  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.

  4. 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…

  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…

  7. Alt Text Expansions

    The ability to retrieve Alt text in v1.1 is an old feature that was completely overlooked.

    It was overlooked again in Labs as not a priority: https://twitterdevfeedback.uservoice.com/forums/921790-twitter-developer-labs/suggestions/38653933-alt-text-via-api

    The new v2 version of the API is STILL missing the ability to retrieve alt text from tweets.

    I would expect to find alt text along with the media, in https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-api/expansions

  8. 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.

  9. 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. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Image ALT tags

    Ability to add pre-selected or custom alt tags to images.

    The image Alt Tag feature would enable users to control the images that appear on his/her timeline by muting the words used to describe certain images. For example, I could mute "Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving dinner, Thanksgiving plate..." to prevent images tagged with these terms from appearing on my timeline.

    This will also be a huge benefit for individuals with vision disabilities. Should pair well with screen readers.

    Thank you.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  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.
