Please let me know if we can get unread messages ID from Twitter API 1.1? I am new for Twitter API.

Thanks

If you mean the read/unread status of a tweet or direct message or counts related to the same, no they are not available in the API.

@episod Taylor Singletary So then please tell me how can I notify a user for a new message is came in Inbox?

If your application has access to a user’s direct messages, you can poll the direct messages timeline for new results. Or use Site Streams to be streamed them in real time. But you won’t have access to the read or unread state that Twitter now stores.

Are there any updates on this query ?


#6

No, there is no change to the way the API works.
