Twitter will soon increase the reading limits for verified, unverified and newly verified users – Musk

Twitter applied temporary reading limits to address “extreme levels” of data scraping and system manipulation, Musk said in a Twitter post. In his earlier post, he wrote that “verified accounts are limited to reading 6000 posts/day”, “Unverified accounts to 600 posts/day” and “New unverified accounts to 300/day”.

Later he shared a post that read “Rate limits increasing soon to 8000 for verified”, “800 for unverified” and “400 for new unverified”.

This move comes after Twitter announced that it will require users to have an account on social media platforms to view tweets, which Musk said on Friday was a “temporary emergency measure”.

He expressed his concern over unauthenticated access to social media on Friday and wrote ” Any social media companies that allow unauthenticated access will become bot-strewn hellscapes as soon as they become relevant”.

Musk has earlier expressed his displeasure with AI firms like OpenAI, for using Twitter’s data to train their large language models and this move seems no less motivated by this displeasure. Neither Twitter nor Musk has yet explained, whether scrolling a post will count for a read or interacting with it will count as a read. Amid rising confusion, its expected to motivate Twitter users to look for other social media platforms.

Musk tweeted Friday that the requirement to sign in would be “unblocked shortly” and was necessary due to “EXTREME levels of data scraping”.
