  1. Bring back "tags" to new search endpoints

    Query tags are such a useful and simple feature... These essentially enable developers to inject a tag string into the returned payload... These tag strings can be used to record what query was used to match the data, and are helpful in segregating data into logical groups.

    Tags are supported in enterprise and premium search, and I am wondering what the future is with Labs and beyond. Note that tags remain a thing with Labs filtered stream.

    I am working on a project where a search endpoint is used to process a long list of queries, and not having tags…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    An…

  4. 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!

  5. Sentiment analysis

    As a developer working on a social analytics platform having a field in each Tweet that signals the calculated sentiment for Tweets would be very beneficial.

    I currently have a Bayesian Classifier that performs this task but maintaining my training data to adapt to newer Tweets is a big overhead.

    We can use Azure Cognitive Services APIs but there would be considerable costs processing data at scale.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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. 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.

  19. Provide an API to retrieve recent user notifications (likes, RTs, follows, added to list, mentions, etc)

    Today we have an API to get mentions and a cumbersome API to get some RT info. However, constructing something equivalent to the "Notifications" tab in Twitter is difficult or impossible. Where it's possible to approximate this functionality, it's inefficient (involving many requests) and runs up against rate limits very easily. A simple "GET notifications" API which returned objects representing notifications of all of these types (optionally with some filtering capability perhaps) would benefit app developers and likely reduce load from people bending over backward trying to replicate this functionality through the current APIs.

    Previously, it was possible to recreate…
