It is possible that charging for TweetDeck, which was previously free and is extensively used by businesses and news organizations to quickly monitor content, might bring a cash boost to Twitter, which has struggled to maintain its advertising revenue under the ownership of billionaire Elon Musk.
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

TweetDeck is widely used by businesses and news organizations to easily monitor material.
This decision was made just a few days after Musk made the announcement that users, both verified and unverified, would have a cap on the number of posts per day that they could read “to address extreme levels of data scraping and system manipulation.”
His declaration resulted in a strong outcry from people on Twitter, and advertising experts stated that it would weaken new CEO Linda Yaccarino, who began her post one month ago.
In order to authenticate their account, individuals are required to pay $8 each month, while companies must pay $1,000 per month.
