ZF-8218: remove unnecessary requirements from Zend_Service_Twitter constructor


There are cases where Zend_Service_Twitter can be used without authentication, but the constructor requires $username and $password to always be passed. For example, checking if a given username exists or not:

$tw = new Zend_Service_Twitter(null); $exists = $tw->user->show($who)->id() !== null;

Since the first parameter is required, one can't simply do this:

$tw = new Zend_Service_Twitter();

I'd like to propose that both constructor parameters should be optional, in order to more cleanly support these anonymous uses.


Done with r19095 and merged into the release branch with r19096
