Hello,

I have a sort of array printed from a JSON object (see at the end) and i would like my script to parse the values in [text], [sender_screen_name], [id] and [sender_id] from it. I want my program to automatically use the values from [text] and insert them into another array which then posts these values to feed a server side script for a chatbot and [sender_screen_name] and [sender_id] to be used for teh method that posts the answer to twitter.

Code:
$direct_message = $OAuth->get('https://api.twitter.com/1/direct_messages.json?count=1&page='); // pulls a direct message from my automated Twitter account, one at the time

echo "<pre>"; // 

print_r ($direct_message); // this to visualise the array in a readable format

echo "</pre>";  // ditto

$data = array ("say"=>"the value of [text] from the array i got from twitter should be parsed here  ", "bot_id"=>"1", "format"=>"xml"); // these are the values to be posted to the
                                                                                                                                                                                          page to feed the chatbot 
$url = "http://localhost/program-o/gui/xml/index.php";

$fields = '';
foreach($data as $key => $value) {
  $fields .= $key . '=' . $value . '&';
}
rtrim($fields, '&');

   $post = curl_init();

   curl_setopt($post, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
   curl_setopt($post, CURLOPT_POST, count($data));
   curl_setopt($post, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $fields);
   curl_setopt($post, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

   $result = curl_exec($post);

   curl_close($post);


$dm->post('direct_messages/new', array('text' =>answer from bot, 'screen_name' =>the value i am trying to get from the array i got from twitter, 'sender_id'=>wanna do the same as screen name)); // this is the method to post the answer from the chatbot back to twitter.
Here's the array that has the data from Twitter:
