I'd like us to do better on documenting all the various fields of the API. A lot of fields make sense if you've used Twitter for a long time, but that's not very useful if you're new to Twitter or new to the platform.
In these interests I've set up a tiny wiki on Github for crowdsourcing some of the field definitions. I've started with some of the more basic fields attached to status updates: http://bit.ly/twitter-api-fields I'll fill in fields throughout the next several days as time allows, but would love it if anyone who felt passionate about defining these fields would help out -- many of you know them better than I do. After a bit of time, collection, & editing, I'll get these put onto dev.twitter.com and credit all the contributors, and we'll see how this process goes. The wiki only requires a Github account to edit. Right now the thought is to group wiki pages into each kind of resource: * statuses/tweets * users * places * entities * etc For some further reference, you can check out Raffi's great "anatomy of tweet" though it is somewhat outdated now: http://mehack.com/map-of-a-twitter-status-object Thanks!
