What is the minimum length for a Twitter ID?


#1

1 character?


#2

If you mean the screen_name, yes there are some one character screen names out there.

I also have a similar question: what is the minimum user_id that is on twitter and the maximum id. I am trying to write a program to browse through all twitter users such that their description or bios have certain words and store their information in a file for data analysis.

I was thinking more of using something like api.get_user(user_id=0) and iterating through the profiles until the max_id is reached.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

There’s a 4-character limit now.
