Below you can find a couple of examples illustrating how to calculate the cost of requests. So you can determine the approximate total consumption and choose which Twitter API costs suits you best.
First example: let's say you want to download a Twitter profile and 80 of its tweets:
The estimated cost of the request will be 9 + 1 * 80 = 89 mentions
9 is the cost of profile data
1 is the cost of a tweet
80 is the number of tweets
If the Twitter user had no tweets at all, then the cost of the request would be 9 mentions. You should only pay for profile data.
Second example: let's say you would like to find 100 tweets, then:
The estimated cost of the request will be 7 + 1 * 100 = 107 mentions
7 charged per search query
1 is the cost per tweet
100 is the number of tweets you expect to receive
If fewer tweets were found during the search, you only pay for the number of found tweets.

We recommend you kindly use our mentions calculator to determine Twitter API cost you should pay. Just input the needed type of data and the assumed data volume, and the app will calculate the total amount of mentions. Knowing this value, you can choose the appropriate tariff plan.
We also advise you to check our Twitter API documentation, where you can find detailed information on how to start using our API (API operation algorithm, helpful tips, sample requests and responses for each element, and much more).

We can infer that Data365 Twitter API suggests a very convenient and client-oriented pricing policy, and the company's sales team can help you with any questions you have.
