  1. 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.

  2. Wildcards in filtered stream

    Wildcards would be very nice to have in filtered streams: Customers want them, and there is no way to emulate it on our side.

    When a query term contains a * character, * would match any character in a tweet, one or more time. When a query term contains a ? character, ? would match any character, exactly one time.

    For example, Tw*ter would match Twitter, Tweeter, Twiter, Tweetter.

  3. Geo enrichment

    Gnip PowerTrack has a "Profile Geo" enrichment [0].

    Adding this to the filtered streams API would make migrations easier.
