Twitter API v2, the overhaul of the social network’s application-programming interface that was originally revealed July 16, was officially rolled out Wednesday.

The original plan was to roll out the first set of endpoints on the day Twitter released all the information about the first significant update to its API since 2012, but that was put on hold by a July 15 security breach that impacted several high-profile accounts.

Twitter said its teams used the additional time to add functionality to Twitter API v2, making it easier for developers to connect existing apps via the social network’s developer portal so they can get started immediately.

Developer applications that were already in Twitter’s queue were also reviewed to improve the experience for new developers who apply starting Wednesday.
