As it prepares to introduce the commercial version of the functionality, Twitter will stop providing free access to the API after February 9.
The modification is a component of the platform’s revenue-generating strategy. As of right now, Twitter has not revealed the costs of the paid version.
The free API service has been utilised by millions of developers to build third-party solutions on the platform and monitor account changes on Twitter. As a result, it is assumed that Twitter bots will stop working after the free service is discontinued.
Researchers who studied internet abuse, hate speech, and the spread of disinformation are thought to be impacted by the loss of free access.
