This is a minimal PHP implementation of the CrowdTangle API. It contains a subset of the methods available. I am open to PRs that add extra methods to the client.

Here are a few examples on how you can use the package:

$client = new ChrisHardie\CrowdtangleApi\Client($accessToken);

// get lists

// get accounts in a list

// get posts
    'accounts' => '12345678',
    'startDate' => '2022-03-01',

// get a single post

View the full CrowdTangle API Documentation for details on available parameters and syntax.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require chrishardie/crowdtangle-api


Here are the API methods currently supported:

  • getLists() - Retrieve the lists, saved searches and saved post lists for an account
  • getAccountsForList($listId, $parameters, $maxRecords) - Retrieve the accounts for a given list
  • getPosts($parameters, $maxRecords) - Retrieve a set of posts for the given parameters
  • getPost($postId) - Retrieves a specific post

In most cases the library is simply passing the required arguments to the CrowdTangle API.

In the case of methods that support pagination (currently, getAccountsForList() and getPosts()), by default this library will attempt to retrieve all records on all pages, 100 at a time up to 1000 maximum. You can change this by passing a lower value for $maxRecords. Note that CrowdTangle API throttling limits may apply.
