  2. Make downloading the Twitter archive data available

    Users were able to download their archives for years (https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/how-to-download-your-twitter-archive), but this feature was disabled after the Twitter security incident in July.

    Users now get the messages: "The download your data feature is unavailable right now. Try again at a later date."

    Please re-enable this feature again as it's extremely useful for many users to access their account history and clean up their accounts.

  3. Dedicated Bot Accounts

    Enable creation of dedicated "bot" accounts, solely for posting tweets or other automated activity. These would display with a 🤖 robot emoji by the name (instead of a blue checkmark) so they are easily distinguished from regular users.

    Self-selecting into the "bot" category could come with a different, more restrictive set of permissions - no web login or posting (OAuth only), cannot Follow others, or whatever other limits Twitter wants to impose on them. On the flip side, bots could enjoy different categories of moderation, suspension, or flagging rules as they are no longer being confused with "human" posters. No…

  4. Filtered Stream limits after Early Access

    The current limit for filtered stream is very small compared to the v1.1 API and we have no idea on the paid option to have increased limits on rules, characters per rule and total tweets. Is hard to plan ahead some features with the current information.
    Can you provide the information on paid tiers of that endpoint? It's a big change to leave us without knowing is it even possible to pay for enough limit.

  5. Allow wildcards in filter stream queries

    Change the keyword operator such that * matches one or more of any character.

    Use-cases:

    Additionally, the character ? could behave like *, except that it would match exactly 1 character.

    Limitations:


    • Wildcard keywords could be a non-standalone operator

    • A leading * or ? could be forbidden

    • A non-trailing * or ? could be forbidden

  6. Identify withheld *media* as well as Tweet

    Our product allows users to search for and aggregate content from Twitter to display on websites/apps in embeddable feeds. An issue we’ve been having recently are Tweets appearing in our dashboard search results, but where the media/video doesn’t play.

    We are aware of Twitter Amplify and Twitter Media Studio - and how publishers can geo-restrict videos, which we understand to be the cause of this issue.

    Currently we are forced to completely remove any/all Amplify-powered Tweets from our systems (removing any video where src contains “video.twimg.com/amplify_video” ) which means that we are also removing Tweets that are not withheld, but…

  8. Change the rate limit for the recent search endpoint

    Please consider changing the current rate limit for the recent search endpoint (v2 API). Currently an app can only fetch a total of 500k tweets in a monthly window, no matter how many active Twitter users it has, or if the requests are per-user. If an app has over 500k active user then there's no way for the app to function correctly due to this limit.

    In my case we're offering people to fetch hashtagged posts from Twitter for free, which is very popular for all kind of events, such as weddings and virtual conferences. We're not able to provide…

    each rule has char limit of 512, with such 25 rules/app and 512 chars/rule limits we will only be able to receive tweets from around 250~300 handles.

  11. Search by minimum retweets and likes in API 2

    Being able to search by minimum number of favourites and retweets as we could in API 1.1 would be great to see in Recent search API 2. This is particularly useful for a large volume of tweets, and being able to find the tweets with the most engagements.

  12. V2: Don't fail entire tweet if requesting promoted metrics

    If you request promoted metrics on a non-promoted tweet,it fails the entire request. Why not just return nulls or errors for those fields? No need to kill the whole tweet.

    Applies to recent search too

  15. Authentication with Oauth 2.0

    Will there be any ability to do 3rd party authentication with Oauth 2.0, or will it remain in Oauth 1.0a?

  18. Version 2 Tweet objects lack a field for Public-Interest Exceptions

    When displaying a tweet it is import to show if the it has a "public-interest exception". Tweet objects that are returned by Version 2 endpoints should have a field that specifies the exception if one is present. I work for a major US news organization, so that is the context for my request.

  19. Success and Errors in the same API.

    I am getting error in response If I am sending not promoted tweet Id with the tweet fields promotedmetrics key with other fields like organicmetrics.

    Instead of error in response, we can have a partial response ( in this case organic_metrics data ) with error is in another node.

  20. Media includes missing a number of important fields

    The variants data is missing, making videos impossible to play inline.

    The embeddable field is also missing, this is used to indicate that the photo media is actually a video that can only be played in a web browser.

    extalttext is missing.
