Support non-public metrics via OAuth 2.0 for the Labs v2 'Tweets and Users' endpoint
With API v2 (Labs v2) launching last week, it seems incredible that some endpoints still require the use of oAuth 1.0 which is scarcely supported. This makes developing for the 'next gen' API feel surprisingly primitive - and is an accessibility barrier that is unique in the sophisticated landscape of 2020.
Thanks for the suggestion. OAuth 2.0 user authentication for the API is on the roadmap https://t.co/roadmap but we are not there yet and this is a big change so it will take some time. In order to access non-public metrics for Tweets we do require user authentication, so that is why we currently require OAuth 1.0A for this functionality (these are private to the authenticated user). We appreciate your interest in a revised authentication mechanism!
