Replacement for most_recent_tweet_id
This is in reference to Get/2/users
Back in Labs v1, the expansion mostrecenttweet_id was introduced to compensate for the loss of tweet object available in API 1.1
But in V2 it was announced that the expansion was dropped for scalability reason, and we have been waiting other ways to solve the problem as identified in the announcement.
However, as of the date of this writing, it is still missing in v2.0, so it would be great to have a solution for this problem prior to sunsetting v1.1, I would imagine this would cause a major impact to a lot of services in the twitter eco-system.
While I understand the scalability implications of this expansion, not having it should cause even a larger scalability issue. We would basically need to make 101 calls instead of just one call to fetch information about users. There is a lot of valuable information about users that can be obtained from their latest tweet (the language, their last activity date and much more)
