HTTP requests with Node.js

I couldn't find this code anywhere on the internets yesterday, posting here for my own convenience.

 
```js
var options = {
  
   host: 'api.twitter.com',
  
   port: 80,
  
   path: '/path',
  
   method: 'GET',
  
   encoding: 'utf8'
  
 };
  
  
  
 http.get({ host: options.host, path: options.path }, function(res2){
  
	var data = [];
  
	res2.on('data', function(chunk) { 
  
		data.push(chunk); 
  
	});
  
  
  
	res2.on('end', function() { // wait for the request to finish
  
		res.json(data.join('')); 
  
	})
  
});
