Twitter forces you to sign in to view tweets

Twitter will now require users to have an account on the social media platform to view tweets, a move that CEO Elon Musk called a “temporary emergency measure”.

Users who try to view content on the platform will be asked to sign up for an account or log into an exiting account to see their favorite tweets. “We were getting data pillaged so much that it was degrading service for normal users!” Elon said in a tweet.

He added that hundreds of organizations or more were scraping Twitter data “extremely aggressively, affecting user experience. Musk has previously expressed displeasure at artificial intelligence Firms like OpenAl, the owner of ChatGPT, using Twitter’s data to train their large language models.

“We absolutely will take legal action against those who stole our data & look forward seeing them in court, which is (optimistically) 2 to 3 years from now,” Musk added.
