X is deleting images and links posted before 2014

X is deleting images and links posted before 2014..

X (formerly Twitter) been going through the biggest rebranding, and with it some major changes. Not everyone has been happy with the changes other than the recent payout to users with tweets that have more than 5 million impressions. The latest change on X is actually affecting photos that were shared before 2014 as they're no longer showing up on the platform.

The apparent glitch, which led to the removal of images, was brought to light by X users including tech writer Tom Coates, who in a post on August 19, said that the platform has deleted all media shared before 2014.

“More vandalism from Elon Musk. Twitter has now removed all media posted before 2014. That's — so far — almost a decade of pictures and videos from the early 2000s removed from the service,” Coates wrote.

It was seen that while the post and the text — “If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever” — was still there, the photo could not be accessed. The post instead featured the t.co URL, which is X’s link-shortening domain. For those who don’t know, X uses the t.co domain “as part of a service to protect users from harmful activity, to provide value for the developer ecosystem, and as a quality signal for surfacing relevant, interesting Tweets”.

X removes photos, links before 2014
According to a report by The Verge, any images or links that were shared using Twitter's built-in URL shortener have disappeared from the platform. This issue was pointed out by X user Tom Coates who also shared the search results for his posts from before 2014 that has missing images and links. So either the image doesn't show at all or the hyperlink is removed so the link is inaccessible.
