TechCrunch: Twitter launches lower-cost subscription access to its data through new Premium APIs

TechCrunch: Twitter launches lower-cost subscription access to its data through new Premium APIs. “Twitter tried to mend its relationship with developers earlier this year with the launch of a new API platform which focused on streamlining APIs and the promise of additional tiers of access. Twitter said it would offer free APIs for testing ideas, self-serve access, as well as paid access for increased functionality, in addition to its enterprise APIs. Today, Twitter is delivering on its plans to offer developers paid APIs that are a step down from the needs of enterprise-scale businesses.” This should have happened years ago and it might be too late.
