How to map GUI id to API id for promoted tweets?


When I export my data from the GUI for promoted tweets, there is no ID, only a Status ID# in the format #609423836832######.
But when I hit the REST endpoint[act ID]/promoted_tweets, I get back entries with id’s like 1lyy1, 1ngnv, and similar.

How do I map what I’m seeing in this request back to the GUI? I’m trying to pull stats using a list of promoted tweet id’s, but my account has hundreds of them and it maxes out the API limit constantly, so I need to figure out how to pare down what I’m querying for.

Thank you,


Hey Daniel,

The Status ID’s provided from the GUI data export will map to the the tweet_id returned inside of each of the promoted tweet objects from the GET call to See the below example.

  "request": {
  "data": [
      "line_item_id": "2dfxf",
      "id": "6zmd1",
      "paused": false,
      "created_at": "2015-04-22T17:25:06Z",
      "updated_at": "2015-04-22T17:25:06Z",
      "approval_status": "ACCEPTED",
      "tweet_id": "569185240197033984", <--------------------------------
      "deleted": false
  "data_type": "promoted_tweet",
  "total_count": 1,
  "next_cursor": null
