Twitter explains why it sabotaged your feed without notice – but no end is in sight

On July 1, with no warning and little reason why, Elon Musk – the CEO of Twitter – said that Twitter would be imposing strict rate limits on how many posts users could view. Now we have an official reason why, but it’s still unclear how long this will last.

When Musk put out his tweet he said that Verified accounts would be limited to reading 6,000 posts a day, unverified users to 600, and new unverified users to 300. His explanation for this sudden change was that it was “to address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation.” The limit has since been expanded to 10,000 for verified and 1,000 for unverified users, but exactly what the problem is remained uncertain.
