Twitter Blackout Due To ‘Daily Tweet Limit’

A number of Twitter users failed to tweet on Wednesday after the platform experienced some technical difficulties. Those who were unable to tweet received a message saying; “You are over the daily limit for sending Tweets.” Down Detector, an outage-tracking website reported the glitch at just before 22:00 GMT.

Over the past few months, Twitter’s workforce got slashed by Elon Musk since his purchase of the website back in October. He acquired Twitter at $44bn (£36.5bn).

In January, the Tesla and SpaceX boss revealed that the number of employees had come down to just 2,300. This is as opposed to the 8,000 employees he found after his takeover.

Ever since he begun slashing the workforce, experts have been warning of big consequences such as this glitch. However though, it is uncertain whether the Wednesday outage came as a result of the reduced headcount.

The technical team at Twitter soon fixed the glitch as many users reported that they could tweet again. Some users said Twitter notified them that they were over the 2,400-tweet-per-day limit.

This happened despite them not having tweeted on Wednesday.

Account owners had also reported problems with Twitter messages. Several users said they could not access TweetDeck – a dashboard that can be used with the social media network. The number of people that were affected is however not known.

“Twitter may not be working as expected for some of you. Sorry for the trouble. We’re aware and working to get this fixed,” the social network company said.

Meanwhile, Down Detector also reported an outage at YouTube, which at its peak affected a reported 65,000 users.
