Twitter Now Limits How Many Tweets You Can Read

Twitter has recently implemented a controversial change that imposes limitations on the number of tweets users can post each day. As one of the largest social media platforms, Twitter revolutionized the concept of endless scrolling, which has become ubiquitous in various apps, including TikTok for video content. Users can spend countless hours scrolling through Twitter, discovering new content as long as they follow enough people. While it can be a significant time sink, it also serves as a valuable tool for staying updated on the world, individuals, and events.

However, Twitter's recent temporary change has raised concerns. In response to addressing "extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation," Twitter's CEO announced that users would be restricted to a certain number of daily posts. Initially, the limit was set at 6,000 tweets per day for verified users and 600 tweets per day for unverified users. Following significant backlash, the CEO, Elon Musk, revised the limits to 8,000 tweets per day for verified users and 800 tweets per day for unverified users. However, considering the fast-paced nature of Twitter and the sheer volume of tweets users encounter, these limits are quite restrictive, particularly for unverified users. Once the limit is reached, users are unable to load new tweets on their timeline, although some claim to still see replies to their own tweets. While this change is temporary, the fact that it is a daily limit suggests it may persist for several days or even longer.


It's another controversial change introduced by Elon Musk's iteration of Twitter, and it seems to be causing frustration among even his most devoted followers. This alteration lacks tangible benefits and, in fact, actively harms the app. It's important to note that ads are delivered through tweets, constituting a significant portion of the company's revenue. Whether this change will drive users to seek alternative social media platforms remains uncertain, but it adds to the growing list of grievances voiced by Twitter users.
