  1. 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,…

  3. Filter Stream API: Operator rule to "return more than X tweets per second" vs. specifying a percentage sample

    A rule operator of "no more than X tweets per second" is very similar to sampling. However, if it existed, it could theoretically set on every rule. This would allow knowing that no rules could absorb too much of total allowed volume, and to make sure that low volume rules aren't sampled, while higher volume rules still are. It would also mean that a rule that has a sudden burst of activity would not absorb all available volume at once. Without this operator, monitoring the volume on rules must take place, and sampling must be applied dynamically when volume increases…

  6. Media includes missing a number of important fields

    The variants data is missing, making videos impossible to play inline.

    The embeddable field is also missing, this is used to indicate that the photo media is actually a video that can only be played in a web browser.

    extalttext is missing.

  7. API endpoint to get monthly tweet quota data - return both usage and expiration

    It appears that you are now enforcing a monthly cap on the number of tweets we can obtain via API.

    This request is for programmatic access to this quota information. In particular, it would be helpful to retrieve both the number of tweets fetched for the current month, and the reset date. Thanks!

    See here for specifics:

  8. Adding the 'url' option in media.fields for videos

    As in the title. The 'url' object is available for still images, but not for videos. This make absolutely NO SENSE. I would've thought this would be a major feature, and I wonder why it hasn't been included.....

    The exclusion of this will affect thousands of API users, in my opinion.

  9. Twitter v2 Streaming API Rate Limits via API

    Hey there,

    Could you please add an endpoint for getting rate-limits to the twitter v2 streaming api. It's not practical to continuously login and check a dashboard. thanks!

  10. Add poll to a status

    It should be allowed to create polls when adding a status. I's possible to retrieve data from polls, but it's not possible to create polls with the API, it doesn't make sense.

  12. Allow to add polls to tweet via python

    Polls can't be added to "update status tweet".
    It should be allowed to post poll via python coding, simple as that
    One could obtain info from tweets, arrange information to sort for best possible choices, and then post a poll.

    Only step in procedure that can't be done is to post poll.

  14. Make Poll API which can all polls for a particular user.

    Like many developers have questions like below:

    1) I wanted to know like can I get all polls data for a user?
    2) Is there any API exist that will give me the details of the poll for a certain user?
    3) can we get all polls data for a user since a user has been created? If yes then How?

    So if Twitter can make an API that satisfies the above requirement.

  15. /2/tweets/:id should support a username query argument

    Fetching individual or lists of users via ID is obviously always preferable, but there's cases when that's simply not possible.

    The v1.1 API had option to pass in username/screen_names instead of IDs and it'd be great if v2 had the same option.

  16. Entity "media" URLs should have a media_key

    This (pastebin.com/WGD0fp8D) is a Tweet that has a couple random links, a manually pasted in link to a Twitter photo and an uploaded photo.

    When parsing entities.urls, there should be a way match the two image entity URLs to a media_key.

    Problem #1. There’s no indication that a particular URL is a media URL.

    Problem #2. There’s no direct key to match the appropriate attachment.

    Adding a media_key KV to the entity.urls would fix these two problems.

  18. Think of end to end tests

    When developing the endpoints please consider how you would write end to end tests.

    In v1.1 end to end tests can be complicated to write. Not only is there the challenge of timeouts and replication of the data on your server but also some of the endpoints just stop working temporarily.

    Over the years I have reported many bugs that could have been prevented if Twitter did have end to end tests.

    Please do think about writing these tests and think through how developers of libraries can write similar tests.

    You can find my end to end tests collection here…

  19. Sign in with Twitter sundowned?

    It seems like the new Projects system makes using sign in with Twitter on a website impossible. One project per person and one app per project? How is a developer supposed to implement sign in with Twitter on more than one sight? Is sign in with Twitter even supported anymore?

  20. Add result type to recent search and similar endpoints

    Hi,

    We would like to propose the possibility of changing the result type of recent search. Currently, the results are ordered in inverse chronologycal order, meaning that if we want to retrieve "popular" (big enough engagement metrics) tweets from a rather popular hashtag or search query, we will end up with many tweets which do not have enough metrics to be considered "popular". This means we need to retrieve every tweet possibe in order to detect "popular tweets", resulting in a large consumption of rate limits.

    A possible solution to this problem could be adding the V1.1 request parameter "result_type",…
