Elon Musk Imposes New Twitter Rate Limit, Angers Crypto Community

Elon Musk Imposes Read Rate Limit on Twitter

Elon Musk recently imposed a read rate limit on Twitter, sparking outrage amongst the Crypto Twitter community. Verified accounts are now limited to reading 6,000 posts per day, while unverified accounts have been reduced to 600 posts daily and newly created unverified accounts can only read 300 posts each day. This decision was made in order to curb the “extreme levels of data scraping” that were occurring on the platform.

Dogecoin Sees Unexpected Growth Amidst Turmoil

Despite the uproar caused by this news, Dogecoin (DOGE) continues its phased consolidation with 1.2% growth over the last 24 hours and a 3% increase since last week. At press time, DOGE is trading at $0.678 per coin.

Crypto Celebrities React To Musk’s Decision

Crypto investors on Twitter have theorized that this decision may be linked to Elon Musk’s ongoing clash with OpenAI but many prominent personalities in the industry have spoken out against it including Binance CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao who commented that “viewing should not be limited, posting and commenting should be” as humans generally do not post more than 800 posts per day – except himself perhaps! On-chain sleuth ZachXBT also shared a screenshot of an error message he received when attempting to access tweets after Elon’s announcement as an ironic thank you towards The Dogefather for his latest stunt.

Prevention Of System Manipulation & AI Retrieval Of Data

The rationale behind this decision is twofold; firstly it prevents system manipulation by limiting how much data can be gathered at once and secondly it prevents artificial intelligence from retrieving large amounts of data for their language models – something which was becoming increasingly common before this restriction was put in place.


Overall, Elon Musk’s decision has divided opinion amongst users of Crypto Twitter but it appears that it won’t be reversed anytime soon so users will need to adjust their reading habits accordingly or risk running into problems!
