  1. Allow the archive data to be downloaded from mobile devices

    Users with mobile devices sometimes fail to download the archive data.

    There are various reasons for this, such as not being able to press the download button after failing download the file once, or not being able to download a large file due to narrow bandwidth.

    Please fix the problem so that the archive data can be downloaded properly even in these situations.

  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. List Discovery API v2 Endpoints

    As a developer of a command line client, I would like to provide a way for users to discover new lists based on a specified criteria, similar to the Discover New Lists in the web UI.

    Being able to search against the name and description fields would beneficial, in addition to the same algorithm used in the web UI.

  5. 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…

  7. Add promoted boolean field to Twitter object

    Similarly to copyright, add promoted boolean filed to Twitter API (incl. lookup EPs, PowerTrack and Account Activity API) indicating if the Tweet is organic or paid (boosted/promoted and nullcasted/promoted-only).

  10. Quality of Life Twitter Suggestions

    Please add / change the following or implement improvements similar to it.


    1. An edit tweet button with a limit how many times a tweet can be edited either on a time or a flat number of times


    2. A feature to have a pinned post that acts like a slideshow flipping up to 10 different pinned posts that switch on a timer which can be set anywhere between 5 seconds and 30 seconds


    3. An upgraded version of ‘Not Interested’ feature in settings which allows someone to limit the amount of tweets they see from a user per hour instead of muting…

  11. Change rate limit for blocks

    There should be a higher rate limit per user for blocking and unblocking. Since this is the only way to remove followers, it would be nice to have a higher rate limit for this to remove a larger amount of followers.

  12. Muted Words API v2 Endpoints

    As a developer of a command line client, I would like to be able to allow a user to manage their Muted Words, so that they can list, update, create, and delete muted words for their account.

    This would allow users to create and eventually share curated muted word lists.

  13. Need for Twitter 'test accounts/users' for testing functionality

    As an integration developer, I need the ability to test endpoint functionality, publishing/scheduling and media so that we can effectively test the development of features. Having a test Twitter user would be helpful for testing.

    Facebook offers this feature with their developer platform: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/development/build-and-test/test-users/

    Can Twitter create a similar feature?

  14. Sign in screen

    Just a small review from a UX Designer:

    If I go to the home screen (desktop version) and click on the sign-up button I don't have the option to go back if I, for example, made a mistake and want to log in.
    The only way back is to refresh the page.
    Maybe adding an X at the top left part would be a good idea.

  15. Improve NER Tagging on the State of Maine

    I've been using state NER annotations (works great!) provided by the twitter API and I'm noticing that the state of Maine likely needs more training as I'm seeing it picked up much less often, even on 'easy' tagging situations where other states are picked up. There are some collisions between languages on Maine (and Montana) which cause issues, but even on lang:en tweets, Maine seems to be picked up much less than it should be.

  16. Allow web twitter themes to be used for embedded tweets

    I really appreciate that the meta tags theme (& do not track!) property exist for embedded tweets already — that said, theming would would be even better if you could similarly either:


    1. chose from the existing on-site theme options for further embedded tweet theming! e.g. 💙⭐️🌸🐙🔥🥑, those currently available on the web to "Customize your view"


    2. or less ideally, define an custom accent color for links/@-names in tweets for the whole page (similar to how the embedded timeline border color can be customized with a hex color value)


    Really, I'd just like for my embedded tweets to not have the…

  17. Application process less automated

    I am trying to apply for a developer account. In the first stage, I answered all the questions, of course considering the minimum requirements where it was applicable. The system would not let me proceed with the application when the required fields were not properly filled out. Sometime later I received an email, in which some of the questions from the initial application were repeated. I answered all of them again but one day later another email:
    "The information we need is listed below:

    Your current role as an academic (whether you are a graduate student, doctoral
    candidate, post-doc, professor,…

  18. Add Group Direct Message support

    I would like to see Group Direct Message support added to the Twitter v2 API following the parameters found on this page: https://help.twitter.com/en/using-twitter/direct-messages


    • You can start a private conversation or create a group conversation with anyone who follows you.

    • Anyone in a conversation can send Direct Messages to the group. Everyone in a group can see all messages, even if everyone doesn’t follow each other.

    • In group conversations, anyone in the conversation can add other participants. Newly added participants won’t see the prior history of the conversation.

    • Some accounts, particularly businesses on Twitter, have enabled a setting to receive Direct…

  19. Reporting non-spam content via API

    There's not currently an endpoint to report abusive tweets, whether it's violent threats or inciting harassment.

    It would be nice to have an endpoint similar to the spam endpoint (/1.1/users/report_spam.json) for report both abusive tweets and users.

  20. Link Preview for twitter links

    This is to bring to your attention a certain UI behavior on Twitter. Currently, we do not see link preview on Twitter for links like this:
    https://twitter.com/applesupport
    https://twitter.com/twitter

    In other words, Twitter doesn't show link previews for links in the twitter.com domain. The said webpages https://twitter.com/applesupport and https://twitter.com/twitter do not have twitter:card tags, as a result, the preview doesn't show up. It would be nice to have some insights into the reasoning behind the behavior. Also wanted to know if this behavior can be changed and some previews can be shown natively for such links.

    Note: This behavior is not…
