My media files (video and images) are uploaded on some third party storage on the web ago (for example CDNs, YouTube, Google Drive and…).
Now I want to upload them on the twitter by API.
I won’t to use the media links in body of my tweets, instead I want upload them as media tweets (each one with its caption).
Also as I said:
I want to prevent this process that » I download the medias from the web storage on my computer and then upload them on the twitter!
It has some negative side effects for my project (increasing traffics on my computer and slow-downing it, increasing the upload process time of each media and more costs).
So I need a method to upload the medias from a web link (for example a link from Amazon CDN) instead of passing the bytes of the media to the Twitter directly from my computer.
Some Social Medias have this ability in their API, often they return the upload result to a
Webhook so we can verify that the uploaded media (by
media_id) has been uploaded successfully.
- I could not find any useful method about this ability in the Twitter API.
- Is there a way that I don’t know it?
- If there is not a way yet, is it possible to provide this feature in your API? When?
