Hey Developers,

We recently reviewed a sample of your API requests, emails and support
tickets and found that some of you were not using the correct domains.

While undocumented domains and endpoints may respond with data, you should
avoid using them as they may be disabled or changed without notice.

Our network infrastructure is also updated from time to time. These changes
are required for capacity planning or load balancing, but are generally
transparent to you if you use the correct API host.

To avoid problems or outages with your applications you need to ensure you
are using the correct hosts (and base paths) for the Twitter API you want to
use. Even if your code is working now, you should check the hosts match
those listed below:

REST API:
    http://api.twitter.com/1/....RESOURCE....
OAuth:
    http://api.twitter.com/oauth/....RESOURCE....
Streaming (Track):
    http://stream.twitter.com/1/....RESOURCE....
Userstreams:
    http://userstream.twitter.com/2/user.json
SiteStreams Beta:
    http://betastream.twitter.com/2b/site.json
Search:
    http://search.twitter.com/search.json
Tweet Button:
    http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
@anywhere:
    http://platform.twitter.com/anywhere.js
Web Widgets:
    http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.js

Some common errors include:
    * Incorrectly using http://twitter.com instead of
http://api.twitter.com/1/
    * Incorrectly using requests like
http://api.twitter.com/account/verify_credentials.json instead of
http://api.twitter.com/1/account/verify_credentials.json
    * Incorrectly directing users to
http://twitter.com/oauth/authorizeinstead of
http://api.twitter.com/oauth/authorize
    * Incorrectly querying http://199.16.156.11/search.json instead of
http://search.twitter.com/search.json

You can find the documented endpoints on our developer resources site:
