Chaos on Twitter as Users Face Limited Tweet Reading During Prolonged Outage

In a recent incident on Saturday night, the widely-used Micro-blogging platform Twitter encountered a significant global outage. Following this unexpected event, Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, made a fascinating revelation. According to Musk, Twitter has implemented a new policy limiting the number of tweets certain accounts can access daily. This action aims to prevent “extreme levels of data scraping and system manipulation” from happening, which could compromise the platform’s integrity.

Initially, verified accounts were restricted to reading a maximum of 6,000 posts per day. Additionally, unverified accounts will now have a limit of 600 posts per day, while newly created unverified accounts will face an even stricter restriction of 300 posts per day.

However, Musk later announced an increase in this limit to 10,000 posts per day for verified users. Unverified accounts, on the other hand, were initially limited to 600 posts per day but have now been given a limit of 1,000 posts per day. Furthermore, new unverified users will face a restriction of 500 posts per day.


And along with this Twitter made an interesting decision by temporarily halting browsing access on its web platform for individuals without accounts. The timing, however, poses the issue of whether this outage was a direct result of the backend modifications made to impose the browsing limitation.

The recent changes implemented by Twitter have left many users feeling frustrated and dissatisfied with the platform. The introduction of restrictions on Twitter usage has triggered a wave of discontent among users who rely on the platform for various purposes. Reports suggest that people have already started exploring alternative options, with BlueSy emerging as a potential substitute for dissatisfied Twitter users.

Bluesky, a platform that bears similarities to Twitter and provides comparable features, has recently made an announcement regarding a temporary halt in sign-ups. The reason behind this decision is the ongoing performance issues experienced by the platform. It is speculated that these performance issues might have arisen due to a surge in new users signing up on Bluesky.

Interestingly, this influx of new users is believed to be a direct response to the changes made by Twitter, which limit the number of tweets a user can view per day. As Bluesky’s team diligently works to address the performance concerns, users eagerly await the resolution, hoping for a seamless experience on the alternative platform.


Bluesky, the up-and-coming platform, is currently in its Beta phase, meaning access to the platform is limited. Presently, the only way to join Bluesky is by using an invite code.

The recent policy change by Twitter has triggered mixed reactions among users, leaving them contemplating their options. Many users are expressing dissatisfaction and frustration over the imposed limitations on tweet viewing. In light of this, it raises the question: are you actively seeking out alternatives like BlueSky? It would be interesting to hear your thoughts on whether you are considering BlueSky as a potential Twitter alternative. And whether you are contemplating a permanent transition to the new platform.
