Rss / xml


#1

Hello all,

Is Tweeter a form of RSS application? XML application?

I am doing this for an academic assignment and cannot seem to find anything useful from my research. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ahmed

Almost all of the Twitter API supports XML as an output format – some parts of the API, like timelines, support RSS as an output format. JSON is the overall preferred output format for the majority of the API.

You can request a specific user’s RSS feed by requesting something like:

GET https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=AhmedFjer007

Can i ask, would this RSS feed also be rate-limited if used?


#4

Absolutely, it’s just another API response format.
