When developers consume public Twitter data through our API, they need reliability, speed, and stability. Therefore, some time ago, we launched the Account Activity Replay API for the Account Activity API to let developers bake stability into their systems. The Account Activity Replay API is a data recovery tool that lets developers retrieve events from as far back as five days. This API recovers events that weren’t delivered for various reasons, including inadvertent server outages during real-time delivery attempts.
In addition to building APIs that will provide a positive developer experience, we also optimize for:
- Increasing the productivity of our engineers.
- Keeping the system easy to maintain. Specifically, we try to minimize context switching for developers, site reliability engineers, and anyone else who interacts with the system.
