Introducing a field guide to Twitter platform objects

Thursday, 3 May 2012

The earliest adopters of the Twitter platform arrived with a firm understanding of our service and the objects that represented the various nouns and verbs that describe Twitter’s capabilities and opportunity. The platform has grown considerably since and now developers of all levels of familiarity and experience are getting started with the Twitter API.

Inspired by James Audubon’s 1831 landmark the Birds of America, we’ve created our own “Field Guide” to the most frequently encountered wild objects encountered on the platform.

We hope you find the guide useful “out in the field” and beyond.
