List of IP addresses used by Twitterbot


#1

I’m trying to find a method for validating that a request actually comes from the Twitterbot, since it’s trivial for someone to change their user agent to be “Twitterbot/1.0”. Google and Bing ask you to do a reverse DNS lookup to check, Facebook has a whitelist which is updated often, but I can’t find anything for Twitter.

I found someone asking this same question in the forum, but it was over two years ago, so I don’t trust the source to be up-to-date or reliable.

Is there an official whitelist, or other verification method for Twitterbot?


What is the twitter robot IP address I should whitelist?

Hi @spadgos - thanks for the question! We actually do list the IP addresses in the troubleshooting guide. Sorry that it wasn’t more obvious for you to find :smile:
