Twitter Developersの登録で詰まった話

ホームページを作る必要性が出てきたので、とりあえずtwitter系のなんか表示とかで使うよね?ってことで久しぶりにTwitter Developersのページにいってみるとなんだか使用目的とかいろいろ英語で送らないといけないかんじになってた。最低300文字は書けよ、などと親切にも文字数の制約が。昔はそんなのなくて手軽にTwitter API使えたのになあ...

といっても仕方がないので適当に書いて送信。たしかプログラミングのチカラをつけるとかウェブサイトで使うとか名前自動で変えるやつ作るってのを書いた。すぐにメールがくる。

Application under review.

そういえば審査ってどんくらいのレベルでやるんだ?と思って送信した後にいろいろ調べてみたらどうやら使用目的とかの審査が厳しいらしい。適当すぎて通らないのでは?しばらくしてメールがきた。

Thanks for applying for access!

ダメらしい。まあ想定はしてた。TOEFLitpスコア450の英語力が火を吹くぜ〜*1という感じで以下の文を送信。business purposeって商用利用のことか?とか思って最後に適当に文を追加したりした。

My purpose is to learn programing (mainly JavaScript, PHP and Python) with Twitter API. For example, I will display the count down of a test day at my own username, and get the images included in my tweet and in search results of specific words and show them in my webpage. Former:I need Twitter API when changing username automatically, and run such a program using IaaS. Latter:I need Twitter API when getting images included tweets using JavaScript and PHP. I intend to use them personally, not commercially.

 これくらい書けば通るのでは?と思ってたけど甘かったらしい。しばらくして再びメールがきた。

Thank you for your response.

 そうじゃないぞってnoteが入ってきた。そして最後の脅し「ちゃんと書かないと拒否るぞ〜〜〜」である。ひどいなあ。困ったので言い換えて中身を詳しく、noteがつけられたことにはできるだけ対応したつもりで以下の文を返信。

 

I have learned html, css, javascript, php and python. I have my own webpage(pota.xyz/top).I will improve my programing skill about such programming languages with using Twitter API. I will make the programs as follows:

  1. I will display the count down of a test day at my own username.
  2. I will get the images included in my tweet and in search results of specific words and show them in my webpage(pota.xyz/top). 

This is my purpose of using Twitter API. The concrete method is as follows:

  1. I will use python and run the program in Iaas(Google App Engine). I will get my user information by “GET users/show” and change my username automatically every 24 hours by “POST account/update_profile.”
  2. I will use javascript,php and python and run the program in my website(pota.xyz/top). I will show the images like the part of Top and Graffities of my websites(pota.xyz/top).I will use Standard search API. I will get images only include each tweets, not use the text of them.

I showed my purpose and the way of using Twitter API. I would appreciate it if you could approve my request.

 これで通らなかったら書くことに困るぞ〜とか思ってたけど、しばらくしたら承認しましたメールが!
