Twitter opens reverse chronological home timeline to app developers

Entangled in an uphill battle against Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Twitter is giving third-party app developers greater access to its reverse chronological timeline, to allow them to retrieve the most recent Tweets and Retweets posted by the authenticated user and the accounts they follow.

In an update, the microblogging platform said the reverse-chronological home timeline is now available on Twitter’s application programming interface (API) v2.

“This feature is important for many developer use cases and we will continue to prioritize innovation and features that allow you to build with the core elements of the Twitter experience,” the company said Friday. evening.

The Twitter v2 API is an interface that developers use to get data from the platform.

“The increased Tweet rate and pagination limits in v2 are going to be a significant benefit for our users. Given the importance of this call, it really underscores Twitter’s ongoing commitment to modernizing its API,” said Paul Haddad, one of Tweetbot’s developers.

All developers building with the Twitter v2 API can start using the new endpoints immediately, Twitter said.

“Using Tweet annotations and the reverse chronological home timeline, you can build an app that shows you many Tweets per main topic that you have in your home timeline based on each Tweet’s annotations,” said the society.
