  2. V2: Return private metrics for media.fields

    Requesting any private metrics (non_public, organic) for media appears to be completely ignored at present. Public metrics are returned without issue.

    Cross-referencing some relevant links below.

  3. Allow the liking_users endpoint to be paginated or increase the limit of returned favourites

    When using the liking_users endpoint, it's limited to 100 favourites. This means that if there are more than 100, you can't flip through the results (as you can with other endpoints using the next tokens). Ideally this would have the same functionality as other endpoints. Less ideally but passable for now would be increasing the limit to 500 or more

  4. V2: Don't fail entire tweet if requesting promoted metrics

    If you request promoted metrics on a non-promoted tweet,it fails the entire request. Why not just return nulls or errors for those fields? No need to kill the whole tweet.

    Applies to recent search too

  5. V2: Return entity content of advertised/promoted tweets

    I use the API to return tweets of a list of users. I grab this over time and my app is essentially a curated timeline that shows the most popular/liked/replied tweets of a list of accounts over a given time period. You can also filter by tweet type, e.g. if it's a URL, photo, video etc.

    An example is if you follow 100 accounts, it will be able to show you the most retweeted tweets that are photos for those 100 accounts in that week.

    However, some of these tweets are adverts/promoted tweets. The API doesn't return entity data for…

  6. Return content of warning labels, if any

    Currently, there is no way to determine whether a tweet has been given a warning label (for instance, "This claim about election fraud is disputed", or "Official sources called this election differently"). A property should be added in the JSON response that contains information about the warning, including its text and the link to refer the user to when clicking on it.

    This should also apply to tombstone-style warning labels that block tweets that spread misinformation or potentially disputed information. The contents of these warnings, if they exist, should be returned along with the tweet.

  7. Full topic, domain, entity reference

    Dear Twitter,
    I'm not the first one to ask, but it would be great to have a full list of the topics, domain and entities, with their respective ids, to have as a reference so we can use them in our apps.
    Thank you in advance,
    Javier

  8. Need To Add Field IsHiddenReply to Tweet Payload

    Without this field as part of a tweet, it becomes very expensive in the form of API calls to manage a conversation. If this was available, it would be easy to manage hide replies because if the reply was already hidden, why make an api call that affects thresholds. Good for you because less processor time spent servicing requests.

  9. Conversation/Thread Endpoint

    Would be nice to add an endpoint to retrieve a whole conversation.
    I use a function which recursively verifies that I didn't already sent a response in the thread before replying to a tweet but this uses lots of API calls and would be nice to retrieve a whole thread (kinda like the endpoint that exists for the Twitter Website)

  10. Whether a tweet has been Liked/Retweeted by the currently authenticated user

    Right now, a tweet retrieved under v2 does not tell me whether the currently authenticated user has liked or retweeted the tweet. For now, this means I have to make a duplicate call under v1.1 if I want to get that information.

  11. Twitter Trends API | Count by Location

    At press time, when you do a get call to trends/place, regardless of location, tweet_volume returns the entire count of tweets in that trend.

    Requesting a feature where the tweetvolume returned is determined by the WOEID, so when you search for the UK for example, the tweetvolume returned would only count tweets in that trend from the UK!

  12. flag

    I would like to request a field to lookup if a tweet was flagged for civic integrity, e.g. "Election Results Were Called Differently". This flag should have a boolean to say whether or not the tweet was flagged, and a JSON object which contains the human friendly string for the flag message as well as a code for letting the programs that access the API be able to categorize and translate the message accordingly.

  14. Add an option to get expansions data as a hash instead of an array

    When parsing data from the Tweet Lookup api, it would be convenient to have the expansions returned as a hash instead of an array.

    For example, if I use the "media.attachments" expansion, I will iterate over each tweet and then have to iterate over each item in the "media" expansion to find the one that matches the media in the current tweet.

    If the expansions could also be returned as a hash, then I would only need to iterate over each tweet and could look up each media key in the expansion in the hash.
