Private API

Botometer (formerly Truthy BotOrNot) checks the activity of a Twitter account and gives it a score based on how likely the account is to be a bot. Higher scores are more bot-like.

  • Ratelimits fixed

    published 9 months ago

    Our API is designed to provide 17,280 requests per day, per user, under the free tier [1]. A bug was causing some users to unexpectedly low ratelimits for the last several days. This issue has been fixed. Thanks to the users that brought this issue to our attention! As always, please let us know if you continue to have problems.

    [1]: This is the same as the Twitter user-authenticated API ratelimit of 180 requests per 15-minute window.

  • We're free again!

    Recently, we added a freemium subscription tier to this API in order to support customers who wanted to pay for elevated access. Consequently, and unexpectedly for us, Mashape started requiring credit cards for all users of our API. We've reverted back to only having a free tier for this API, and we'll add a differently named but functionally identical API on Mashape Marketplace for those who want a the freemium product.

    Thanks for understanding, Clayton (@clayadavis)
