StatusNet sites all have a built-in Twitter-style API. For developers who are familiar with Twitter, it’s pretty easy to get started with StatusNet’s API. Many applications have even been converted to work with StatusNet by simply doing a string replace on the root of the API URLs (replacing “twitter.com” with “statusnet.site/api”). We support most of Twitter’s core API, but also have some additional methods to support unique StatusNet functionality such as groups and private instances. We also support a slew of other ways for getting data in and out of StatusNet, such as OStatus, XMPP, FOAF, RDFa, microformats and more.
