JUST IN: Twitter Telling Users They’re ‘Over Daily Tweet Limit’


Many Twitter users have been unable to send tweets since Wednesday afternoon, instead getting an automated message saying they were “over the daily limit for sending Tweets,” even for users who hadn’t posted yet for the day.

Many users reported that they were suddenly unable to tweet on Wednesday, starting around 2 PM PT.

Our correspondent also experienced this and got the error message that the daily post limit had been exhausted.

Right now, the bug appears to be affecting all non-scheduled tweets. Tweets that were scheduled previously or ones scheduled moving forward still seem to get through, from our testing. The error is consistent across the web and mobile versions of the app.

The limit for tweets per day is currently set to 2,400, according to Twitter’s Help Center. Downdetector, a site that tracks technical outages for apps, also showed a spike in user reports of trouble on the site, rising to 8,500 just after 5 p.m. New York time.

Twitter users have seen their fair share of erratic policy changes and weird bugs lately, but today they can’t even tweet through it.

On mobile, users are seeing an error stating that Twitter wasn’t “able to send your Tweet.” On the web, users are seeing an error informing them that they’ve exceeded the tweet limit — a message that suggests this could be an error or bug related to Twitter’s API configurations somehow.


Twitter actually does have a daily tweet limit but you won’t exceed it until you cross the threshold of 2,400 tweets in a single day.
