Elon Musk Limits Twitter Reading to 1000 Tweets Per Day

Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla and Twitter, has announced that he will be limiting the number of tweets that users can read per day. The new policy, which went into effect on July 3, 2023, caps the number of tweets that a user can see at 1000 for old accounts and 500 for new accounts. Users who purchase the Twitter Blue subscription service, which costs $8 per month, will be able to see 10,000 tweets per day.


Musk has said that the reason for the limit is to prevent AI companies from scraping Twitter data. He has accused these companies of using Twitter data to train their own AI models, which he believes could give them an unfair advantage over Twitter. Musk has also said that he believes that limiting Twitter reading will help users to be more productive and to spend less time on the platform.


The new policy has been met with mixed reactions from users. Some users have welcomed the limit, saying that it will help them to focus on more important things. Others have criticized the limit, saying that it is an infringement on their freedom of speech.


This is not the first time that Musk has made changes to Twitter since he acquired the company last year. In April, he announced that he would be making Twitter's API more expensive for third-party developers. He has also said that he wants to make Twitter a more "free speech" platform, which has led to concerns that he could allow harmful content to be shared on the platform.


It remains to be seen how the new Twitter reading limit will affect the platform. Some users may find that it helps them to be more productive, while others may find it frustrating. It is also possible that the limit could lead to more people using Twitter Blue, which could boost Twitter's revenue.


In addition to limiting Twitter reading, Musk has also made other changes to the platform since he acquired it. He has fired several high-level executives, including the CEO, and he has also made changes to the company's content moderation policies. It remains to be seen what other changes Musk will make to Twitter in the future.
