Twitter Users Told They’ve Hit Daily Post Limit In Latest Outage Since Musk Takeover – Twitter experienced a one-hour long disruption during which users were unable to post immediately to the website. This is the latest outage to affect the social media platform since Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition. Starting from around 10 PM GMT on Wednesday, users who attempted to tweet received a message from the platform indicating that they had reached their daily limit, despite many of them claiming that they had not tweeted at all that day.
The outage impacted not only the posting of new tweets but also retweets and responses. Additionally, some users encountered difficulties in accessing their direct messages. A temporary solution was found by some individuals, who were able to schedule their tweets to be posted a minute later. Eventually, the service was restored around 11pm GMT. Tweetdeck, a Twitter service that lets users view multiple Twitter columns in their browser, was also unavailable.
There has been speculation that the product will become exclusive to Twitter Blue subscribers, but the company has yet to announce whether that is the case. Since Musk assumed control of the company, Twitter has discontinued its press department, however,a news outlet sent inquiries to an email address previously utilized by the company to respond to press questions. US tech publication The Information reported Musk told Twitter staff to pause “new feature development” to maximise stability on the platform amid the outage.
Hours after Twitter introduced a new feature for Twitter Blue subscribers that enables them to post tweets with a maximum of 4,000 characters, an interruption occurred. The company was also set to conclude its free API access on February 9th. This alteration will result in the termination of numerous services such as Twitter thread readers, automated responses, and automatic tweet removal services.
