Welcome to the NewsWhip Developer Hub!

NewsWhip APIs give you raw access to the world’s largest and fastest human engagement database; real time data trends, aggregated data, statistics, and social engagement metrics for hundreds of millions of stories, tracked since January 1, 2014.

Use the power of NewsWhip data to create and customize your own solutions, perfectly suited to your company’s goals. In the hub you'll find the information you need to be successful with our API.


All NewsWhip API endpoints require an API key. Each API key is unique to your account, and grants access to the API.

Your API key must be passed with each GET or POST request as a Query String. For example:

GET /v1/region/U.S./Politics/24?key=YOUR_API_KEY
POST /v1/articles?key=YOUR_API_KEY



Your API key should be treated as a password. It should be kept secret at all times.
