Reddit had a year of a rollercoaster
Reddit had a bit of a bumpy ride this year, especially when it comes to its API, which is like the behind-the-scenes tech stuff that makes the apps work.. Some apps that many people liked had to close or start charging money because of new rules from Reddit. One popular app called Apollo can’t connect to Reddit anymore. The person who made Apollo, Christian Selig, said the new rules would cost him a crazy $20 million every year, much more than what people pay for the app. So, unfortunately, Apollo is going away by June.
Another well-liked app, BaconReader, also had to shut down because of these changes in the tech rules. Sync and Reddit told their users they’re going to stop working soon. But don’t worry too much—two other apps will still be around, although they’ll ask users to pay a bit.
This all happened after Twitter made it harder for other apps to use its info. Now, Reddit is saying, “If you want to use our special tech stuff, you’ve got to pay for it.” But here’s the good news: If you’re a developer making cool Reddit-related apps or studying Reddit just for fun (not to make money), you can still use Reddit’s tech stuff for free.
And here’s a surprising twist: Hackers caused trouble for Reddit. They threatened to release a bunch of important data unless Reddit pays up and goes back to how they used to charge for using their tech stuff. It’s like a digital ransom demand, and it adds another twist to Reddit’s interesting year.
