  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. 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…

  3. Provide Users With More Options for Organization

    Notifications appear in time order, which is fine. It can, however, become very disorganized quickly! This is particularly true when multiple users are replying. There are times when I don't want these messages, but there's no effective way to remove them. If one of the tweets in your notifications becomes popular, it can make finding other content a harrowing experience. (I've tried muting a user, the conversation and phrases, the messages still get through). There's a simple fix for these issues. First, give the user the option to delete a notice. Secondly, while notices can continue to be grouped in…

  4. Make custom lists more powerful

    The current list management is good to keep for example our "best friends" in one place, but the usage behind it is really limited.
    Why not allow several filters in the home page (not in another menu) to display only the tweets of a selected list, and give the possibility to exclude retweets of other users ? It will be useful to follow several persons in priority when you follow too many people.

  5. Contact Tab

    Being able to place your contact information in a tab within your bio. Great for networking and leaving space for more details in your bio in general.

  7. Feature Request Web Intent DM on Apps

    Hi! I hope this is the right place to ask a bit feature request for the apps.

    I build a chat bot and sending CTAs to give example to user how to write some comands on DM (for example: /subscribe #asia, /unsubscribe #asia)

    by using Twitter Web Intent of DM
    (e.g: https://twitter.com/messages/compose?recipient_id=123456789&text=/subscribe%20#asia).

    It works great, but I have some inconvenience because on Android App, when user click on the Button, the app open new Android Fragment of DM activities to the same bot.

    Thanks!

  8. historical trending topics

    Is it possible to get historical trending topics by location, time, and topic category? For example, can we have an API that outputs the top 10 trending business topics in U.S. on certain dates. This will help researchers study and monitor trending topics.

  10. Retweet while limited

    When you retweet, it doesn’t go through as normal function under your three day limit. When you do retweet, however, if it doesn’t show up under your recents it will still show retweeted. If you want to retweet it you have to reload the app. Being able to press retweet and if it doesn’t go through continue to scroll or if it does but when you press undo retweet it still stays green. This is one of those bugs that could be fixed in a matter of time, so here’s my suggestion.

  11. Search bar account connection

    In the search bar, when you type a letter in you come across accounts that follow you. That feature should include accounts you follow in general as well. Shows mutual connections on there as well as everyone you follow for more suggestions and efficiency.

  13. 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".

  14. 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?

  15. 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!
