I am wanting to get started with using web api and write a web api app using Visual Studio 2017 in order to call a url and return json data , using Get.
I want to be able to serialize and deserialize and format the data.
Is there a public url that I can connect to and get the data ?

It"s a bit unclear if you are looking for https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/web-api/overview/getting-started-with-aspnet-web-api/tutorial-your-first-web-api or
for services with which you could "play" ('seems anyway your intent is to create your own service).
If before writing your own you want to try to consume services found at https://www.geonames.org/(and maybe they could be even useful in your app)

This is great. But instead of initializing the products and adding 3 new elements , how can i call a public url / consume a public service like maybe twitter , google apis available to public which will return json data
The first step is reading the Google and Twitter support docs. The usual path is creating a developer account. Use the account to login which results is a token being returned. Use the token to interact with the service.
