  1. 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 ?

  2. 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

  3. API to report abuse/inappropriate content

    I suggest that the report features extend to API users. Report abuse is only available for individuals who get exposed to, click, and decide to report a tweet/account.

    A lot of inappropriate content is unfortunately on twitter. Perhaps I could categorize into 4 types:
    (1) inappropriate language: hate speech, harassment (bullying, sexual harassment)
    (2) inappropriate image: pornography, graphic violence
    (3) intention for inappropriate and harmful activities: intention to commit a crime (shooting, bomb, individual or mass threats), sell inappropriate products and services (prostitution, drugs - not debating if it is illegal or not, but I think twitter shouldn't be the…

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ?

  6. Bookmark feature to improve organization

    Ability to categorize bookmarks and have a search bar included in that feature as well. This will permit users to access their favorite saved posts quicker and more efficiently. Organization is rooted in the most common reasons of dislike while utilizing social media applications, so with this tool you would be killing two birds with one stone. Simply by gaining attention from current and new users as well to compete with other applications while getting rid of this nuisance.

  8. Allow access to DM group conversations via Twitter API

    Currently we can access 1on1 DM via Twitter API but not group conversations. If we forcibly set the group's conversation_id, Twitter API returns forbidden. Allow this.

  9. Twitter should provide more granular app permissions

    Twitter currently offers three levels of app permissions: (1) read only; (2) read and write; (3) read, write and access Direct Messages. These options are not granular enough for some developers, and developers would like more options to choose from.

    For example, an app’s “write” permission could be segmented into more granular options: (1) write access to a user’s profile; (2) write access to a user’s network (follow/unfollow, mute, block, list modification); (3) write access to a user’s timeline, including the permission to Tweet, Retweet, or like a post.

    Another example includes Sign In With Twitter: there could be an…

  10. Split personal pictures and memes in media

    Can be interesting to split in two the type of medias in user profiles.
    1/ Personal pictures of the user (where he is tagged)
    2/ All the rest (gif, memes, etc.)
    Currently it's a little bit messy when you want to check the medias of a user.

  11. Poll with images

    It's a pity to not be able to create a poll providing images on the same tweet. Why not adding it, like you did for retweet few years ago ?

  12. Control scope of tweets individually

    The evolution of this week was really interesting, but I would go further and like Facebook, let the user decides WHO can see a tweet (everybody, only my followers, our only the mentioned users).

  13. Integration of twitter login flow for mobile apps and websites

    A lab for building a simple login flow using the REST API and HTTP headers would do us a world of good. Detailed steps with how to build structured messages (I am aware that this is documented in fair detail but a lab form would additionally help us test our individual solutions as well) along with reference implementation and standard value outputs against which bespoke solutions can be tested. Along with the above a list of reference implementations for various languages such as Javascript, Java, Python would help as well. I am still stuck at Twitter login and am struggling…

  14. Build a conversation updates API

    I would like to recommend building a conversations API that enables developers to track updates to full conversation threads. This API would retrieve the entire conversation that a Tweet is in, and return all Tweets and replies within a given thread. This API would enable developers to go from a Tweet of interest to all replies in the thread, without having to recursively search for Tweets with the correct "inreplytostatusid".

  15. Add an Endpoint for Aggregate Video Metrics Across Tweets

    It would be really helpful to have an analytics endpoint in which the entity was a media ID (in my case a video ID) and you could request engagement & video metrics aggregated at the video level, even if that video appeared across many different tweets. Right now this is possible through the Engagement API for video views only, but it would be great if it were available through the Ads API & included seconds/minutes viewed, percentile completions, call to action clicks, etc.

  17. Add an Ask a Question feature, with allowed anonimity

    Already used through third-parties, an Asking feature would allow a new channel for interaction between users, with possible permission control such as ""follows/mutual followers only".

  18. Search bar for your individual timeline

    Implementing a search bar solely for your timeline will save users from wasting time trying to remember tweets when they refresh the app. Instead of having to scroll down, search for the tweet with words that are constantly used in the atmosphere, and for those that may have forgotten to bookmark it immediately upon sight.

  19. Build an API to manage polls and poll results

    Having access to an API for Twitter native polls would enable developers to create and schedule polls, as well as get back engagement data such as impressions, responses, Retweets of the poll, and their resulting responses, reach, and total engagement.

  20. First Tweet containing a hashtag

    Surface is the first tweet in the hashtag, to know the founder of the hashtag, it is his right; and also there are those who use the hashtag for no purpose intended for topic of the hashtag (no objection to it), but you are tired to reach the news for which the hashtag was founded due to the large number of tweets outside the same topic.
