Thanks for reaching out, and no, we have not heard from the Twitter team since we posted our last message.
Please let me know what step(s) are required on our part to get access to the Twitter Premium API. This has been something that we have been looking forward to getting access to for quite some time, and I look forward to working with you to get this setup done ASAP.
One of the main features of the Premium API that we are trying to utilize is the ability to retrieve the full tweet (280 characters). At present, we are only able to retrieve 140 characters from a tweet, with our current API access. Please let us know if there any additional step(s) that we need to complete in order to access the full tweet content.
