  1. Extract data without writing code

    I'd like to directly access Twitter data without needing to write code to collect data from the API.

  3. API account for Academia/Social Good

    In addition to standard, premium, and enterprise API accounts, I hope there will be an option for Academia/Social/Non-Profit accounts. As a graduate student, it would be very exciting to have access to free/affordable large datasets.
