  • Support for all V1.1 and V2 endpoints, plus Premium, Ads, Labs, Collections.
  • OAuth1 and bearer token authentication, and proxy server authentication.
  • Streaming endpoints.
  • Paging results.
  • The option to "hydrate" results returned by V2 endpoints.
  • Error handling.

Twitter API Version 2 Code Snippets

[More examples in TwitterAPI/examples/v2 ]

Search for recent tweets, and specify fields and expansions

from TwitterAPI import TwitterAPI
api = TwitterAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret, access_token_key, access_token_secret, api_version='2')

One Method For Everything

The request() method works with all version 1.1 and version 2 endpoints. Typcally, request() takes two arguments: a Twitter endpoint and a dictionary of endpoint parameters.

The method returns an object that will iterate either search results and streams. The returned object also gives you access to the raw response (r.text) and the HTTP status code (r.status_code). See the requests library documentation for more details.
