Twitter subscribers get exclusive access to TweetDeck.

Twitter Inc has confirmed a forthcoming change regarding the accessibility of TweetDeck. Starting in 30 days, only users with verified status on the platform will be able to access TweetDeck.

TweetDeck has been highly regarded as a valuable resource for social media enthusiasts, professionals, and corporations. Its unique features, such as handling various feeds and searches, have made it a popular platform for those looking to simplify their Twitter activities.

The Release of TweetDeck 2.0

TweetDeck 2.0 brings numerous major features and changes to the social media management application.

Users can expect new features like video docking and an improved Tweet composer. One notable change is the temporary disabling of TweetDeck Teams, but Twitter has assured users that Teams will be reintroduced in the coming weeks.

This announcement comes shortly after Twitter Chairman Elon Musk implemented a change limiting unverified users to reading only 1000 posts per day. Musk has been actively making changes to improve user experience and address platform issues since taking ownership of the company.

Twitter’s recent updates and changes continue to impact the social media landscape. Verified users who have subscribed to Twitter Blue or are considered “notable” have seen an increase in their daily post limit.

Initially set at 6,000 posts, verified users can now read up to 10,000 posts per day, allowing for more engagement. Currently, all users, regardless of their Twitter Blue status, can access the new version of TweetDeck without immediate restrictions.

Competition Heats Up for Twitter

The competition in the social media industry is intensifying, and Twitter is facing a dynamic landscape with various rivals vying for user attention and engagement.

One major competitor is Facebook from Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ: META), which has a large user base and an established ecosystem of platforms and services.

Facebook’s recent launch of a rival app called Threads adds another layer of competition. With its extensive resources and user reach, Facebook has the potential to pose a significant challenge to Twitter’s market position.

Other microblogging platforms have also emerged as strong contenders in the social media space. Following Musk’s announcement, Bluesky, a platform backed by Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey, experienced a surge in traffic. Users flocked to Bluesky, leading to “record-high traffic” on the day of the announcement.

Another platform that saw a significant increase in traffic is Mastodon, a decentralized social network. Mastodon CEO Eugen Rochko revealed that the platform’s active user base surged by at least 110,000 on Sunday, July 2.
