  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  9. 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.
