# Twitter API

* [Home](help)

  • [Using the APIs](help/api)

## Overview

Friendica provides the following endpoints defined in the [official Twitter API reference](https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/api-reference-index).

Authentication is the same as described in [Using the APIs](help/api#Authentication).

## Entities

These endpoints use the [Friendica API entities](help/API-Entities).

## Different behaviour

* `screen_name`: The nick name in Friendica is only unique in each network but not for all networks. The users are searched in the following priority: Friendica, StatusNet/GNU Social, Diaspora, pump.io, Twitter. If no contact was found by this way, then the first contact is taken. * `include_entities`: Default is “false”. If set to “true” then the plain text is formatted so that links are having descriptions.

## Friendica-specific return values

* `cid`: Contact id of the user (important for “contact_allow” and “contact_deny”) * `network`: network of the user

## Unsupported parameters

* `cursor` * `trim_user` * `contributor_details` * `place_id` * `display_coordinates` * `include_rts`: To-Do * `include_my_retweet`: Retweets in Friendica are implemented in a different way
