Over the weekend, Elon Musk limited the number of tweets users can read in a day, which he said was to prevent data scraping. While this measure has affected all Twitter users, TweetDeck users in particular are today reporting major problems, including notifications and entire columns failing to load.
Musk initially enforced read-limits of 6,000 daily posts for verified users and 600 daily posts for unverified users. Hours later, he increased these limits to 10,000 tweets and 1,000 tweets, respectively. Given that TweetDeck loads up multiple tweets through various columns simultaneously, it’s likely that the effects of the read restrictions are amplified within TweetDeck.
Tweetdeck… I don’t know, folks. I liked Elon, but it is getting more and more weird. pic.twitter.com/bA6EAPtiQp

Thanks Elon for effectively killing TweetDeck. Not like a bunch of us use that for work or anything. pic.twitter.com/Ha1zsfwfHj
