Elon Musk, owner of Twitter, announced a temporary limit on the number of posts users can read.
Twitter Blue subscribers can view 8,000 posts per day, while non-subscribers can only view 800 posts per day.
New unverified accounts get 400 per day, but Musk didn’t mention the account age requirement for that tier.
Post-viewing was initially limited to 6000, 600, and 300 for each category of users. Musk says guardrails are made to tackle data scraping and system manipulation. Twitter blocked access to its website for non-registered users. The announcement was made a day later.
Musk said he’s open to ideas to help stop data scraping and system manipulation. It remains unclear how long these “temporary” limitations will be enforced.
What do you think of Elon’s solution to data scraping? Will you be leaving Twitter?
