Can I get users who have favorited a particular tweet, by tweet ID?


#1

I am currently using the REST API and am wondering if there is any way to get users who have favorited a specific tweet. It looks like the answer may be NO, but some of the similar posts I’ve seen are pretty old.

Also, is this something that the Streaming API could return? I have not much investigated that option, since it looks like the set up would be more complex for us.

Doesn’t seem to be a way to do it for arbitrary tweets, but for your own tweets - there are “favourite” events in User Streams https://dev.twitter.com/streaming/overview/messages-types#Events_event
