The analytic conformal bootstrap offers new possibilities of studying conformal field theories using the crossing equation and consistency conditions. We present the recent method of using twist conformal blocks to study the high spin asymptotics of CFT data. We apply the method to weakly coupled gauge theories and derive the most general form of the one-loop four-point correlator without referring to the usual Feynman approach. It enables us to recover known correlators from the N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory.
