Question about API and your rules


#1

Good day.

Please explain me one moment. In my application, for example, I want to use follow API functions:
followers/ids
friends/ids
users/lookup
statuses/user_timeline

For all this functions and for some others authentication is not required (in function description you write “Requires Authentication? Supported”).

My question: in this case, can I not register my application (I not need token for working). Is it legal?

Consult api@twitter.com for official policy consultations.

I recommend registering and using an application regardless. You’ll be bound by the Twitter terms of service and developer rules regardless.


#3

“recommend” is not “obligatory” isn`t it?

So, I can not register my application and this will legal. Is it true?


#4

If you’re asking for a true or false answer to that question, you need to ask api@twitter.com. I can give you my opinion here.
