Billionaire Elon Musk leaves Super League club frustrated

Social media is now a vitally important asset to Super League clubs especially with the changes IMG are making to the sport including the introduction of licences and a grading system which is good news for the likes of Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors who have massive Twitter followings.

It is good for clubs like Huddersfield Giants and Hull KR who both announced amazing social media growth going into 2023 whilst Championship club Featherstone Rovers achieved something similar.

Twitter is a useful tool for virtually every sports club and no less Super League sides.

They often announce signings via Twitter whilst they also provide play by play update of games on Twitter.

So Super League clubs have been hit hard by Twitter’s changes like so many.

You may have seen “rate limit exceed” on your Twitter feed over the last two days as Elon Musk makes changes to the app.

He has now limited verified users – those who pay for their blue tick – to viewing 6,000 Tweets per day and non-verified to just 600.

Meanwhile, new users are down to just 300.

This is allegedly so the app can carry out data scrapping but it has left users furious including one Super League club who abandoned their coverage of a game due to the change on Twitter.

That was the Huddersfield Giants who were left frustrated by Twitter as they covered their scholarship clash against London Broncos.

They abandoned their thread and had to revert to just normal Tweets.
