  1. Data Fixtures for Twitter API's

    Building applications on top of API's are always harder to test. The API's evolve, causing unencountered responses and downtimes.
    App developers are usually late in identifying failure cases when things breakdown. It is why we write tests.

    But with hundreds of API's collecting data for tests is duplication of efforts if someone already have done that.

    To make life easier for all developers, how about a collaborative space where we can dump our data fixtures (Github?)

    I would be glad to contribute as we have been working with Twitter API for the past eight years and have written thousands of…

  2. labs/1/users errors collection

    The new error collection is awesome! I am glad that we can now understand why fewer items are returned than requested.
    However, the errors are not always useful, in some cases you get
    status:403
    title:"Forbidden"

    2. It is not clear what's the reason for this error, in cases when we are returning a list, it's probably not…

  3. 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/Screen_Shot_2015-03-20-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 ... and ...…
