trim_user param should include screen_name field


#1

I’ve noticed that setting the trim_user=true param significantly reduces the payload from the REST API (home_timeline endpoint). I’d really love it if Twitter can send screen_name too in addition to the user_ids or have a param for screen_name=true (for example) to include this field in the response.

Any one else feel strongly about this?

Thanks for the suggestion! We don’t have any plans to make changes in this area at the current time, but we definitely take onboard all the community suggestions and I’ll pass this along to the API team.
