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.

A topic is a high level theme that describes the content of a particular feed that we track. For example, content that comes from BBC Sport is given the topic Sports.

To make your code less vulnerable to renaming of topics, each topic has an ID associated with it. This ID doesn't change. So, in the case of BBC Sport articles, they'll have the topic ID of 32.

The tables below allow you to look up the mapping of topics to IDs.
