Programmatically analyze, learn from, and engage with the conversation on Twitter
The Twitter API provides the tools you need to contribute to, engage with, and analyze the conversation happening on Twitter.
Twitter API v2: Early Access
We’re building a new Twitter API with a modern and more sustainable foundation as well as an improved developer experience. Early Access is now available for the first few endpoints of v2, which enable you to listen to, analyze, and control the conversation on Twitter. Additional endpoints, features, and access levels will be released soon!
Twitter API v1.1
The Twitter API v1.1 was launched in 2012 and enables you to post, interact, and retrieve data for resources such as Tweets, Users, Direct Messages, Lists, Trends, Media, and Places. We are currently in the process of replacing this version with the Twitter API v2.
