse a twitter user stats (with php) -- I am pretty unfamiliar with parsing json so this is giving me a bit of a headache (I'm missing something silly here I know). I've looked at a bunch of answers/posts from others but can't quite peg it. Any help is appreciated.
Essentially what i want to get is the [url] and the [text] but I keep getting errors in php.
 => stdClass Object ( [in_reply_to_user_id] => [in_reply_to_status_id_str] => [retweet_count] => 0 [id_str] => 180735710897250304 [in_reply_to_user_id_str] => [geo] => [favorited] => [user] => stdClass Object ( [id_str] => 46023 [id] => 460 ) [in_reply_to_status_id] => [in_reply_to_screen_name] => [truncated] => [contributors] => [source] => Facebook [entities] => stdClass Object ( [hashtags] => Array ( ) [urls] => Array (  => stdClass Object ( [expanded_url] => http://www.buzzfeed.co [url] => http://t.c [indices] => Array (  => 0  => 20 ) [display_url] => buzzfeed.com/c )  => stdClass Object ( [expanded_url] => http://fb [url] => http://t.

The json_decode function takes an optional 2nd parameter to return an associative array instead of an object.
Then, you can just retrieve the values normally as you would with any array.
You can also get the values as below for example:
This will display the id_str value from your json data.
