Successfully Apply to access Twitter APIs

As of July 2018, you must now apply for a Twitter developer account and be approved before you can create any new apps. All new developers must apply for a developer account to access Twitter APIs. Once approved, you can begin to use Twitters standard APIs and new premium APIs.

We found applying for personal access with our script is the most straightforward approach. We do have a 90% success rate although access is not guaranteed and it is down to the individual’s app purposes, so we are not responsible for application rejections.

RealSocialSEO Software Tip-off

Unfollow Twitter

SocialBee is one of the widely popular social media management tools. This tool is mostly used by professionals to manage their social media accounts and Twitter accounts.

If your application fails, as of July 2019 there is no method to re-apply for access.

Firstly your account must have a valid phone number and verify it prior to applying for developer access.

Secondly, choose ‘I am requesting access from my own personal use’, then fill out all the details about yourself and the purpose of your app. (See below)

The main point is to open and honest, but the app you intend to build must sit within Twitter’s policies (Read the Restricted Use Cases)

*Additionally, your product, service, or analysis should not be used to provide Twitter content or derived information available to government entities

Updated July 2019

  1. Go to Create an app on the Twitter Developer site. You may need to login normally using your Twitter username and password.
  2. Click “Create an app”.
  3. Follow the instructions, select your primary reason for using Twitter developer tools (We chose “Making a Bot”)
  4. Fill out the required information (this is just one of the steps).
  5. Agree to the Terms

Answer each question even if the answer is “not applicable”. For example: “My solution will not…”

We find the text below works because it is simple and clear, but do change it to meet your own requirements, and be sure it is easy to read and understand.

Good Luck… we hope this Helps!

*If unable to successfully create a developer account access, we might have a spare account or 2 to sell. If interested please do contact us.

      I don’t believe there is a way to have your application reviewed. When it’s declined you have no options which is not very good by Twitter.

      Were both your applications identical? Try change it around a little. Make sure you don’t be overly honest with what your app will do…ie don’t have it breaking Twitter policies

    What do you do when your account has been denied but you need the API key to embed the timeline on your company website homepage?

    Hello, your post sounds quite optimistic, but it seems that Twitter is gradually tightening its policies. The restricted use cases are not very informative, and of course Twitter will never give a reason why they decline an application. So I would really appreciate if you could reiterate your test and give some more precise info about what to write and what not to write.

      I had another account approved this morning. It’s by far easier to fill out the questionnaire now. I used the same script but only one part of it due to they new layout of questions. I was able to set the no option to all the questions except one. I will however need to update this blog to reflect the changes in the application process
