Twitter replaces its free API with a paid API in quest to make more money

Twitter’s API provides functionality for accessing data from Twitter such as retrieving and analyzing public data, and sending and receiving tweets and allowing 3rd party apps to connect to the platform, creating non-commercial tools and bots. This will impact students and scientists who use the platform for research.

Currently, developers can access the platform using that tier for between $149 and $2,499 a month as shown in the images above. Also, Twitter Blue for Organizations is 1000$ /per month and $50 per affiliate.

Elon musk is making Twitter an “everything app” which will comprise fintech services such as peer-to-peer transactions, savings accounts and debit cards, messaging, payments and commerce. Musk will also explore more ways for users to reward creators directly, buy items directly, to pay one another through the platform.
