Two Weeks Later: Threads Introduces Read Limit

Two weeks after Twitter: Threads also introduces a read limit

Two weeks after its launch, Twitter alternative Threads has introduced a reading limit due to “spam attacks,” according to Instagram and Threads CEO Adam Mosseri. Mosseri did not specify the exact reading limit but encouraged affected users to get in touch. Many accounts on the platform have already complained about the high amount of spam being shared. Twitter CEO Elon Musk has mocked Threads for its decision, following Twitter’s own heavily criticized reading limits. Musk initially declared that non-paying Twitter accounts would only be shown 600 posts per day, but the limit was quickly increased after complaints from active accounts. Mosseri’s boss, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, announced that tens of millions of users are returning to Threads every day, despite the lack of basic functions such as a chronological timeline. The rest of the year will focus on improving the fundamentals of the platform.
