Can you use a Twitter Ads token for the regular Twitter API?

restapi
rest
ads
api

If you have a functional token that works for the Twitter Ads API, I assumed you could re-use this token for the regular Twitter API (specifically the statuses_show endpoint). Is this not the case?

@obscyuriy: It should work. Have you tried making requests? You’d want to do something like the following:

$ twurl -H api.twitter.com "/1.1/statuses/show.json?id={tweet_id}" | jq

@juanshishido ah, okay, I figured out what I was doing wrong - I was using the Twitter Ads app/secret and the REST token, so there was a mismatch. thanks for the help.
