  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. Bug: incorrect like_count stats in the sample stream

    I got this json data out of https://api.twitter.com/labs/1/tweets/stream/sample?format=detailed

    This tweet https://twitter.com/theA1wife/status/1236899957858164736 has ~20K likes right now, though the stats in the json show 0 like_count.

    I apologize if this isn't where bugs go, but I didn't find anywhere else to post this.

    ```

  3. Difference between the result of Twitter search screen and the return value of API

    In some cases, the result of a search set to include a specific word in the advanced search of twitter is slightly larger than the return value of the API. However, some tweets only appear in the return value of the API.
    Why is this? Why aren't they unified?

    This is the advanced search screen I am talking about.
    https://twitter.com/search-advanced?f=live

    We want the same result as searching for AAA in the advanced search screen, so the API rules are:
    "(AAA OR bio_name: AAA) -is: retweet"
    Please let me know if anything is wrong.

    Thank you

  4. Filters other than the rules I created

    The following is written on this page.
    "The stream leverages some of our content filtering technology where we exclude high-confidence noisy content."
    https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/labs/filtered-stream/faq

    This is a different filter than the one I created.
    To make sure that my filters work properly, I need to turn off content filtering technology.
    I want to create an option that does not use content filtering technology.
    It is up to each user to get the data to determine which tweets are noisy.

    Thank you.

  5. Add the “order” of the image

    Retrieve tweets using Labs’ Recent search API.
    I referenced the images in the order included in mediakeys, but obviously not in the order displayed on twitter’s web.
    But, the order of the images is not included in media
    keys.

    How do I know the order of images if tweet has multiple images attached?

    For example, if a manga with a single story is posted with four images, like this:
    (TwitterWebURL)/shiromanta1020/status/917652272804380672
    This doesn’t make sense unless you read it in order.

    In order to reproduce this “order”, it is necessary to add the “order” of the image as a response…

  6. Geo enrichment

    Gnip PowerTrack has a "Profile Geo" enrichment [0].

    Adding this to the filtered streams API would make migrations easier.

  7. Proximity operator

    From the operator reference [0], the filtered streams appear to lack the proximity operator, that existed in Gnip PowerTrack.

    Having this in the filtered stream API would make it easier to migrate from Gnip.

    Additionally, in PowerTrack the maximum proximity value is 6. Increasing this limit would make the operator extra useful.

  8. First Tweet containing a hashtag

    Surface is the first tweet in the hashtag, to know the founder of the hashtag, it is his right; and also there are those who use the hashtag for no purpose intended for topic of the hashtag (no objection to it), but you are tired to reach the news for which the hashtag was founded due to the large number of tweets outside the same topic.

  9. Add "name" and "screen_name" to the response data of Recent search API

    In the published standard search API, these parameters are in a single tweet object.

    ・User object

    Screen_name and name are important elements in User Object.
    Now we have to expand. This is very inconvenient.

    Please add "name" and "screen_name" to the response data.

  10. Need a way to manage compliance (deleted Tweets) while using Sampled stream

    I currently use the statuses/sample endpoint to stream 1% of Tweets and related compliance events for those Tweets. Having the deleted Tweet events helps me know when Tweets I've received are no longer available so that my database and application stay compliant with Twitter's policies.

    Please give me a similar compatible and convenient way to keep the data received from Sampled stream compliant.

  11. Create hackathons to empower young people

    Identify the needs for self-improvement that young people publish, segmenting them by themes, using sentiment analysis to quantify in percentage the positive perspective they have about it (the negative or neutral could also be deduced), thereby launching collaborative training programs with non-profit organizations

  13. GET /labs/1/users compact format feedback

    I like the concept of having compact format in labs/1/users (to reduce the payload), but I don't find it to be very useful in the current format.
    Practically you would want to display a list of users with descriptions and stats, there might be cases when you don't show the description, or don't show stats, but I can't think of a scenario in which you would not show either (i.e. photos and names only)
