Is it possible to find out a users username on Twitter from their domain name?


Hi All,

We’re currently looking at building an external application. One of the features of the software would be to search for a users Twitter account from their website URL. I just had a few questions regarding this:

  1. Is it possible to return a users twitter handle by searching their domain name through the API ?
  2. Is there a limit on how many times you can search this API ?
  3. What are the costs for the API if there is a limit ?

I assume this wouldn’t violate any of Twitters policies and by the looks of it, we can do it by searching entities. I just wanted to make sure though so any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,


Can anyone shed any light on this?
