Like other social media, the Twitter platform also exposes its own API to enable developers to access their functionalities and integrate their features into applications.
Now we have briefly look how to get the official Twitter API key.
At first, you should sign up for a developer account. Then you will create a project and an associated developer app. After you have access, you will be able to find or generate the credentials within your developer app. The first one is the API key and secret. The next is user access tokens which represent the app owner. If you would like to make requests on behalf of another user, you will need to use another flow for them to authorize you. And last but not least is the app access token to request an endpoint.
You should note that your keys and tokens will only display once in the developer portal, so it is principal to keep these credentials safe as soon as you develop them. Because if you lose or forget the keys and tokens, you will need to recreate them, which generates new Twitter API credentials and invalidates the previous ones. So, you will have to update any integrations that you may have set up with your prior credentials.
