File photo dated 27/12/10 of the logo of social networking website Twitter is seen displayed on the screen of an iPhone smartphone. Twitter has failed to take legacy blue checkmarks off the social media platform after it committed to remove them on April 1. The business, led by billionaire owner Elon Musk, has also confused many people by making older verified users indistinguishable from those who have paid for the checkmark.

Twitter to stop TweetDeck access for unverified users

TweetDeck is to become the next part of Twitter to be limited to users who have paid for verified status.

The application, which allows users to manage multiple feeds and searches, will only by accessible to verified users in 30 days, according to a tweet from Twitter Support on Monday evening.

A new version of TweetDeck has been made available with the tweet giving instructions to update.

The announcement comes two days after Twitter owner Elon Musk, who took over the company in October, said users were being limited to reading 600 posts a day.

He said the limit, which had been introduced “to address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation”, had been increased to 1,000 later on Saturday.

The restrictions could result in users being locked out of Twitter for the day after scrolling through several hundred tweets.

Verified users – who have paid for a subscription to Twitter Blue or are considered “notable” – can read up to 10,000 posts daily after initially being limited to 6,000.

Twitter faces a fresh rival with Facebook owner launching a rival app this week.

Threads, which is described as a “text-based conversation app… where communities come together”, is linked to Instagram and is available for pre-order in the Apple App Store.
