Elon Musk imposes ‘rate limit’ on Twitter, and users are not happy about it

Social Media platform Twitter has imposed a strict ‘rate limit’ policy that will limit the tweets a user can read every day, and well, users are not happy.

Twitter owner Elon Musk shared the news in a tweet on Sunday, July 2, that these changes will “address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation.”

Whereas temporary limits will be applied to the number of tweets a user can view depending on their account’s verification status. Users with verified accounts are limited to 6,000 posts/day, unverified accounts with 600 posts/day, and new unverified accounts with 300 posts/day.

It has since been reportedly increased to 10,000 for verified accounts, 1,000 for unverified accounts, and 500 for new unverified accounts.

Some users believed that this change is a way to encourage users to have their accounts validated through the new subscription system.

Earlier this year, Twitter introduced a subscription system to boost the revenue of the micro-blogging site, wherein, in order to have your account verified you need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $8 (approx. P440) per month for what they call the Twitter Blue subscription.

These changes put a target on Musk’s back once again for “ruining” the platform.
