Please note:

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

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


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.
