In a surprising move, Twitter now requires users to have an account in order to view tweets.

If individuals attempt to access a tweet without being logged into their Twitter account, they will be redirected to a sign-in screen, effectively blocking them from viewing the content. This recent change has caused concern among users and sparked speculation about Twitter's motives.

Although Twitter has not yet officially commented on the change, some speculate that it may be a deliberate strategy to increase user numbers. As the platform faces difficulties in growing its user base, pushing silent viewers to create accounts could be seen as a way to increase engagement and overall user activity.

However, experts say the move could have negative consequences for Twitter. By making tweets less accessible to non-users, search engine algorithms may rank Twitter content lower, resulting in less active traffic from search engines such as Google. In addition, many find this change simply annoying and unnecessary because it limits public access to content previously available without an account.

Also Elon Musk has actively promoted that artificial intelligence tools not use Twitter data, and has criticized other companies for allegedly illegally using Twitter data. It is unclear whether his influence played any role in imposing this new account requirement.
