Many Twitter users on Wednesday afternoon were unable to post on the site, receiving a message that read, “You are over the daily limit for sending Tweets.”
Tweets also couldn’t be posted from mobile phones. A message pops up saying, “Tweet not sent” followed by, “We’re sorry we weren’t able to send your tweet. Would you like to retry or save this tweet in drafts?” Users also weren’t able to send or load direct messages.
Some users were able to tweet by scheduling their posts using the calendar icon at the bottom of the message box.
Twitter hasn’t announced any update to its daily limits. It’s not clear if the change on Wednesday was intentional or if it’s a temporary glitch. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to Twitter’s website, the company limits the number of tweets that people can send to 2,400 per day. The daily limit for direct messages is 500.
It appears that brands are still able to send tweets.
