Twitter and Zend Framework

This past weekend I was trying to use the Zend Framework Twitter library. While the documentation made it look simple, it was missing a lot of steps and information. With the help of a lot of googling I came up with this:

        $userToken = 'user_token';
        $userSecret = 'user_secret';
        $appConsumerKey = 'your_app_consumer_key';
        $appConsumerSecret = 'your_app_consumer_secret';
        // generate an Oauth token to pass to Zend_Service_Twitter
        $token = new Zend_Oauth_Token_Access();

        $options = array(
            'username'       => 'twitter_username',
            'accessToken'    => $token,
            'consumerKey'    => $appConsumerKey,
            'consumerSecret' => $appConsumerSecret

        $twitter = new Zend_Service_Twitter($options);
        // verify user's credentials with Twitter
