A fragment from a news article:

While sharing jokes and memes on social media sites by these renowned personalities is completely fine, there is always a limit to as of what is considered to be funny and not in a bad taste.

From the perspective of time "as of" means: from, up to and on.

Please explain "as of" in this context.

Thank you.

    Explanation: clumsy, ungrammatical writing by a lazy journalist, possibly not a native speaker, or alternatively hasty or careless editing. – Michael Harvey May 21 at 11:17
  • @MichaelHarvey sir, could you tell me what should have been written? – Kumar sadhu May 21 at 11:19

    Looks like they were trying to write "a limit as to what is considered..." and ended up making a mistake. There's also a mistake later on, when they say "in a bad taste" instead of just "in bad taste." – Showsni May 21 at 11:20

    Suggests either non-native or clumsy writer. – Michael Harvey May 21 at 11:27
  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's based on the false premise that as of has been used grammatically or idiomatically. – Jason Bassford May 21 at 13:58
