Twitter details its new API, breaks certain features of third-party Twitter apps
Today we’re excited to announce the general availability of Account Activity API. Now developers can get started for free, upgrade to premium as they scale, and move to enterprise when they need even more subscriptions or enterprise functionality. https://t.co/AkMCDNOxbs— Twitter Dev (@TwitterDev) May 16, 2018
There’s no streaming connection capability as is used by only 1% of monthly active apps. Also there's no home timeline data. We have no plans to add that data to Account Activity API or create a new streaming service. However, home timeline data remains accessible via REST API.— Twitter Dev (@TwitterDev) May 16, 2018
Other popular apps and services like Talon, Tweetbot, Twitterrific, and Tweetings will certainly be affected as well, but hopefully, the transition to the new API will be as issue-free as possible.
