alt text via API
Images in tweets should have their alt text available via API. Make it obvious. Here is where I would have expected to find it: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/tweets/data-dictionary/overview/entities-object#media

Thanks; then I'd love to see it in the docs/examples - also to have it returned by default.

include_ext_alt_text=true still works for Standard REST, but Labs does not appear to have this

Yes! Information that improves the accessibility of apps and thus the usefulness of said apps for the people that use them should be available to all.
Twitter, please don’t keep making it impossible to make accessible apps for you platform.
