Twitter Introduces New $5,000-per-Month API Tier for Startups

Twitter has unveiled a new API tier called Twitter API Pro, catering specifically to startups, with a monthly cost of $5,000

Twitter has unveiled a new API tier called Twitter API Pro, catering specifically to startups, with a monthly cost of $5,000. This tier offers developers the ability to fetch up to 1 million tweets per month, post 300,000 tweets per month, and access the full archive search endpoint.

Earlier this year, Twitter had announced its intention to discontinue access to its free API tier. However, it reconsidered this decision and now provides free access to 1,500 tweets per month for content provider bots.

Positioned between the $100 per month basic tier and the $42,000 per month enterprise tier, the new Pro API tier aims to support startups in scaling their businesses. Many developers and founders had voiced their concerns when the pricing tiers were first announced, calling for a middle tier to accommodate startups that cannot afford the high cost of the enterprise tier.

While the Pro API tier addresses some of these concerns, it still poses a financial challenge for businesses operating on tight budgets, as they would need to allocate $60,000 per year. The posting limit of the Pro tier may suffice for certain bots, but developers might find it difficult to generate sufficient funds through subscriptions or donations to sustain their services in the long run.

Notably, Twitter has yet to provide a solution for researchers and academics. In March, the company expressed its commitment to exploring new ways to serve this community, but no specific announcements have been made thus far.

Elon Musk, during an event, mentioned that Twitter is on a “comeback arc” following his implementation of cost-cutting measures. Recently, the company appointed Linda Yaccarino from NBCUniversal as CEO of both Twitter and the ambitious “everything app X.”
