Twitter has announced an update to its API access structure, introducing new tiers after delaying the move for weeks. The new API access tiers consist of three levels — Free, Basic and Enterprise — as the older tiers Standard, Essential and Elevated access will be deprecated.
The free tier is aimed at developers who are starting or experimenting with projects, as well as for small-scale applications and bots. The Basic plan is designed for small and medium-sized businesses or applications with growing needs and traffic, offering more extensive API access and features for a monthly fee of $100. The Enterprise plan targets large-scale businesses, enterprises, and high-traffic applications, providing the most comprehensive API access and features at a higher monthly fee.
