API Description
Create markdown documents from tweets with ease
# 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 initial parent. `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). Enjoy!
Takes a Tweet ID (or URL) and a name for your Tweetstorm and outputs a Markdown document (plaintext)
