There is a lot to unpack here, but I’ll try my best.

First off, I am not aware of any C# examples unfortunately. Hopefully someone else from the community can chime in with a good example, or if not, please do feel free to help contribute to the community!

If you are trying to search a hashtag or for specific posts and users attached to those posts, you can do so in either realtime or historically.
Historically - You are going to want to use the Search Tweets APIs. We have a lot of information in our documentation that should help you out.
Realtime - You are going to want to use our Filter Realtime Tweets APIs.

If you are trying to lookup a user’s information, you are going to want to use our either GET users/show or GET users/lookup.

While we do include some engagement data in our Tweet payloads, you can pull in-depth engagement metrics using our enterprise Engagement API.

Please let me know if you need anything else!

Hi Ahmed,
On the c# question. There are few libraries that you can use to get started:



I have only tried Twitterizer and it was super simple, though it hasn’t been updated for a while, so I am not sure if it still works.

If you are inclined to write your own code without a library, the API is very simple, you just make a call and pass parameters with HttpClient to be honest, the only tricky part is setting up oAuth in your requests.

Hi Ahmed,
If you are inclined to writing your own authentication code without a library, here is how to setup oAuth

I haven’t actually tried this code, but the logic looks very similar to what our code does.
