Currently this isn't possible as an open-source instant answer because Twitter's API requires OAuth for authenticated API calls and the Spice system does not support that.

Maybe use this source instead: https://discover.twitter.com/first-tweet...

As far as I can tell, there doesn't seem to be a way to get JSON data for that page. Spice IAs require a JSON or JSONP endpoint to get the data.

Can we get in contact with twitter to allow us use their api in our way. I dont see why would they reject such a offer.

I really don't think they're going to make an exception for us. Previously, their API allowed for request without OAuth tokens, but a few years ago they made a big change and now all API endpoints require OAuth.

This is an issue the DuckDuckGo needs to solve, so that Spices can work with authenticated APIs. However, this isn't a serious problem for us, because most API's still don't require OAuth tokens and so it's likely something we'll resolve down the road.
