Twitter announced the relaunch of its developer conference, Chirp Developer Conference & Challenge, as part of its efforts to lure developers back to its platform.
The Developer Conference and Challenge scheduled for November 16th, 2022 in San Francisco will bring together developers and members of the Twitter team to discuss the newest initiatives, share ideas, and answer crucial technical questions.
During the relaunch, Twitter will also host its Chirp Developer Challenge, allowing developers to submit their most intriguing, imaginative, and creative uses of Twitter’s API for USD $500,000+ in prizes to be won.
The Midway in San Francisco, California will host Chirp 2022 on November 16. The physical and online event will feature a keynote speech and technical presentations on community building using Twitter API v2. Questions and answers with the Twitter Developer Platform team.
The Chirp Developer Challenge debuts in Chirp 2022 as well. Three categories — Content Discovery tools, Conversation Safety tools, and Public Good tools—will each receive prizes for the finest applications of the Twitter API v2 in the challenge.
Content Discovery Apps
Help people discover content such as Lists, Spaces, Bookmarks, or Tweets, on Twitter. We have built an open platform that allows you to give people more opportunities to discover content that’s relevant to them. While we built some discovery experiences ourselves (such as the Explore tab for Spaces), people will benefit from alternative discovery mechanisms that can complement ours or be an alternative to them.
Another element of discovery is the ability to create different perspectives of the public conversation. Our products enable you to build ways to filter content by a particular set of rules (for example, a specific topic), or to only surface content in a particular context (such as time of day).
You can build tools to show relevant content based on those circumstances, such as apps that surface work-related content during the week, and fun content during the weekend.
Conversation Safety Tools
Help people feel safer on Twitter. We want everyone to feel comfortable, safe, and excited to participate in the conversation on Twitter. We’ve worked hard to offer tools that give people more control over their experience, like Tweet reply settings, blocks, and mutes.
However, there will always be more work to do, and we want to encourage you to build complementary or additive solutions that help improve the health and safety of the platform. For instance, apps that actively limit the content you don’t want to see/experience. Or filter unwanted content, mentions, and/or profiles.
Public Good Apps
Connect to real-world issues, supporting people outside of the Twitter experience. We want to bring communities closer during real-world events. Help people coordinate emergencies, tweet out vital information or help people find assistance when they need it.
Keep people safe and informed with tools to automatically share information like extreme weather updates, public health notices, distributing information in times of crisis and more.
