Twitter Limits Tweets: Jack Dorsey Reacts with Hilarious Suggestions
In a surprising turn of events, Twitter has imposed restrictions on the number of tweets users can view per day. This decision has sparked reactions from various individuals, including Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter.
The announcement came from Elon Musk, billionaire chairman of Twitter, who stated that these limits were necessary to combat data scraping and system manipulation. Initially, verified accounts could only read 6,000 posts per day, while unverified accounts had a limit of 600 posts for regular users and 300 for new handles.
However, it seems like the view limits have been adjusted since then. Verified accounts now have the privilege to view up to 10,000 tweets daily! Unverified accounts are not left behind either; they can enjoy reading up to 1,000 posts each day. And as for those fresh-faced newcomers with unverified handles? They get a generous allowance of 500 posts per day!
Dorsey’s Response: “Managing Twitter is Hard!”
“Running Twitter is hard,” tweeted Dorsey sympathetically. “I don’t wish that stress upon anyone.”
Aww…how considerate! It’s heartwarming to see such empathy from someone who knows firsthand what it takes to run this social media giant.
Dorsey Suggests Testing Decentralized Protocols
But wait! There’s more! In another tweet (because why stop at just one?), Dorsey suggested that the team should explore decentralized protocols as a solution:
“And I do hope they consider building on truly censorship-resistant open protocols like bitcoin and nostr [sic] to help ease that burden. Good for all, and critical to preserve the open internet.”
Oh Jack, always thinking outside the box! He believes that embracing decentralized technology is essential for a free internet space. And who can blame him? After all, he’s not just a Twitter co-founder; he’s also an advocate of crypto and web3!
The Impact on Crypto: Will This Change Shake Things Up?
Now let’s address the elephant in the room (or should we say “the bird”?) – how will these new restrictions affect the crypto community?
Twitter plays a crucial role in cryptocurrency engagement, with ICO announcements, bounty campaign promotions, and project news being shared extensively on this platform.
Luckily, it seems like these view limits haven’t caused too much chaos…yet. According to Coingecko data, the total crypto market cap has only risen by 0.4% in the last 24 hours.
