  3. "blocked_by" endpoint

    Would be nice to have an endpoint to know who blocked a specific user.
    We already have an endpoint to have the blocking users but the opposite doesn't exist.

  4. Endpoint to get user data from access token and access token secret

    There should be an endpoint to get the user data corresponding to the tokens provided instead of manually providing the user id as the tokens are provided per user per app.

  5. Birthday

    Hi There, I am looking to get a user birthday from the user lookup to build a greeting mechanism for user & followers.

    It’ll be good to have this information for the user with authentication if it cannot be made publicly available. Thanks

  6. v2 endpoint for GET user/search

    v1.1 supports a GET user/search which is limiting in many ways:

    • limited to 1000 users
    • results are not relevant to the authenticated user
    • does not respect the blocked user rule (blocked users show up in the search results)

  7. Re-introduce user lookup fields from v1.1 in v2

    Many fields that were previously available in /1.1/users/lookup.json are not available in v2 2/users/:id

    Are those fields officially deprecated or would it be possible to add them ?

  8. Add friendship expansion to retrieve Twitter Following/Follower status

    The v2 API returns the User object without a relationship between the authorized query user with other users. And v1 API returns isFollow/followingPending attributes in the User object.

    I believe one of the v2 API design targets is to reduce the API query count. So adding a friendship expansion in the query will help.

    For example:
    {
    userID: <ID>
    following: <Bool>
    followed_by: <Bool>

    }

  9. enable emoji-based query for user-search

    Right now, it does not seem possible to run emoji-based queries for users through the API, while it is possible in web searches. Would be awesome to enable this feature for API queries in v2! See thread here: https://twittercommunity.com/t/cannot-query-by-emoji-using-search-user-through-tweepy/147103/4

  12. save the daily stories

    Create a dedicated section to save the daily stories and make them on the face of the personal account in a smooth and clear manner, like what is present on Instagram, so we have completed a new and important section

  13. Include latest status id in user object

    It seems that the new v2 user lookup endpoint doesn’t return the latest tweet posted by the user(s). It was previously provided by the v1.1 API and was quite powerful (for example) to determine the latest datetime a user was actively (re)tweeting, without having to call the user_timeline endpoint (that is currently inconveniently limited to 100k calls a day (per app)).

    Would it be possible to add it back on v2 under a “latest_tweet_id” field?

    I am aware that the pinned tweet id is returned, but it doesn’t satisfy my needs.

  14. Please add profile banner image

    The v2 API "/2/users" missing the user profile banner image (a.k.a "profilebannerurl" in v1). Please add it back so we not have to request the API twice.

  16. Suspended & Restricted Fields like Withheld Field

    User lookup returns fields like "protected", "withheld" and "verified" but there are no fields for suspended, restricted and deleted accounts.
