Why not offer share endpoint as an affordable paid API?

#1

Twitter announced that in late November, they would discontinue the Tweet share count API endpoint.

This is a sad news, as the share count API endpoint was a very useful indicator for users whatsoever.

My suggestion : Twitter should offer share endpoint as an affordable paid API.

Agree ?

Thanks for the suggestion. As we explained, there are significant technical challenges and costs to (re)building this feature on a new infrastructure, so at the moment there’s nothing to announce about changes.

We have of course paid attention to the comments on this topic, and appreciate your idea. Stay tuned for the future.
