Twitter tries to fix its latest mistake as Meta readies its Threads launch

Twitter’s most recent guffaws include setting daily rate limits on tweets and forcing users to be logged in if they want to even view tweets at all. But it seems that with the launch of Meta’s supposed Twitter-killer Threads, Twitter is trying to roll back at least one of those changes.

According to TechCrunch, not only are users able to view tweets without an account (or at least being logged into one), tweet preview links are properly unfurling again in other apps like Slack, WhatsApp, and iMessage. According to former Twitter CEO Elon Musk, Twitter enacted these limits to combat “extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation.” He went on to explain that it was a “temporary emergency measure,” due to “getting data pillaged so much that it was degrading service for normal users!”
