Rate limits increasing soon to 8000 for verified, 800 for unverified & 400 for new unverified https://t.co/fuRcJLifTn
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 1, 2023
According to the billionaire, the decision is “temporary” and is associated with an “extreme level” of data parsing and system manipulation. The timing of the lifting of restrictions is not called.
Musk announced the expansion of limits by a third in the near future:
- 8000 – for Twitter Blue;
- 800 – for old users;
- 400 – for new ones.
In April 2022, Musk became Twitter’s largest shareholder after acquiring a 9.2% stake for $2.89 billion. He later offered to buy Twitter for $43 billion to create “an inclusive arena for free speech.”
The $44 billion deal closed in October. The company’s previous CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal left the headquarters.
Recall that in May 2023, Musk announced that he had found a replacement for himself as CEO of Twitter. Linda Iaccarino, ex-head of advertising at NBCUniversal, has become the new CEO.
