Twitter Discreetly Removed Login Requirements to View Tweets

It seems Twitter has removed the restriction for users to be able to view tweets only when they are logged in to their Twitter accounts. The condition was placed recently but is now scraped. Thus, anybody can now open Twitter links and see the tweets without even having a Twitter account.    

Reason for the restriction

People noticed Twitter previews available on Slack, WhatsApp, and iMessage. Musk stated that he approved these “temporary” measures to avoid data scraping. “Temporary emergency measure. We were getting data pillaged so much that it was degrading service for normal users!” Musk tweeted before.

Restriction removed

Twitter did not announce anything about this change. They never even mentioned how they would take care of data scraping from now on. Incidentally, Twitter decided to take this route just a day before Threads gets launched.

Meta’s Threads

Threads, Meta’s text-based app, also allowed people to view posts without logging in for a brief period. This could be an indication that Threads would allow people to view threads without having an account or logging in to the platform once it launches.

Twitter says

Musk put read limits of 1000 posts a day for unverified people and 10,000 posts a day for verified users over the weekend to fight against data scraping. The company mentioned in a blog post that the change shall affect a “small percentage of people” and “effects on advertising have been minimal.”
