... Now, regardless of how you try to access the website — be that the homepage or a direct link to a tweet or profile — you’re immediately met with a sign-in prompt that completely obscures your view. It doesn’t even tease the content with a swift redirect. You simply can’t see anything.

Twitter has yet to make a public announcement, so it’s currently unclear if this is an intentional update or another technical mishap. ...

I got through on one of the European based servers. It made me ever so glad I don't have twitter. I have one working mirror bookmarked. I'll probably never use it.

Elon Musk

"@elonmusk
To address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation, we’ve applied the following temporary limits:

- Verified accounts are limited to reading 6000 posts/day
- Unverified accounts to 600 posts/day
- New unverified accounts to 300/day

When I'm not logged in, visiting any links to a Twitter post (example: https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1675187969420828672), show me a login page. Can't view the post at all.

hish2021, you may like to consider the differences between post #51 and post #46, whilst reminding yourself of what you wrote in post #50...

Yes, because Elon Musk has turned off guest access, thus breaking Nitter.

I guess it was just unlucky timing... or maybe mjolnir is actually Elon... ;)

Oh ok.
https://techcrunch.com/2023/06/30/tw...o-view-tweets/

Shows how much attention I pay to twitter/facebook.

News aggregator sites will need to stop quoting/linking twitter feeds then. It won't drive me to sign up.

Twitter Monetization?

Just stop paying rents and bills. Will probably save a few bucks... for a while...

Post #46 was this link, https://www.theverge.com/2023/6/30/2...account-tweets, and a quote from there.

Post #51 was this link, https://twitter.com/MikeBenzCyber/st...54646942896128, and my comment: "Interesting take on Musk's attempts to limit data scraping"

Post #50 was a response to mjolnir's post #48.

For post #51, I was logged into my Twitter account (as I usually am). For post #50, I checked whether I could view the link I provided without logging into my Twitter account by using a standby browser.

Business genius, I tell you: https://www.morningstar.com/news/mar...-twitter-users

Maybe the beginning of the end for Twitter: https://about.instagram.com/blog/ann...m-text-feature... now that is a clever business person. Not that I'm a great fan of Zuckerberg either (still haven't signed up to FB), but I can recognise cleverness when I see it.

Edit: 5 million users have signed up in the first 4 hours!

They haven't even started advertising it yet:

What is the grand genius of business going to do about this?
