Providing an api tool


I recently created an api tool that searches Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Tumblr, Flickr and Google Plus by hashtag and returns json data via rest endpoint.

I posted the tool to

Does anyone know if this tool is within twitter’s developer policy?

Also I am currently using my own api key, I would like to allow users to use their own api keys, is that within the developer policy?

Thanks in advance,


This tool violates §I.6.b of the Developer Policy.

Sounds good, if just return the ids would I be within the policy?

Thanks for your help,
