Twitter announced its new API price earlier today saying that its basic tier with “low usage” will cost $100 per month. When developers trying to clarify the new rules went to the developer forum website, they discovered that the site had been placed behind a login.
Twittercommunity.com made it easy for developers to ask questions about Twitter APIs and get tips on building apps for the platform. Twitter staff also responded to developers posting bugs and issues to update them on company-level developments. It also served as a portal for some Twitter developer-related announcements.
Several developers pointed out on Twitter that the site was down, asking the company to provide an update.
It’s unclear if Twitter put the developer forum behind a connection or if it’s a bug. Since last night, a lot has broken on the platform, including people having trouble posting tweets and accessing replies and direct messages. It could also be because the company rolled out an update to allow Twitter Blue users to post 4,000 character tweets.
A few hours ago, Elon Musk tweeted that the social network was facing “multiple internal and external issues” but that they should be resolved late in US hours.
However, at the time of writing people are still facing problems accessing different parts of the service. Hopefully Twitter fixes all these issues soon.
