  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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".

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. I'd like the ability to get followers for a user but in a sorted manner.

    Right now you can definitely get all the followers of a user, but I want to be able to sort those results by particular properties. So for example, I may want to sort my followers by the number of followers they have, in order to see my most "important" followers.

  18. Follow, block, and mute Introduction

    As we build the next generation of the Twitter API, we’re looking at how to rebuild the “follower graph” endpoints. Whether or not you’ve used the follow, search, and get users, or the mute, block and report users endpoints, we want to hear what you think. This is an effort to continue building in the open: sharing our roadmap and keeping you updated on our vision. As we have done in Twitter Developer Labs, this plan is not final, and with your feedback, will evolve over time.

  20. Missing entitiy operator is:reply

    If I want to filter for original tweets only I can use -is:retweet and -is:quote, but then I still receive tweets which are discussion replies. I can filter them out manually as a work around by checking for inreplytouserid values in the streams data fields, but having a is:reply entitiy operator would be very useful and save traffic and processing power on both sides.
