Deriving information from t.co links

python
links

#1

Hey everyone,

I’ve been working on a Python streaming API that automatically pulls in Tweets and plots them using Leaflet. We’ve extracted the t.co link that is often present to be able to see the original post where a Tweet was sent from. However, given that the TOS do not allow rendering of pages in iFrames, we’re a bit lost on how to derive the original text or image from the source. Maybe I’m missing something, but I can’t seem to find any information on this in the docs, nor can I find similar topics.

So the question is then - does the API provide a way to retrieve information or render t.co links?

Thanks in advance!
