Jack Asked Twitter Users What They Want. Here’s What They Answered. #helloworld


UPDATE: Twitter published a blog post with some more #helloworld stats and insights. Also thanks for mentioning this Medium post :)

Not only developers responded to Jack’s question, other Twitter users also took the chance to share their thoughts. Here are the most popular topics they responded with:

Allow 3rd party Twitter clients

Expand API endpoints & remove limits

Ability to edit tweets

Protecting users from abuse

Geographic search

Make lists easier to use

140 character limit

Twitter’s business model

Inactive Twitter handles

Scheduled tweets

@-mentions at the beginning of a tweet
