Premium APIs - better ways to scale your access to Twitter data



Today, we’re excited to announce and launch a major set of new APIs, delivering on the roadmap we announced in April.

These new APIs build on the quality and stability of our enterprise data platform, and make it available more widely via a tiered pricing model. For the first time, you can start to search across 30 days of Tweets (instead of the limited 7 days of data on the standard endpoint), and optionally, you can also access our premium enrichments for profile geo, URL expansion, and poll data. Here’s a taste of some of the new features:

  • more Tweets per request (Sandbox + Premium)
  • a far more rich query language enabling more complex queries (Sandbox + Premium)
  • a counts endpoint that returns time-series counts of Tweets (Premium)
  • metadata enrichments, such as expanded URLs and Profile Geo (Premium)

The new endpoints operate slightly differently to the standard APIs you may have built with in the past, so we’ve worked on a developer guide to help you to adjust and understand what’s new - you’ll find that online soon. As you get started with the premium platform, you’ll also discover our new developer dashboard to help you to manage your access and limits - this will be available more widely in the future.

In the next couple of weeks you’ll see us reorganising the forum categories along standard/premium/enterprise categories to reflect the new structure. If you’d like to discuss the new APIs, you can find a set of frequently-asked questions, and discuss the new APIs further, in the Premium category.
