User Fetch API

This API provides access to user-specific data from FixTweet. It includes user-related information such as profile details, number of followers and tweets, etc.


This API was just added. While it is mostly stable, it may be subject to change without notice

User API Endpoint

screen_name - The screen name (@ handle) of the user.

Returns a JSON object. Here is a sample:

    "code": 200,
    "message": "OK",
    "user": {
        "url": "",
        "id": "783214",
        "followers": 65704781,
        "following": 0,
        "likes": 6130,
        "tweets": 15051,
        "name": "Twitter",
        "screen_name": "Twitter",
        "description": "What's happening?!",
        "location": "everywhere",
        "avatar_url": "",
        "joined": "Tue Feb 20 14:35:54 +0000 2007",
        "birthday": {
            "day": 21,
            "month": 3

If it’s successful, it will return 200 (message: OK), but can return 404 (message NOT_FOUND), or 500 (message API_FAIL)
