Allow users to take control of their own data
Please ease the restrictions on getting their own friends/followers data.
Twitter's API restrictions are getting stricter every year, and starting with Twitter API v2, I understand the data that users will be able to retrieve via the API will decrease by 80%.
Previously, with a single API call, users could retrieve 5,000 friends (or followers), but in the future, users will only be able to retrieve 1,000 friends (or followers). https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-api/users/follows/migrate
I understand that this decision has been made from the perspective of sustainability of the service, but please reconsider restricting users from controlling their own data.
As one solution, how about separating the rate limits for when users retrieve their own data and when users retrieve other data?
Getting followers, following, mutes, and blocks should have significantly increased limits. With some accounts having half a million followers, retrieving this data, blocking, etc. takes days. Maintaining users is critical to ensuring a quality user experience.
