I’ve got a problem, I’m developing a small marketing tool that reads https://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json?url=http://example.com, each day it queries that api url 2 times a minute for 30 minutes. It worked great for few months and now it seems like twitter is actively blocking access for us.
Is that even possible? it seems that it affected whole C class block of IPs
Unfortunately access to that URL is not guaranteed or documented as a public Twitter API endpoint. Where did you find it referenced?
You may find this older discussion useful Is http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json? a valid way to get the tweet count for a URL?
Don’t remember where it came up but it was on some bulletin board I think
Unfortunately this is not a public API endpoint that we can provide support for.
