Tweets Are Now Login-Walled

Like Šime Vidas, I have often linked out to Twitter — both my own tweets and those of others — in the many years I have been writing this website. I have never assumed the links would be available forever, but not because of petty reasons like requiring people to log in before viewing them. What a pisser.

It is possible this is a temporary measure, perhaps due to unrelated stability problems, but it is also possible this is the new normal. Facebook did something similar years ago, and Instagram and TikTok aggressively limit what people can see without logging in.
