Filter tweets by users list
It could be great to be able to use the "list:username/list-name" search parameter into the filtered stream endpoint, to watch tweets from a list of users rather than chaining "from:usernameX" parameters until the 10*512 chars are used.
Especially since the new endpoint will replace the current one that currently allows to watch up to 5k users (the "from:xxx OR " method will only allow to watch 250 to 400 users depending on the average username length ; that's more than 10x less than before).
Thanks for the feedback. This is not on our roadmap for the near-term future. However, we understand the problem that you are facing and we will bear this in mind going forward.
I agree with Richie, too.
The method used by the old endpoint "list:username/list-name" is better than the new endpoint that uses the "from:" rule.
Having a limit based on the number of users to follow (5k) is more convenient than having a limit based on the number of characters used in the rule.
Also with the old endpoint there is the possibility to follow a larger number of users.
