Starting February 9, we will no longer support free access to the Twitter API, both v2 and v1.1. A paid basic tier will be available instead 🧵

Is there a source for this news that includes a date for the Twitter API shut down? Or is it just another Elon plan that evolves, morphs, and possibly even reverses as he bumbles along and discovers the obvious pitfalls to his actions after the fact?

Wait what is twitter api and what happened

To be clear. I do research involving and teach a class about Twitter API usage. Free access tiers get people invested in, excited about, and knowledgeable with a product i.e. creates customers for the product that might otherwise not be created.

hello everyone, this hourly bot is run by cheap bots done quick, since the twitter API going to be paywalled we wont be able to use it anymore. im really hoping that it’ll somehow still work, but we’re planning on scheduling tweets instead after the 9th – 🪐 https://t.co/ESUl5DLQll

Seeing as many of the Twitter API users are business use cases, I can see this actually working if the price is low enough. But I think Twitter Blue subscribers should get free API usage. Of course, it is much harder to take away something free than to charge from day one.

Hopefully you don’t charge for basic Twitter API sign-in?
Seeing as how Google, Facebook, Github, Apple, Microsoft, Line, Okta, Slack, Twitch, Zoom & many more providers offer this for free…
Tell me, why would I pay a dime to offer Twitter Login on a web app now? No thanks 😂

Happy #100DaysOfCode to all, today the retweets will end as the twitter api moves to a paid subscription. Good luck to you all!

Back in 2006 when @Twitter was in Beta, I was a Beta tester & integrated the Twitter API with my site for FREE & now Musk is charging $150+ -depending on ur applications’ requests.
The whole point of Twitter at its inception was the seamless & open API.
Musk is ruining this app.

Dear Twitter API users,
Help save lives. Putler’s Z Nazi Ruzzia is sacrificing Muslim Chechens, Russians, Ukrainians Orthodox, and others.

So wait with Twitter API changing to a paid service I have a question. So if I have a link on my twitter feed (AKA I tweeted out a link) does that count for me needing to pay for it?
Or does it only apply to the actual website link in bio?

Additional concerns surrounding the closure of free Twitter API include
– Cessation of the automatic posting of Tweets announcing new issues of the newsletter and devblog posts
– Cessation of the new Tweet announcements in our Discord’s socials feed

On the assumption that this doesn’t get reversed, I fear I may need to issue refunds to my few customers of Tweet Yeet. I can’t imagine any pricing model for the Twitter API that would allow me to keep it running… https://t.co/plVYkO09LD

unfortunately not in this case, hello dev here. a lot of people are currently using the Twitter API. the fact that it was free was wild to me. the more people that use it, the more stress is put on their servers. meaning they have to scale it up and up which costs money
