    We did revise the current list https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/developer-utilities/twitter-libraries.html a few weeks ago, covering the standard APIs (with a few with Ads API and premium API coverage)

    We'll be looking to identify additional, up-to-date libraries that cover the new functionality supported by Labs as the endpoints graduate, so do let us know if you are aware of any!

    Thanks Joe - the interest in .NET Language support is noted. We're fortunate to have a couple of good third-party ones at the moment (as you know!) and as we expand the new API surface I'll see what we can do to support the developers.

    Absolutely. It might entail a cleanup of the current list (which is outdated), and some form of endorsement and/or closer relationship between Twitter and the library developers. If we were to partner with developers in 4-5 frameworks, which languages do you feel might be most valuable - apart from PHP? ;-)

    Thanks, I've moved this over the the Twitter Developer Labs category as it fits better there than under the policy section.

    Can you comment further on the reason that adding the expansion parameter for the user object is an issue? As things stand, this is how the Tweet and User APIs have been designed, to provide for more flexibility in data formatting and in the requests (and this is common across all of the current Labs endpoints). We can certainly consider adding more data to the Tweet object at "default" format level, but the data is already available with a single additional query parameter, so it's not clear what this would add. Thanks!

    I’m moving this to the general Developer Labs section as it does not relate only to academic research.

    Thanks for this! Can you explain what this would enable, beyond using the search API to find Tweets referencing the original Tweet ID? What is the app idea or implementation scenario you've good in mind here if this was available?

    I'm curious to understand what you mean by sending a Tweet "to a group"? Can you provide more information and what you would like such an API to look like?

    You might like to check out our new Tweet metrics API in Twitter Developer Labs, as a starting point? https://twittercommunity.com/t/new-twitter-developer-labs-release-metrics-endpoint/129122

    Would an API for Tweet analytics be useful as an alternative to programmatic CSV downloads?

    Can you say more about why you believe geo information is not available at present?

    Geo data is already available in the Twitter API. However, it is (intentionally) left to the user to decide when they choose to add location information to a Tweet, and historically the numbers of Tweets with location attached tends to be fairly low. Correspondingly, data sets that search based on location may not always return a very high number of matching Tweets.

    The streaming API (also known as statuses/filter) still exists and has exactly the same access criteria as previously. As part of the Labs efforts, we have announced plans to create a new version of this API in the future - see https://trello.com/c/Z8E40gpV/43-filtered-stream-labs

    In my experience, the statuses/filter endpoint has been a very common way for researchers to gather data. Code that calls the statuses/filter endpoint continues to work just fine for collecting Tweets today.

    You mention "removing streaming", and it's important to clarify that the functionality that was retired last year was *user* streams, which provided home timeline and notification streaming for user events. This has been partially replaced by the Account Activity API.

    There are no current plans to build a direct replacement for user streams.

    Can you explain a little more about what you are looking for here? There is already an Ads API that enables campaigns to be managed and run. What's the specific request here, and what would this enable you to accomplish?

    Good news - this is exactly what is currently coming in the new Labs APIs!
