Twitter is providing third-party app developers wider access to its reverse chronological timeline, allowing them to retrieve the most recent Tweets and Retweets posted by the authenticated user and the accounts they follow. Twitter is embroiled in a fierce takeover war with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The reverse-chronological home timeline is now available on the Twitter application programming interface (API) v2, according to a Twitter post.
“We will continue to prioritise innovation and functionality that allows you to build with the key aspects of the Twitter experience,” the firm said late Friday.
The Twitter API v2 provides a developer interface for retrieving data from the site.
“For our users, the higher pace and pagination Tweet restrictions of v2 will be a significant benefit. Given the importance of this call, it demonstrates Twitter’s ongoing commitment to modernising their API “One of Tweetbot’s developers, Paul Haddad, stated.
The new endpoints are now available to all Twitter API v2 developers, according to Twitter.
“You can design an application that displays you how many Tweets per top topic you have in your home timeline based on each Tweet’s annotations using Tweet annotations and reverse chronological home timeline,” the business claimed.
