Twick.it is a user-driven explanation engine. Twick.it users provide short (140 characters or less) explanations, or 'twicks' of any one concept/idea and other users can rate the explanation, thereby creating intelligible, precise, up-to-date and entertaining 'twicks'. The Twick.it API is a RESTful API that allows users and developers to access the Twick.it data in their own applications. Methods are limited to 'read-only' methods; searching, viewing twicks, viewing statistics. There are no API methods to publish twicks.
