At this time, no. Sorry. In the future, we will reevaluate whether this call should have authentication.

This is great!

But could authentication be made optional? The original API (user/ show) isn't, and those who want to replace it might need to go through a lot of code changes...

hi all.

we launched an endpoint yesterday that allows you to fetch 20 users by user_id or by screen_name at a time -- we call this our "bulk user show" API. for example, to retrieve user objects for user IDs 12863272 , 3191321, 9160152, 8285392 and simultaneously screen names of rsarver and wilhelmbierbaum, put together the following authenticated request,3191321,9160152,8285392&screen_name=rsarver,wilhelmbierbaum

and you will receive an XML array of those six user objects.

you can find more documentation at .
