Since November 2010, Twitter use the snowflake ID system to guarantee identifier unicity.
It is composed with 42 bits of milliseconds timestamp, and 22 other bits of machine/worker identifiers and an internal counter.
With this package, you can simply extract the date contained in those type of IDs.
Install it using npm.
npm i twitter-snowflake-to-date
One function is exported. You can import it with its name or with default import.
;// OR with named import //;// OR with require //;;; // Date(2020-02-27T22:46:45.564Z)
Note: Twitter uses snowflakes IDs since November 2010 only.
Every given tweet ID that is not a snowflake will return
You can easily check if tweet ID is a snowflake by checking its length. A
length > 13 ensure you have a snowflake ID.
