How do I code a site to parse direct msg tweets, act on them, and then reply?

I'm trying to code a website, in PHP and MySQL, that users can interact with via SMS and Twitter. (Twitter is the priority because I'm not about to get a dedicated number for users to send SMS to.) Basically, the interaction would be similar to how users of RememberTheMilk interact with that service via Twitter; they can send a direct message through Twitter to input information and to retrieve information.
I've managed to get some groundwork laid, but I'm struggling as a real novice. I can't quite figure out how to get retrieved DMs to be parsed, individually "executed," and then replied to. Where can I turn for help? I need example code.
