Notice of reduced Lite plan (free plan) features due to Twitter API changes

Update date: May 31, 2023 

Please refer to this notice for details about restrictions to paid plan features. (updated May 16, 2023)

Posting features have been discontinued on the Lite plan (free plan). As a result, additional restrictions to features for users are now in place. Please check the new restrictions. (updated May 31, 2023)


Thank you for using SocialDog.

Due to changes to the Twitter API, features available to users on the SocialDog Lite plan (free plan) have been greatly reduced.

We apologize to all our users for this sudden change.

In line with our product mission to "create a world where anyone can become the protagonist," we have offered a large number of features on the free plan up until now. However, the transition of the Twitter API to a paid service has made it impossible for us to continue to offer the free plan in its current form due to the very high usage fees involved. As a result, we have reluctantly had to greatly reduce the features available on the free plan.

We would like to thank you for using SocialDog features such as follower management and Keyword Monitor up until now.

If you would like to continue using features that are no longer available on the free plan, please consider changing to a paid plan.


The changes to the Lite plan (free plan) are as follows.

 Feature  Change
 Number of scheduled Tweets

May 16, 2023 (changes will be rolled out gradually)
