As applications come in for a developer account, we are doing our best to quickly process those that have a well-defined use case and explain how they plan to use the APIs. Those that don’t match those criteria often require email correspondence, to understand what it is you are actually trying to do with the API, which takes us time.
You can read more about how much time it might take to approve your developer account in this announcement post.
Please confirm the email address associated with the @handle that you apply with and respond quickly to our review team if there are follow up questions about your application. If you do not respond reasonably quickly, your application will be closed.
If it has been a while since you applied, chances are that our team has sent you an email requesting more information and you didn’t respond in time. If you think this is the case, please search the email inbox of the account that is associated with the @handle that you applied with and let us know in this topic.
Posting to this topic will not speed up the approval of your application.
Here are some other updates that you should be aware of:
Hey @LeBraat - Thanks alott for replying …
Yes i got verification email after completing the process of account creation but I’m not able to create app because my account is under review and i got this message on the screen of app creation page plz see the attachment link below
I have been waiting for nearly 36 hours for my developer account to be approved and there seems no sign to be approved. While at the same time my two friends who applied for the developer account at the same time as me, got approved immediately without the need to wait for it. They never applied for developer account before it was their first time as well. So why there is so much inconsistency in the approval of developer account. Both my friends and I have same intention regarding developer account. However, it is baffling that some people didn’t have to go through the approval process while some are left waiting for more than a day and still no sign of getting approved.
For the “why”: we’ve explained the changes to the platform in our recent blog post. We had also previously signalled that this was on the roadmap.
We appreciate your patience whilst applications are approved. ALL applications are reviewed against the same set of criteria. As stated in the first post in this topic, please also confirm that your email address is correct, and check for any questions sent via email. You should also make sure that any use case information you provide is clear and complete - padding out a description with boilerplate text will not be helpful.
There’s nothing we can do directly via the forums to expedite the process. Thanks.
thanks for consideration brother I have a presentation in the coming weekend on sentiment Analysis so if you don’t mind can you share consumer and access key with me just for a couple of days I just need live tweets. If not then please suggest me another solution.
Yesterday, we posted this topic to try to set proper expectations.
Posting to this topic will not speed up the application approval process. This topic is simply meant for us to identify and address potential irregularities in the application process. We cannot give estimations on how long the application process will take, and will be actively cleaning up posts in this topic that are not adding value to the conversation.
