In a new Reddit thread, Apollo developer Christian Selig has shared details about what Reddit is saying it will cost to use the updated API.
For some context, he shared 50 million API calls with Imgur is $166 – compared to $12,000 for Reddit and $42,000 for Twitter.
For reference, I pay Imgur, a site similar to Reddit in userbase and media, $166 for the same 50 million API calls.
Digging into more details, Christian estimates that with this change, Reddit is set to charge third-party devs about 20x higher cost for API calls than what native users like cost Reddit.
Fascinatingly, and sadly, my buddy and colleague Zac Hall reminded me that the official Reddit app itself came from an acquisition of the popular third-party Reddit client Alien Blue.
