- Twitter has stated there is a daily limit of 2,400 tweets.
- Twitter includes a daily limit of 500 direct messages and a daily follow limit of 400 accounts.
- The platform said Twitter Blue subscribers in the US can now create longer tweets.
Twitter has started limiting the number of tweets an account can send. A page on Twitter’s Help Center website states that the platform is now restricting the number of direct messages and tweets users can send daily. The site notes that although there is a daily tweet cap of 2,400, “The daily update limit is further broken down into smaller limits for semi-hourly intervals.” Retweets also contribute to that cap.
Additional restrictions listed on the Help Page website include a daily limit of 500 direct messages and a daily follow limit of 400 accounts.
According to the company, Twitter will notify you if you hit a limit by sending you an error message specifying which limit you’ve reached. You’ll be able to try again after the time limit has passed for time-based limits (such as the Direct Messages, Tweets, changes to account email, and API request limits).
Meanwhile, after launching the Twitter Blue services for Indian consumers, the platform has announced that its Twitter Blue subscribers in the US can now create longer tweets. The microblogging platform said it is increasing the tweet’s character limit to 4,000 for Twitter Blue subscribers in the US. The only other time Twitter doubled its initial 140-character limit to 280 characters was in 2017. However, it must be noted that those not subscribed to Twitter Blue can only compose a tweet with 280 characters.
On the timeline, tweets will be limited to 280 characters, and users will see a “Show more” prompt to click and read the complete Tweet. Even though only Twitter Blue subscribers have the ability to submit longer Tweets, anybody can read them and react to, retweet, and quote them. This is true whether or not you have a Twitter Blue subscription. The only people who may react and QT with up to 4,000 characters are Twitter Blue subscribers.

After a long wait, the Twitter Blue service is finally available in India. It costs Rs 650 for those using the Twitter website and Rs 900 for those using Android or iOS.
