Introducing the Chirp Developer Challenge
In celebration of Chirp, we are introducing the Chirp Developer Challenge! In this challenge, we are searching for the best uses of the Twitter API v2 across three categories: Content Discovery apps, Conversation Safety tools, and Public Good apps.
Help us to unlock new experiences for people on Twitter and inspire other developers. We want to push the boundaries of what’s possible with our platform, and we need your help to bring to life the experiences that will define this new frontier.
Submit your app and you could win prizes valued at over $520,000! Winners in each category will each receive;
Up to (2) tickets to Chirp
One year of free enterprise-grade access to the Twitter API v2
Six one-hour dedicated office hours with the Developer Relations team
One dedicated one-hour session with our Product team
Paid and organic Twitter promotion
Lots of bragging rights!
We’ll also award $5,000 and other prizes to five finalists. The submission deadline is August 19, 2022.
It doesn’t matter when the app was built, as long as it uses the Twitter API v2 and is a standalone app, not a feature of an existing app. Share your code repository, include a short video, and fill out the form to provide some details about your submission. Read all the rules here.*
Twitter Developer Meetup groups around the world will host Build Days, which bring developers together to learn what they can build on the platform and how to get started, brainstorm ideas for the challenge, form teams, and submit their apps. Join a meetup near you. Or start your own.
Continuing to improve our website
We also want to share a few updates we’ve made to improve the experience on our website, developer.twitter.com.
New blog: We have transformed our blog with a new dynamic design and user experience to help developers access resources needed to inspire, innovate, and build successfully with our platform. This new destination will be our official home for all product news, success stories, technical best practices, and community content.
New navigation: We’ve heard the feedback that some developers have had trouble navigating our site, so we created a more robust top-level navigation that elevates more content up front, showcases enhanced organization and structure, and enables a more intuitive browsing experience. We will continue to optimize and improve our ‘MegaNav’ over time.
