After Microsoft, WordPress is the latest company to leave Twitter's API. This happened after Twitter suddenly suspended WordPress from accessing their API without any warning on April 3rd.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has stopped using Twitter to provide real-time alerts to customers. This decision comes amidst Twitter's hefty $50,000 demand to continue using its APIs.
The disabling of this feature on Twitter is likely due to Microsoft deciding to no longer use Twitter's API which is now only available for a starting price of $42,000 for large companies.
Microsoft Advertising has decided to no longer support Twitter starting April 25. However, this move has apparently caused Twitter CEO Elon Musk to threaten Microsoft with a lawsuit.
The outage at Twitter started earlier today and affected the social network's APIs. However, the downtime was fairly brief and the social network seems to be back up and running again.
Twitter said the delay in its new API launch was due to wanting "to create an optimal experience for the developer community." The upcoming paid API has been met with some resistance among developers.
Twitter has announced that it will be charging $100 per month for the basic tier of its API. The company also extended the deadline for shutting down free API access to February 13th.
Musk has gone to his social media platform Twitter following the announcement that free API access will be removed, to say that a free tier will remain but only if bots provide 'good' content.
Twitter announced that API access will become paid starting February 9, a few weeks after it blocked some third party usage, marking another monetization effort under Elon Musk's ownership.
Twitter will now allow developers who use the Twitter API to label their bots as "Automated". The label could help inspire trust, but the opt-in method seems open to misuse by bad bots.
Twitter has officially announced its new Account Activity API, which will replace the existing Streaming API on August 16, but the new API severely limits what third-party Twitter apps can do.
