  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Could not authenticate you

    I always get the error "{"errors":[{"code":32,"message":"Could not authenticate
    you."}]}" when I use "users/show.json", but it can success with "application/ratelimitstatus.json".
    Can I get more information to solve this problem? Thank you !

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Release from 3 day limit alert

    Giving us an alert when we are off our 3 day limit, because you guys give us one when we’re put on it but not when released from it.

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. Add an Ask a Question feature, with allowed anonimity

    Already used through third-parties, an Asking feature would allow a new channel for interaction between users, with possible permission control such as ""follows/mutual followers only".

  17. Specific accounts cleared from search history

    So, when the recent search option appears the clear button is in the top right corner with the accounts aligning beneath. Being able to click which account you want to clear from your recent search history would be significant for those networking, attempting to save time from repetitive search, and users in general of course.

  18. Search bar for your individual timeline

    Implementing a search bar solely for your timeline will save users from wasting time trying to remember tweets when they refresh the app. Instead of having to scroll down, search for the tweet with words that are constantly used in the atmosphere, and for those that may have forgotten to bookmark it immediately upon sight.

  19. 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…

  20. Integration of twitter login flow for mobile apps and websites

    A lab for building a simple login flow using the REST API and HTTP headers would do us a world of good. Detailed steps with how to build structured messages (I am aware that this is documented in fair detail but a lab form would additionally help us test our individual solutions as well) along with reference implementation and standard value outputs against which bespoke solutions can be tested. Along with the above a list of reference implementations for various languages such as Javascript, Java, Python would help as well. I am still stuck at Twitter login and am struggling…
