  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  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. 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.

  8. Sharing GIF from Code on iOS

    If I am not mistaken, GIF sharing on iOS is not working from the Gallery either. But my original request was for GIF sharing from code.

    I found this great plugin for Unity to share images. The author also was having problems with sharing GIF on some apps. In my opinion it should be supported by the apps, as it is impossible to write a comprehensive adaptation for every app around. As the author was having issues with GIFs not showing he fixed it by converting to a UIImage -> this loses the animation of a GIF.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. The Moments Feature on Twitter

    I loved the Moments feature on Twitter, it allowed me to organize my past tweets in a functional manner. There is nothing that really replaces it!!! Generally speaking, Twitter needs to offer users more options in terms of organizing their content. I vote to bring Moments back:)

  12. 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…

  13. Bookmark Folders

    The ‘bookmarks’ feature was an amazing addition, but many users have complained about how unorganized it can get. Many are pleading for the ‘folders’ feature to be added, so can they separate their save tweets based on preference. Adding this feature would make users’ experience on Twitter so much better.

  14. Hide Notifications Option

    Having the option to hide certain notifications off that feed. To hide specific accounts off your feed after they pop up so you don’t have to even view them.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
