How to use the API

How do I use the API?

The API has been designed to be easy to use and you can start exporting profiles with a single request. The export Twitter profiles endpoint allows you to provide a webhook which will receive profiles in real time as we process them. There is no limit to the size of Twitter account that you can pull through this API as long as you have sufficient records available in your account and larger accounts will take more time to process.

Built for developers.

Our API is built by developers, for developers. We have even written a number of client libraries in popular languages to help you get started.

*Please note that not all fields on Twitter are compulsory for the account holder to complete, so our API will not always be able to provide complete data for all the fields. You cannot export email addresses of Twitter followers using our API as Twitter does not provide this information.

**Please note that monthly subscriptions that have been paid will not be refunded wholly or in part, on cancellation or downgrading but will terminate at the end of that month to which they apply.
