Which APIs are the most popular with developers? There are a lot of ways to come to an answer; this month we are using our directory data to offer one. Every API in our directory has a track functionality and by looking at the data we can see which APIs our readers have shown the most interest in.
Twitter has announced that the company is unifying its API platform so that it’s hopefully easier for developer to build scalable Twitter-powered applications and is opening access to several new Direct Message APIs. A new beta Account Activity API and several new endpoints are available today.
