This endpoint was recently graduated from Twitter Developer Labs, and is the replacement of  v1.1 statuses/show, v1.1 statuses/lookup, and Labs Tweet lookup. If you are currently using any of these endpoints, you can use our migration materials to start working with this new endpoint.

The REST endpoint uses the GET method to return information about a Tweet or group of Tweets, specified by a Tweet ID. The response returns one or many Tweet objects, which deliver fields such as the Tweet text, author, media attachments, and more. 

This endpoint can also be used to receive up-to-date details on a Tweet, verify that a Tweet is available, or update stored details following a compliance event.

To access this endpoint, you must have an approved developer account, and have activated the new developer portal. When authenticating, you must use keys and tokens from a developer App that is located within a Project. Learn more about getting access to the Twitter API v2 endpoints in our "Getting started" page.
