  1. I would like the ability to receive a non profit tax exemption

    I work for a public university and we are exempt from taxes. I have to pay taxes to Twitter out of my own pocket because they are not reimbursable. Please develop a way for us to receive this tax reduction so that researchers are not paying it on their own when our school won't refund us. It would be very much appreciated.

  2. 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…

  4. Offer free accounts to developers of Open Source libraries

    I have discussed this regularly with @andypiper and it has never managed to move on.

    I am working on the Tweetinvi library for free as an individual. I am not making any money from this library. My entire purpose is to help the .NET Twitter developers community.

    It has been impossible for me to access some of the endpoints of Twitter because I do not have an enterprise account. Please make it possible in the backend for some apps to have a restricted access (kind of sandbox) to the Twitter API for Enterprises.

    Without the support from Twitter, this is…

  5. 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.

  6. Remove 'None' from tweet_volume in the trends_place()

    So recently I was trying to have a list of trending hashtags in twitter along with its volume. For this, I am using the twitter API trendsplace(). But when it generates the output, I see most of the hashtags have a tweetvolume as None.

    But when cross referenced it with the actual volume ,it was quite huge. I tried a bunch of other methods as well but seems like there is no reliable method as of now to remove these entries and make this more accurate.

    I think this should be addressed in the upcoming versions of Twitter…

  7. Polls tab

    I would like to recommend that you have separate tabs for polls where you can view polls that you voted for in terms of results and you can also view new polls from the people your following or also in regards to subjects your interested in or even from your region this will give twitter an edge on market research studies and consumer behavior or requirement I think this is something worth exploring

  8. 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.

  10. Twitter trends API reliability

    Currently available twitter trends API (/1.1/trends/place) seems to have issues due to which it returns stale data.

    Previously reported issues:
    https://twittercommunity.com/t/twitter-trends-not-updating-in-trends-api/141502
    https://twittercommunity.com/t/twitter-trends-not-updating-in-trends-api/136976
    https://twittercommunity.com/t/twitter-trends-showing-same-results-for-past-several-days/118821

    It usually happens once in few months or so and usually lasts for few hours (until, I believe, someone fixes it).

  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. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Scheduled Tweet Endpoint

    I'd like to have the ability to post a scheduled Tweet that executes at a future date and time you specify, similar to the Ads API. This would reduce client-side complexity and provide developers more flexibility in how to implement Tweet posting in apps.

  18. 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…

  19. Audience Insights

    Track the aggregate of who is talking about an issue -" the following people talk about coke and what we learn about them"). Their main is *how can customers better define users talking about the topics?
    The data that is available on the user object of the Tweet payload is basically what is available, with the addition of the follower graph endpoints that can provide a little more on the social web but not substantial

  20. Bookmark Folders

    The ‘bookmarks’ feature was an amazing addition, but many users have complained about how unorganized it can get. Many are pleading for the ‘folders’ feature to be added, so can they separate their save tweets based on preference. Adding this feature would make users’ experience on Twitter so much better.
