Twitter limits Tweet viewing access for non-logged-In users
According to a recent update, Twitter is limiting tweet viewing access for non-logged-in-users. Well, it’s mainly in an effort to reduce the activity of data scrapers from having access to tweet data. However, some tweets are still accessible even if you don’t have an active account. Twitter has been working without fail and taking more strict measures to restrict unauthorized third-party activity and make people log in to the app.
Twitter’s idea of limiting Tweet viewing access
There is news concerning OpenAI being held accountable for accessing public tweets. Earlier, Musk was one of the investors in OpenAI. However, he stepped back later, and after that, there has been seen development in a wide range of AI tools. These tools are now very much responsible for generating heavy revenue for businesses.
Musk also showed criticism about his investment, which he claimed was non-profitable. However, he further complained that his investment helped in the establishment of OpenAI while there was no reward for him in the process. Musk didn’t like ChatGPT because he thought it was too focused on certain social issues. This made him want to create his own AI called ‘TruthGPT.’ Now, his strained relationship with OpenAI seems to be impacting Twitter’s data access decisions.
Twitter has also taken a move to raise the charges for accessing data. Plus, it seems more problematic for EU users as most of them have been accessing tweets without actually logging it to the account. The platform usually counts such users as authentic users who are on Twitter and have an active account which is, in reality, not the case.
The effort to impose such restrictions seems to create two possibilities. Either it will reduce the activity of users to engage with tweets or encourage them to create an active account on the platform. So, let’s see if it is temporary in response to criticism, as Elon mentions, or if it turns out into something exciting. Stay engaged for more interesting updates.
