  1. Respect for the individual user

    APIs from caused on data collection for research, classification and ad targeting is understandable. However, Twitter has failed the individual user. Methods being used for determining violations are severely inaccurate, fail to consider context, are not evenly applied (media page can post an article on something absurd with no violation, user can reference the topic of that article and it’s absurdity and receive a violation), do not recognize hate free, benign satire even though this is an exception to a violation in Twitter rules, provides no warning of a possible violation and even fails at following Twitter’s own system of…

  2. Talking Timer option in new Space App

    It's a simple idea after using a similar app, I think a much-needed feature "Talking Timer" that the moderator can adjust while in the Space that limits the talking time per speaker so that no one forgets himself and make a long speech and the moderator sometimes will be shy to force one to stop so everyone has a turn.

  3. Add polls to a status

    It should be allowed to create polls when adding a status. I's possible to retrieve data from polls, but it's not possible to create polls with the API, it doesn't make sense.

  4. Return conversation_id in webhook tweet events

    You would save my life if the property conversationid were returned in the tweet events of the webhook, (reply, retweet, retweet with comment and like), in this way you would have context and from external applications you could create unique ids foruserid + userid + conversation_id, In our application we need to create a unique identifier to have conversations with different users in the context of the tweet that started the conversation, I hope it becomes a reality, Thanks in advance.

  5. Datetime fields should accept all valid variations of ISO8601 timezone formats

    The start_time and end_time parameters to the [tweets API](https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-api/tweets/timelines/api-reference/get-users-id-tweets) currently only accept datetimes in YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ssZ format, ie with the "Z" at the end. But ISO8601 has other types of valid format, and I think the Twitter API should accept them.

    For example YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss+0000.
    See <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Time_zone_designators">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#Time_zone_designators</a> for other valid formats.

    PS your forum software interprets an underscore in a URL as a markdown italic indicator! smh

  6. URL count API

    Twitter is a place where news is broken and shared at scale. Companies want to understand how often news is shared and engaged with on Twitter, but we do not have an API that truly serves this functionality. Every PR company (e.g. Cision, Meltwater) and every social listening company (Brandwatch, Talkwalker...) has asked for this functionality and has tried to find workarounds to solve it.

    The API could function by submitting a URL field and returning share counts, and engagements.

  10. Bookmark feature to improve organization

    Ability to categorize bookmarks and have a search bar included in that feature as well. This will permit users to access their favorite saved posts quicker and more efficiently. Organization is rooted in the most common reasons of dislike while utilizing social media applications, so with this tool you would be killing two birds with one stone. Simply by gaining attention from current and new users as well to compete with other applications while getting rid of this nuisance.

  12. Trigger Warnings!

    Twitter needs a feature where users can toggle “on/off” to state if a the tweet they’re composing contains sensitive content, or is potentially triggering. As simple as giving options in the same manner of “who can reply” feature.

    Muting words can be helpful for filtering out triggering text Tweets, but doesn’t stop triggering media tweets, such as violence(gun, police, domestic abuse, etc.), racism, psychiatric conditions, injuries, illness, death, natural disasters, etc.

    The checkbox of if your account “contains sensitive material” is not enough.

    Many tweets that are very triggering go viral, and people don’t know that until they’ve watched/read all…

  13. Topics annotations

    Twitter is beginning to categorize tweets by topic (see https://help.twitter.com/en/using-twitter/follow-and-unfollow-topics ).

    I would like a new optional field in the Tweet object which tells us which topic(s) are relevant to the tweet. This could be added to the new optional "annotations" fields.

  16. UTF-8 Encoding of v2 API Responses

    Right now the Twitter v2 API seems to be returning responses that are not UTF-8 encoded, so characters like emoji show up as \uXXXX escape sequences. It'd be great to just use UTF-8 encoding by default since the vast majority of clients can consume it.

  20. Remove maximum bookmark limit

    I'm not sure why there's a limit on visible bookmarks to the end user... I feel like the cap should be removed, as there is no similar limit to the number of likes stored.

    At the very least: bookmarks are being considered for the v2 API, so I believe the endpoint shouldn't have a cap on how many bookmarks it is able to return.
