A week after Twitter announced it would discontinue free access to the API, the microblogging platform said Thursday it will charge $100 per month for the basic level of the API (application programming interface).
Initially, the company planned to discontinue free access to its API on February 9, but now it has extended the deadline to February 13.
The company shared the information on Twitter via its Twitter Dev account, saying, “We’re excited to announce an extension of the current free Twitter API access through February 13.”
“Paid basic access that offers a low level of API usage, and access to Ads API for a monthly fee of $100.”
In addition, the company said that on February 13, it will write off the premium API, which was part of v1.1.
“Also on February 13, we will be deprecating the Premium API. If you subscribe to Premium, you can request Enterprise to continue using these endpoints,” it tweeted.
Furthermore, the microblogging platform mentioned that it will also introduce a new form of free access for those bot developers who post good content.
“A new form of free access will be introduced as it is extremely important to our ecosystem – limited to creating tweets of up to 1,500 tweets per month for a single verified user token, including logging in with Twitter,” the company tweeted.
The company concluded by saying, “This is a new chapter for the Twitter API to raise quality, reduce spam, and enable a thriving ecosystem.”
