Querying 3rd party channels using API


For academic research purposes I’m wondering whether I can use the API to query third-party channels (in a similar manner to how I can query Twitter). I’ve spent some time researching this but all the API info I’ve seen seems to refer to internal use by companies.

I was wondering if someone with experience of using the RC API can tell me whether authentication is required to access a public (ie third party, not my own) channel using the API?

Many thanks
