I have become obsessed with cool and unusual web APIs, especially those that interact with the real world (read or write). Help me find some more. [more inside]
I'm looking to start a prototype research project to look for trends in Twitter data. I've had a look through the API docs and with a lot of sharpening my python chops (?) I think it does what I want. But: does the API give me access to every query possible and I just have to learn how to use it, or is there some kind premium API so that e.g. analytics companies can pay for better access? I know about the API call limit, I'm wondering about things like the completeness of any search results, or fields/queries available. Any recommended resources also much appreciated.
I want my tumblr 'likes' to be readable via RSS. Tumblr does allow you to export your data (including 'likes') by xml or json via their API. Unfortunately I have no clue how to get started and would appreciate any help. Thanks.
