API playground


#1

Hello, I am new to tis environment and need to learn a lot. I would like to know if there is a playground to test the Rest API and get the HTML codes to post into my account.
Any pointers would be most appreciated.
Thank.

There are a few options here:

  • if you want to test API calls, you can use the API console provided by Apigee, or you could use our command-line twurl tool. There’s no “non-live” test environment, though, you’ll be using the real Twitter API and live service.
  • if you just want cut-and-paste HTML to add to a website, you can use publish.twitter.com to customise buttons or widgets to embed on your site.

Thank you Andy, precisely what I was looking for. Now I just need to get myself a token to try posting tweets.
