Welcome to the new dev.twitter.com!
Here are some quick tips on how to best use a few of the sections in the new site.
Want to receive posts in your email like the old Google Group? You can subscribe to specific categories by first selecting them from the category browser on https://dev.twitter.com/discussions. You can also subscribe to just single threads. Emails will be sent to the email address on file with your account on Twitter. To subscribe to all categories or to otherwise adjust your settings, go to http://dev.twitter.com/user
We encourage developers to search for existing discussions on topics they have questions about, and we want to make that as easy as possible. We’ll be regularly reading the discussions going on and promoting particularly great or correct answers to questions as “best reply” – which should make discovering “answered questions” much easier for all. If you can’t find a topic that matches your problem, go ahead and create a new post and categorize it within the current categories we offer.
Use categories to filter and focus. While reading discussions, selecting different categories displays messages more pertinent to that topic. While posting, selecting the right category
Current categories include:
- REST & Streaming API - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/rest-streaming-api
- Twitter for Websites - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/twitter-websites
- Mobile Development - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/mobile-development
- Auth & OAuth - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/authentication-oauth
- Rules & Policies - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/rules-policies
- Developer Teatime - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/developer-teatime
- Feedback - https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/feedback
Tags: we’ll be tagging discussion posts behind the scenes initially which will make your conversations easier to discover.
You can post sample code by wrapping it in
The REST API documentation is grouped into resource categories. This documentation is intended as a dry reference to the nouns, verbs, actions, transitions, and individual components of the Twitter service. Documentation has been revised to include clearer usage examples and is well-index by our documentation search engine.
You can also find more long-winded documentation on more nuanced features like the [node:5850,title=“Streaming API”] and [node:3240,title=“Authentication”]; also well-index by the search engine. We’re always looking for more topics to explore in more depth and welcome topic suggestions.
You can create & edit your own applications and easily acquire your own access token through the My Applications link in your user dropdown at the top of the screen.
Over time we’ll continue improving the application interfaces with additional tooling to ease the OAuth burden and otherwise.
- There are a few ways to interact with the API outside of a client library or a programming language. @apigee makes this easy with their developer console software that we utilize in our [node:138,title=“Developer Console”].
