Is there a resource available to clarify the required knowledge?

No need to say that I was lost too. But I would like to know where I can get the knowledge or explanation for this level of exercise. Is it covered in the Ruby class or should we use Google to search for extra information.

Hi Helen,

Do you have a good understanding of Ruby? That would be a good place to start! Not everything you need will be covered in those lessons but it should give you a good grounding.

After that I would suggest looking to understand how a RESTful api service works...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_state_transfer

reading through the Twitter documentation...
https://dev.twitter.com/docs

and looking at some of the libraries available in Ruby to help you interact with the twitter api
