Elon Musk limits unverified users to reading 600 tweets daily

The billionaire founder of Tesla Inc., Elon Musk, has confirmed that a temporary limit has been set for the number of posts Twitter users can read daily.

According to Musk, this move seeks to tackle issues around “data and systems manipulation”.

He revealed this in a tweet on Saturday.

Musk said verified users will have access to 6,000 posts daily, while unverified and new users will be allowed to read 600 and 300 posts, respectively.

But Musk did not disclose when the temporary restrictions would commence nor for how long they would last.

To address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation, we’ve applied the following temporary limits:

– Verified accounts are limited to reading 6000 posts/day
– Unverified accounts to 600 posts/day
– New unverified accounts to 300/day

“To address extreme levels of data scraping and system manipulation, we’ve applied the following temporary limits,” Musk tweeted.

“Verified accounts are limited to reading 6,000 posts per day. Unverified accounts to 600 posts per day. New unverified accounts to 300 per day.”

In a related tweet, the billionaire added that limits to users’ readership would be increased subsequently by about 33 percent.
