Washington: Louisiana governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal on Wednesday jumped into the 2016 White House race with a twitter message making him the first Indian-American and 13th Republican candidate to do so.
“I’m running for President of the United States of America. Join me: http://www.bobbyjindal.com/announcement,” he tweeted shortly after noon ahead of a planned formal announcement in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner Wednesday evening.
“A Special Announcement From Bobby Jindal. My name is Bobby Jindal, and I am running for President of the United States of America. There were three people I think you would agree my wife Supriya and I had to tell first,” said a second tweet.
Jindal’s tweet came shortly adviser Curt Anderson told reporters at a morning briefing: “We get into the race at 5 o’clock tonight.”
A hidden-camera style video of the governor telling his kids about his decision to run followed.
His daughter quickly leveraged the information, requesting a puppy as her share of the deal.
“OK, if we move into the White House, you can have a puppy,” Jindal told his daughter.
It will help developers build a business with the micro blogging site
The company has launched three types of APIs
Twitter has launched “premium full-archive search endpoint”, a premium product for developers that will provide them access to the full Twitter archive, including the first tweet from its CEO Jack Dorsey in 2016.
Starting Friday, the full archive search endpoint is available in beta for the developers’ community.
This is the first time that this data is available outside of site’s enterprise application programming interface (API), the company said in a statement.
“Like the premium 30-day search endpoint, we want to give you greater access to Twitter history, and we want to make it easy to innovate and to grow your solution,” the micro-blogging platform added.
The “premium APIs” can serve as “standard (free and public) APIs” that provide basic query functionality and foundational access to Twitter data and “enterprise APIs” (subscription-based), which deliver real-time and historical data to power businesses at scale. IANS
