Tweets

GET accounts/:account_id/scoped_timeline

Retrieve Tweet details for the account’s full promotable user (default) or the user specified in the user_id parameter. This can be any of the promotable users under the account.

This endpoint will only return Tweets created after the Ads account for the corresponding @handle is activated. The recommended approach to backfilling all Tweets is to use the GET statuses/user_timeline to retrieve all the Tweets for the handle and use this endpoint for all subsequent requests.

Note: When filtering by objective, we will fetch the first set of promotable Tweets and then filter those appropriate for the objective. This results in inconsistent page sizes in the results. If a next_cursor is returned, there are additional Tweets available for this filter.

POST accounts/:account_id/tweet

Create a Tweet for the account’s full promotable user (default) or the user specified in the as_user_id parameter. Both nullcasted (default) and organic Tweet creation is supported. Nullcasted Tweets do not appear in the public timeline and are not served to followers. Either type can be used in campaigns.

If the authenticated user is not the FULL promotable user on this account, determine if they have permission to Tweet on behalf this user by making a request to the GET accounts/:account_id/authenticated_user_access endpoint. A permission of TWEET_COMPOSER indicates that the user may use this endpoint to create nullcasted Tweets on behalf of the FULL promotable user.

When using the upload.twitter.com endpoint for media, pass in the same user_id value for the additional_owners parameter as the as_user_id value that you pass in to this endpoint.

To retrieve Tweets, use GET accounts/:account_id/scoped_timeline endpoint.
