  1. 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?

  2. Make it easier to use multiple apps as different dev environments or clients for the same tool or service

    Allow me to group and label related Twitter apps like product / staging / development, or clients for different platforms, like iOS / Android for a piece of software, service, or mobile app I’m building. This would enable me to better organize my integration. Ideally, I’d manage my API access at the group level rather than for each app, for ease and consistency.

  3. Add a filter to return only currently promoted tweets

    Currently there is no way to only return promoted tweets. With a "filter:promoted" filter option, it would be possible to only return promoted tweets combined with other search terms.

    This feature would help researchers and increase ad transparency.

  5. 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.

  6. 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:)

  7. 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…

  8. Metric that indicates how many users have saved your tweet as a bookmark

    I think this metric is a unique way to gauge long-term engagement among users. Retweets can be likened to quick, instinctive reactions to content, but I think there is value in also providing users with measures that indicate more deliberative reactions (a good way to delineate these user behaviours can be best explained through 'System 1' vs 'System 2' thinking).

    For instance, suppose a professor tweets about a recently published academic paper. Whilst retweets provide insight into timely reactions, the academic might want to also keep track of other users who might potentially revisit/avail of their published content in the…

  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. Who to follow API

    Add an API version of the popular "Who to follow" link seen at lower right on the home page: https://twitter.com/<...>/whotofollow .
    (Currently it uses non-public APIs under the hood.)

  12. 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.

  14. Add "Public Interest" and "Manipulated Media" and other enforcement flags to tweet expansions

    It should be possible to get a value in expansions if tweets have the "Public Interest" and "Manipulated Media" flags set, along with any other enforcement - eg: withheld in country fields etc.

    For example, json flags or objects should be present for filtering tweets like this https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1266231100780744704 or https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1273770669214490626 that have had some flags set.

  15. Block refinement

    Block refinement. At the moment valid, informed discussion on the platform is hampered by the ability of users to block people who disagree with their views. Users should absolutely be able to block other users who are abusive/bullying etc, but not if they are sincerely communicating a difference of opinion, especially if that opinion is backed up with data/information. Twitter's main goal is to "serve the public conversation" and it is failing to this. Twitter at the moment makes it too easy for extremists and conspiracy-theorists to exist in an echo-chamber, only hearing what they want to hear. For a…

  16. 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…

  18. 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.
