Twitter API v1.1

What's included in v1.1?

Twitter API v1.1 includes our legacy, public standard API that let you engage with the Twitter platform, our premium APIs that allow you to scale data access for searching historical Tweets and subscribing to account activity, and our enterprise-level API products that allow you to access Twitter data at scale. 

We recently released several replacement endpoints to Twitter API v2: Early access, which has functionality built for developers wanting to understand and analyze the Twitter conversation and other similar use cases. 

Standard APIs

Our free, standard APIs are great for getting started, testing an integration, validating a concept, or creating solutions that complement what you can create with premium and enterprise products. Examples include posting content to Twitter and retrieving similar data to what is on and the Twitter mobile app.
