#GraphQL saved me last night. Thread!
Tried picking the winners for yesterday’s giveaway, but about 3/4 folks tweeted at the same time, 11:12 a.m. Ah, but I need one winner.https://t.co/mglOJU9v7Z & the client apps I use don’t show the “seconds” part of a tweet. 🤔
Just the hours & minute a tweet was created. As a programmer, I immediately thought of checking out Twitter’s REST API to determine the complete timestamp of those tweets.
However, this process will require me to create a new app on https://t.co/Lhee3NoAbs, get access tokens &
secret. I’d need consumer key & secret too. Boy oh boy, I simply need to get a winner, I’m not trying to build a twitter client for Christ’s sake.
Me: What’s the simplest way to get this done? 😬🙄
Me to me: 🤔 Is there a #GraphQL API for Twitter somewhere in Developer land?
