  1. Twitter Profile Handle Actions

    Twitter Handles as Profile Image instead of spelt out handles that perform actions.

    In twitter Compose a user begins to type out a users handle, like @Apple but instead of @Apple the Profile Image for @Apple shows instead . Like an emoji. This reduces character count in tweets the full handle is a single handle profile handle image.

    The tweet to the receiver is to many mentioned handles has profile handles profile images instead of spelt out full @TwitterHandles

    The actions to @Handles can the be executed in various ways. The receiver can single tap a Profile Handle Image to…

  2. Control videos and voice notes speed

    Giving users the ability to control the speed of videos and voice notes, by adding button or something like this.
    it makes listening more comfortable especially if the speeker was speaking slowly.

  3. The ability to unlike tweets from private accounts

    Please give us an option to be able to unlike tweets from private accounts. Facebook have given their users an option to unlike posts from private accounts and posts from blocked accounts using the activity log. It does not violate anyone’s privacy as you cannot see the posts in your activity log, it just informs you that you liked a post and allows you to unlike it. I please request the same option to be available on Twitter. It takes a very long while to post all of your tweets and photos to a new account and try to figure…

  5. Twitter Ratings

    I have an idea for Twitter Ratings.
    The idea is to simplify what people are saying on Twitter instead of having to read through all the tweets.

    How it would work would be if you send out a tweet about a movie, Twitter will then ask you what you would rate the movie on a scale of 1-5 star rating. Then Twitter will use this information and display the results of everyones rating at the top of the search results of the given movie.

    This could work for TV Shows, Movies, and even Consumer Products.

    Considering Netflix has no rating…

  6. Please give us the option to remove followers

    Instagram have recently given users the ability to remove followers instead of blocking them to remove them. I please request that Twitter also give us this option and not notify the users they have been removed from following us.

  8. Support non-public metrics via OAuth 2.0 for the Labs v2 'Tweets and Users' endpoint

    With API v2 (Labs v2) launching last week, it seems incredible that some endpoints still require the use of oAuth 1.0 which is scarcely supported. This makes developing for the 'next gen' API feel surprisingly primitive - and is an accessibility barrier that is unique in the sophisticated landscape of 2020.

  9. Search Users based on Emoji

    Emoji search is working fine for tweets, but not for user search.

  10. GET statuses/likers/ids endpoint

    Why don't we have the same kind of statuses/retweeters/ids endpoint but for likes, in order to get all the user ids who liked a particular tweet ?

    acknowledged  ·  Aurelia Specker responded

    Thanks for the request & details. We don’t yet have plans to address this, but I have shared your request with the Product team for future consideration.

  11. Endpoint or method to return account(s) current standing (eg. suspended, deactivated, deleted etc)

    This would be desirable for research into both active & historical fake & disinfo accounts. Academics might also like it

    Description

    An endpoint or method that returns whether accounts has been renamed, suspended, deactivated or deleted, for both a single account and a list of accounts.

    We should be able to pass in either screenname or id or idstr, or lists thereof.

    Return an appropriately detailed JSON object.

    We can currently only establish if an account is suspended by attempting a GET user/show & then parsing the error response codes.

    Rationale

    It used to be possible to do…

  12. Add endpoints for muted keywords

    We need a way to manage muted keywords, similar to the existing endpoints for muted users:

    GET mutes/keywords/list
    POST mutes/keywords/create
    POST mutes/keywords/destroy

  13. Release from 3 day limit alert

    Giving us an alert when we are off our 3 day limit, because you guys give us one when we’re put on it but not when released from it.

  14. Button to see poll result

    Really often, people on Twitter define a choice on their poll just to let people not concerned see the result. Why not providing a simple button to let anybody see the result without having to choose an answer ?

  15. historize likes

    Currently a like given by a user is not related to a date in the API.
    Having this info can be useful to analyze the "likes activity" of a user on the past X days for example.

  16. Build an API to create and retrieve Tweet threads

    Tweet threads have become increasingly popular over the past few years. This API would enable developers to tap into the potential of threads by programmatically creating threads, as well as retrieving all Tweets in a thread.

  17. API response should contain descriptive error messages for actions that are forbidden

    When I try to hide a Tweet in a thread that wasn’t started by the authenticating user, I get the response:

    (
    [title] => Forbidden
    [type] => about:blank
    [status] => 403
    [detail] => Forbidden
    )

    I understand that this action should actually be forbidden, but the error in the API response doesn't tell me why the action is forbidden (which is that the authenticating user is trying to hide a Tweet in a thread that wasn't started by the authenticating user)

  18. Get archive data through API

    Why couldn't we get our own data archive through API calls ?
    Instead of having to download the whole archive (which is really heavy), it can be interesting to have several endpoints where we could request all the data between two dates for the authenticated user.

  19. "Followers you know" in Get labs/2/users expansions

    In the app or on the web, we can access to the list of "Followers you know" of another user. It could be nice to have this information in expansions too.

  20. Use cases for the ability to limit who can reply to a Tweet in the API

    The API should support limiting who can reply to a Tweet when Tweeting using POST statuses/update. This could be useful for publishing tools that can be used to schedule and publish Tweets across different accounts (e.g. a brand account in multiple languages).

    What are other use cases where you would want to limit who can reply to a Tweet through the API?
