  1. API endpoint for reporting counterfeit digital goods

    Please add an API endpoint for reporting accounts that are selling counterfeit digital goods. Hundreds of accounts are selling Netflix accounts, Spotify, and more. Just search "Netflix Premium Account" and see what I'm referring to. Why is this permitted? Can you please offer more through the API so we can help stop this?

  2. Display to the user the day of the month the Tweet counter resets.

    I recently hit my monthly cap on the number of Tweets I consumed. I understand that this counter will reset on the day of the month I first enrolled for Labs. I can not find that date anywhere in the Labs UI. Please show me that date!

  3. Add Moments API

    I was trying to summarize a conference in a moment with over 64 tweets. Trying to organize those manually moving them up and down 1-by-1 on the site was a pain (as many people tweet things not quite in chronological order of the conference or if you sorted once and want to add more later, it's hard).

    It'd be great to expose the API for creating/editing moments so that other tools could help push the experience of capturing events or help to correlate topics and insert into proper places.

  4. Be able to get all the retweeters ids instead of the last 100 only

    It would be useful to be able to retrieve more than 100 results calling GET statuses/retweeters/ids
    The current limitation doesn't make sense.

  5. Richer Direct Messaging API to enable creating more powerful BOTs

    To enable a truly rich bot experience on Twitter, the API is missing things like:
    - Cards message type (image + text + buttons +swipe left/right)
    - Buttons and menus as part of message (not only Quick Replies)
    - A more integrated webview, that is an integral part of the bot experience (for example the bot sends a "pick your seat" button which opens a small size web widget right in the chat to pick the seat, and then goes back to the main chat bot flow)
    And most important:
    the fixed limit of 15k DM regardless of number of…

  6. Build a more accessible version of the engagement metrics API

    Twitter could build a more affordable version of the enterprise Engagement API, which would provide developers with Tweet metrics for owned Tweets.

    Engagement data returned by the API includes number of Likes, Retweets, replies, impressions, and engagements (for example, number of link clicks). This API would enable developers to better understand their reach and impact on Twitter.

  9. Add premium endpoints for the following/followers endpoints

    At www.contexto.io and www.graphext.com we provide our customers the possibility of mapping and expanding Twitter communities leveraging the social graph. This allows us to get really contextual, relevant and different insights that most social media analytics tools offer (they mostly count keywords that matches a boolean query).

    We currently use the free API following/followers endpoints for this right now but with the new policy starting this month we cannot make more than 100K requests/day which prevent us from scaling our product. We would be very happy to pay for a premium endpoint like this!

  10. Fully adopt OAuth 2.0

    I would like the Twitter API to use OAuth 2.0 instead of OAuth 1.0. OAuth1.0a is fairly specific to the Twitter APIs at this point in time. It's complicated to implement, and there is a dwindling number of developer tools that support it. OAuth 2.0 is less complicated and easier to build into an app than OAuth 1.0.

  11. Allow API access to tweet analytics CSVs

    Specifically, some kind of way to download the csvs produced by exporting https://analytics.twitter.com/user/[INSERT DATA]/tweets given OAuth read (or even read/write) scope would be really useful

  12. Bypass "sign in with twitter" when using browser embedded in native Twitter app

    If you are using a native Twitter app such as the Twitter app on Android, if you click on a link to a website, which uses "sign in with twitter" to authenticate the user, the user is forced to login again, even though they are already authenticated with Twitter in the native app.

    In a perfect world this secondary sign in would not be necessary, and would reduce a lot of friction.

  13. Twitter follow/unfollow Limits

    Hi, I'd love for twitter to readjust the current Follow/unfollow Limits currently set for each app.. we understand these limits are being set to eliminate spam activities on twitter but there should be an exclusion to this rule. for example there could be restrictions as to who can be followed or unfollowed (spammed) by the app/service and this should be limited to only those that use the same service/app reason being that the users already know what they're getting into. the funny thing is - users already know how to do these these without even using a 3rd party service.…

  14. Tweet translation should be available through the API

    Build a new request operator that can be included in an API request, and returns a translation of the Tweet text in the Tweet payload. Supported languages should be the same languages that are supported by the "lang:" request operator.

  15. Show app developer profile on app authorization screen

    The app authorization screen that shows up whenever a user is authorizing / logging in using twitter with a twitter app for the first time should also display the app owner twitter account. Like a "Made by: @TwitterAPI ..." box

    As a user, I find it reassuring to see that an app developer has an active presence on Twitter, and as a developer, i'd like to be open about the app purpose and ownership.

    eg: https://developer.twitter.com/content/dam/developer-twitter/images/ScreenShot2015-03-20-authorize-card.png this screen should contain something like the profile popup displaying Name, screen_name, description, whether the account follows me and "Followed by ...…

  16. Provide an SLA

    Describe the level commitment (and dedication) to APIs.

    What are the thresholds for usage & overall sunsetting of service?

    What criteria will be used to make significant changes?
