WIRED: Twitter’s $42,000-per-Month API Prices Out Nearly Everyone
WIRED: Twitter’s $42,000-per-Month API Prices Out Nearly Everyone. “The company is now offering three levels of Enterprise Packages to its developer platform, according to a document sent by a Twitter rep to would-be academic customers in early March and passed on to WIRED. The cheapest, Small Package, gives access to 50 million tweets for $42,000 a month. Higher tiers give researchers or businesses access to larger volumes of tweets—100 million and 200 million tweets respectively—and cost $125,000 and $210,000 a month. WIRED confirmed the figures with other existing free API users, who have received emails saying that the new pricing plans will take effect within months.” I believe the technical term for those prices is “goony”.
