Ad revenue must be down bad.
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 🧵Show this thread
my guess is it’s more about raising the friction to make bots
Yeah, free API is being abused badly right now by bot scammers & opinion manipulators. There’s no verification process or cost, so easy to spin up 100k bots to do bad things. Just ~$100/month for API access with ID verification will clean things up greatly.
seems like the replies are some combination of a few valid concerns alongside many hyperbolic hate boners 🤪 but that seems to be par for the course for people reacting to every change 😭 parsing through the noise is annoying
