Please note:

We recently released sampled stream, a Twitter API v2 endpoint that has similar functionality to this one.

This endpoint is now deprecated and will be retired on October 31, 2022. Learn more about this change and see our migration resources.

This endpoint has NOT been updated to include Tweet edit metadata. Learn more about these metadata on the "Edit Tweets" fundamentals page


GET statuses/sample


Returns a small random sample of all public statuses. The Tweets returned by the default access level are the same, so if two different clients connect to this endpoint, they will see the same Tweets.
