Twitter has imposed temporary restrictions on the number of tweets users can read. Thousands of people complained about the access to the platform after twitter limited the number of tweets unverified users can read to 1,000 per day. Elon Musk tweeted that only verified users will be able to view 10,000 posts per day.
The hashtag #twitterdown started trending in some parts of the world as many people face problems logging into the platform. According to Downdetector, a website that tracks online disruptions, as many as 7,500 users reported problems at one point as they couldn’t log in after the new rules were put into place.
Musk Says He is Doing a Good Deed
Meanwhile, Elon Musk retweeted a tweet from a parody account where it urged the users to go outside or spend some time with the family as twitter has become more and more addictive. The parody account said the reason Musk restricted the number of tweets users can view, is because he wanted people to go outside or spend time with their families.
