  • Twitter has clarified its latest move to impose limits on the platform.
  • The company says any advance notice to users about the limits would have prompted bad actors and bots to evade detection.
  • The platform says that the rate limits affect only a small percentage of users and have had a minimal effect on advertising.

Elon Musk shocked users last week when he announced “temporary” limits to the number of tweets they could read on the platform. Unregistered users were also blocked from viewing tweets. While some argued that the company is simply attempting to cut costs, Twitter has now published a blog post further clarifying the reason behind its sudden and highly unpopular move.
