“Experiment, build, and scale your business with 1M Tweets per month, including our powerful real-time Filtered/Stream and Full Archive Search endpoints,” it added. Several users expressed their thoughts on this development on Twitter.
“That’s cool, but you already killed most Twitter apps by now. And 5K is still too much for most of us. A 1K plan could make sense… but then again it’s too late,” a user commented.
“5k is like half of our monthly budget as a startup… quite out of touch pricing,” another user said. Moreover, one more user mentioned, “No developer will ever trust Twitter again”.
