Twitter Implements Mandatory Sign-In Requirement for Search Function

Users who receive search result links must now log in to Twitter to view them

One of the leading microblogging platforms, Twitter, has made a significant change by requiring all users to register before using the search function. Even if users receive links to search results, they will be prompted to sign in before being able to access them.

Previously, individuals could visit the Twitter website and search for tweets and suggested content without signing up. However, this has now changed, and visitors will only see the search option after creating an account.

This decision aims to limit access to the free API, which previously enabled people to explore the platform without registering, potentially resulting in missed opportunities for new user acquisitions for Twitter.

Since Twitter provided free API access, it may have missed out on attracting many new users who could have joined the platform if they had not been granted free access. This shift in policy represents a strategic business move for the company.

In addition to restricting the search feature for unregistered users, Twitter’s CEO, Elon Musk, has also announced the return of Twitter Fleet.

Initially launched in 2020, Fleet was a feature that allowed users to post text, share tweets, and upload multimedia content that disappeared after 24 hours, providing a more casual and ephemeral way for users to engage with the platform.
