Twitter’s API platform enables a robust ecosystem of developers and innovators to build solutions using public Twitter data that serve a wide range of needs. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be unifying our API platform to make it easier for developers to build new applications that can smoothly scale as they grow. We’re also launching new APIs and endpoints that enable developers to build on the unique attributes of Twitter to create better experiences for businesses.
Today we are opening up access to several new Direct Message APIs so that developers can build better personalized customer experiences at scale. These APIs are designed to help businesses use the entire Twitter platform, from public Tweets to private Direct Messages, to deliver faster, richer, and more engaging human- and bot-powered customer service, marketing, and engagement experiences.
These APIs enable innovative interactions in Direct Messages, like what @United has created for exploring travel.
In 2015, we launched the official Twitter plugin for WordPress to help sites powered by WordPress embed Twitter content and grow their audience on Twitter. Today we’re excited to announce an update that makes it even easier than ever to bring fresh, relevant content into your WordPress-powered site.
Developers are an important part of the Twitter ecosystem and have been since the earliest days. Over time, we expanded our developer platform from a set of APIs to include a suite of syndicated products, a data platform (via Gnip), a publisher monetization platform (through MoPub), and a suite of mobile developer offerings through Fabric.
