James tweeted: “Elon Musk is complaining about extreme levels of Twitter manipulation bruh.”
He spoke out after Elon announced new restrictions for Twitter users.
The billionaire revealed today he would be temporarily limiting the number of tweets people can read in a day on the popular social media platform.
Elon – who took over Twitter in October – said that verified accounts are being limited to reading 6,000 posts a day.
Unverified accounts can only read 600 posts a day.
Furthermore, new unverified accounts are limited to 300 posts per day
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said Twitter had imposed the “temporary limit” to “address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation”.
Elon has previously slammed artificial intelligence firms like OpenAI, the owner of ChatGPT, for using the platform’s data to train their large language models.
Many logging onto Twitter were met with a message that read “Rate limit exceeded.”
The hashtags “Twitterdown” and “RIP” Twitter began trending as frustrated users were faced with the message.
The change prevented them from seeing new tweets in their feeds, sending out their own tweets, and even sending a DM.
Elon isn’t the only person James has blasted on social media.
Last week, he slammed ABC for shortchanging The Chase compared to Jeopardy!
They tweeted: “Most interesting thing was the giant increase for #TheChase.
“It was up 25% in the 18-49 demo from the last episode and up nearly 60% in total viewers.
“It’s still a shame that The Chase wasn’t paired with Jeopardy Masters.”
JAMES SPEAKS OUT
James, 38, then buzzed in, agreeing that The Chase – which airs at 9pm Eastern on Thursdays and kicked off its third season on June 29 – got a raw deal.
He quote tweeted: “If only those two shows had some commonality that would suggest a shared fanbase.”
Sara Haines joins the contestants as the show’s host.
Ken Jennings was formerly a Chaser but stepped down as he was Daily Double booked.
