TweetDeck Access Limited to Verified Users by Twitter: Changes Coming in 30 Days

TweetDeck Access Limited to Verified Users by Twitter

On Monday, Twitter initiated the rollout of an updated version of TweetDeck to address the difficulties faced by numerous users in accessing various parts of the web app over the past few days.

In addition to this update, the company made an announcement stating that within thirty days, a verification process will be implemented, thereby restricting access to TweetDeck only to Twitter Blue subscribers, verified organizations, and select individuals who have been granted verification by Twitter.

The migration to the new version ensures that all saved searches and workflows from the previous TweetDeck version will be seamlessly transferred. Users transitioning to the updated version will also have the option to import their existing columns, ensuring a smooth transition and minimal disruption to their workflow.

The new version of TweetDeck boasts enhanced features, including full composer functionality, support for Spaces, video docking capabilities, and the ability to conduct polls. However, it is important to note that the Teams functionality is currently unavailable in this updated version.

By introducing these changes and improvements, Twitter aims to provide users with a more streamlined and efficient experience on the TweetDeck platform, while also enhancing security and access control through the verification process.

Over the past few days, Elon Musk’s implementation of rate limits on tweet viewing to prevent scraping has led to the loss of several TweetDeck functions for users.

This development has raised concerns among social media managers and brands who heavily rely on the platform. With the transition of TweetDeck into a paid service within the next 30 days, these users may need to explore alternative services that offer enhanced features and functionalities.

The recent changes have been implemented by the new management to prioritize user data security. After undergoing several years of testing, TweetDeck is now available worldwide, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the new management to enhance the user experience.

However, some users have encountered challenges with the web app due to the removal of legacy APIs. This step was taken to prevent scraping activities and ensure a more secure environment for TweetDeck users. Will users look for alternatives to Twitter?

Consequently, TweetDeck has been compelled to update its platform by eliminating the legacy APIs, which has resulted in the reduction of scraping incidents.
