  1. 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.

  2. 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:)

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Hide Partial Tweet for Spoiler Discussion

    Add a feature to allow for the creation of spoiler filled discussions without the concern of the spoilers being seen by others while they are scrolling through their timeline.

    Ideally this would allow for a visible topic to be posted (Movie Title), followed by some text along the lines of "spoiler" that would act as a trigger to display the hidden portion of the tweet (Movie Spoiler).

    Potentially replies to the parent tweet would inherit the title and spoiler tag as well to keep replies, retweets, or likes from showing up on a timeline with the spoiler content visible.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.
