  1. Need a way to manage compliance (deleted Tweets) while using Sampled stream

    I currently use the statuses/sample endpoint to stream 1% of Tweets and related compliance events for those Tweets. Having the deleted Tweet events helps me know when Tweets I've received are no longer available so that my database and application stay compliant with Twitter's policies.

    Please give me a similar compatible and convenient way to keep the data received from Sampled stream compliant.

  2. Provide developers with an app usage tracking tool

    Twitter could include a tool in the developer portal that enables developers to monitor and manage usage across the different APIs, and helps them avoid unexpected rate limiting.

  3. Create hackathons to empower young people

    Identify the needs for self-improvement that young people publish, segmenting them by themes, using sentiment analysis to quantify in percentage the positive perspective they have about it (the negative or neutral could also be deduced), thereby launching collaborative training programs with non-profit organizations

  4. Allow API access to tweet analytics CSVs

    Specifically, some kind of way to download the csvs produced by exporting https://analytics.twitter.com/user/[INSERT DATA]/tweets given OAuth read (or even read/write) scope would be really useful

  5. Help developers filter out spam or other noisy content

    There can be a huge upfront effort to sift through the volume of Tweet data in order to get a data set that is interesting and valuable. It would be great to add more upfront filtering options to reduce the amount of data needed for statistically relevant analysis.

  6. Card Validator: Display all meta-tags?

    Description of issue: Could the Card Validator be updated to show all the meta-tags? As it is, it shows the count of metatags, and a somewhat interesting one, like this:


    INFO: Page fetched successfully
    INFO: 23 metatags were found
    INFO: twitter:card = summary_large_image tag found
    INFO: Card loaded successfully

    My request: It would be helpful to display all the tags, not just twitter:card.

    Extra credit: Highlight the tags that Twitter will actually use in the card. This would be helpful when similar tags are present, e.g., twitter:text:title and twitter:title

    URL affected (must be public): https://lochlymelodge.com

  7. Bypass "sign in with twitter" when using browser embedded in native Twitter app

    If you are using a native Twitter app such as the Twitter app on Android, if you click on a link to a website, which uses "sign in with twitter" to authenticate the user, the user is forced to login again, even though they are already authenticated with Twitter in the native app.

    In a perfect world this secondary sign in would not be necessary, and would reduce a lot of friction.

  8. Twitter follow/unfollow Limits

    Hi, I'd love for twitter to readjust the current Follow/unfollow Limits currently set for each app.. we understand these limits are being set to eliminate spam activities on twitter but there should be an exclusion to this rule. for example there could be restrictions as to who can be followed or unfollowed (spammed) by the app/service and this should be limited to only those that use the same service/app reason being that the users already know what they're getting into. the funny thing is - users already know how to do these these without even using a 3rd party service.…

  9. Data Fixtures for Twitter API's

    Building applications on top of API's are always harder to test. The API's evolve, causing unencountered responses and downtimes.
    App developers are usually late in identifying failure cases when things breakdown. It is why we write tests.

    But with hundreds of API's collecting data for tests is duplication of efforts if someone already have done that.

    To make life easier for all developers, how about a collaborative space where we can dump our data fixtures (Github?)

    I would be glad to contribute as we have been working with Twitter API for the past eight years and have written thousands of…

  10. Tweet translation should be available through the API

    Build a new request operator that can be included in an API request, and returns a translation of the Tweet text in the Tweet payload. Supported languages should be the same languages that are supported by the "lang:" request operator.

  11. labs/1/users errors collection

    The new error collection is awesome! I am glad that we can now understand why fewer items are returned than requested.
    However, the errors are not always useful, in some cases you get
    status:403
    title:"Forbidden"
    type:"about:blank"
    detail:"Forbidden"


    1. It is not clear which element caused this error since the error index is not correlated with the input id index, ideally there should be a reference to which id caused this error, and the order of the results returned seems random.


    2. It is not clear what's the reason for this error, in cases when we are returning a list, it's probably not…

  12. Show app developer profile on app authorization screen

    The app authorization screen that shows up whenever a user is authorizing / logging in using twitter with a twitter app for the first time should also display the app owner twitter account. Like a "Made by: @TwitterAPI ..." box

    As a user, I find it reassuring to see that an app developer has an active presence on Twitter, and as a developer, i'd like to be open about the app purpose and ownership.

    eg: https://developer.twitter.com/content/dam/developer-twitter/images/ScreenShot2015-03-20-authorize-card.png this screen should contain something like the profile popup displaying Name, screen_name, description, whether the account follows me and "Followed by ...…

  13. Provide an SLA

    Describe the level commitment (and dedication) to APIs.

    What are the thresholds for usage & overall sunsetting of service?

    What criteria will be used to make significant changes?
