# Tweetstorm - Tweets to Markdown
This is a really simple API requested by [Patrick McKenzie (@patio11)](https://twitter.com/patio11)
on Twitter. Link to request [here](https://twitter.com/patio11/status/1014743319044190208).
The API takes two parameters, `id` and `name` and outputs a Markdown
document tracing back an entire Tweetstorm (or reply thread) to its
`id` can be a Twitter tweet ID or just a link to the tweet itself.
Note that URLs and @ mentions will be linked to the appropriate document /
user, lines are truncated at a max of 80 characters long (given a space exists appropriately),
and non-parent user replies are indicated (if a tweetstorm or reply thread contains a
tweet from somebody else).
