We launched a new version of the standard statuses/lookup and statuses/show/:id endpoints as part of Twitter API v2: Early Access. If you are currently using any of these endpoints, you can use our migration materials to start working with the newer endpoint.
The following API endpoints can be used to programmatically create, retrieve and delete Tweets, Retweets and Likes:
|Tweets||Retweets||Likes (formerly favorites)|
For more details, please see the individual endpoint information within the API reference section.
Tweet/Status - when a status message is shared on Twitter. Also see Introduction to Tweet JSON
Retweet - when a Tweet is re-shared by another specific user. Also see Introduction to Tweet JSON
Like - when a Tweet recieves a 'heart' from a specific user, formerly known as favo(u)rite or 'star'
