Twitter Fowl Struggling with Bing Robots

X, well,, is now blocking Bing Search, namely Bingbot, from crawling and accessing content posted on, on the X platform. Twitter namely added to its robots.txt file a directive to disallow Bingbot from crawling the content on its platform.

Right here is a screenshot of its robots.txt file:

This was as soon as spotted first, I gain, by Mike Ginley who posted this on X, “Twitter blocking Bing is an exciting stir…” Glenn Gabe dug into the timeline, noticing this was as soon as a fairly most novel change by Bing:

Of route, a place show on Bing entirely displays 180,000 Twitter URLs showing up:

But with Google, a place show displays 422 million URLs.

Google Twitter Assign Show

Back in July Twitter blocked Google main to an huge fall in visibility for Twitter in Google Search. About a days later, Twitter reversed that change.

I instruct Twitter / X would not desire web page traffic from Bing Search? I mean, in the event that they desire more efficient indexing, appropriate exercise IndexNow?
