It is not only verification marks that are under Elon Musk’s hammer for a revamp, but the Twitter API has also gone through significant changes since February. The company recently announced a new Twitter API access tier called Twitter API Pro for Startups, which costs $5000 per month or approximately Rs 4,13,000.
The new tier allows customers to receive 10,00,000 tweets per month, post 3,00,000 tweets per month, and access a suite of v2 endpoints “including searchable and filtered streams”.
Twitter The developer handle tweeted, “Today we’re launching our new access tier, Twitter API Pro! Experiment, build your business with 1M tweets per month, including our powerful real-time filtered/streamed and full archive search endpoints.” And expand on that. We look forward to seeing what you create next!”

In February this year, Twitter announced its plans to stop free access to both the v2 and v1.1 Twitter APIs and in March introduced a new API pricing structure, which included a free tier for testers and developers, Those who only needed to create posts. They have a limit of 1,500 tweets per month per app and can only have one App ID.
The Basic plan charges $100 or approximately Rs 8,200 and also has a monthly tweet limit. It also allows two App IDs. The Enterprise plan has several tiers of membership that cost thousands of dollars per month and offer a range of features.
Policy flip-flops seem to be kind of routine at Twitter since Musk took over, and this can be seen in its API policy as well.
Twitter, in early May, announced free access to its API for publicly owned services that tweet alerts, transportation updates and emergency notifications. The development comes after Twitter in February stopped offering free access to its application programming interface and instead launched a paid version of its API.
Free access to the Twitter API forced many publicly owned service accounts to leave Twitter, issuing emergency alerts.
New Twitter Blue Features
Meanwhile, on May 18, Musk announced via his Twitter handle that Twitter Blue verified users can now post videos that are twice as long and larger than before. “Twitter Blue verified subscribers can now upload up to 2 hours of video (8 GB),” he added. The previous limit was one hour, or 4GB, for Twitter Blue subscribers. However, video quality remains at 1080p for all.
