Twitter suspends
TWITTER has abruptly suspended the accounts of several high-profile journalists who cover the social media platform and Elon Musk, who acquired the company in October. The accounts of Ryan Mac of ‘The New York Times’, Donie O’Sullivan of ‘CNN’, Drew Harwell of ‘The Washington Post’, Matt Binder of ‘Mashable’, Micah Lee of ‘The Intercept’, Steve Herman of ‘Voice of America’, and independent journalists Aaron Rupar, Keith Olbermann as well as Tony Webster had all been suspended as of Thursday evening, ‘CNN’ reported.
The journalists, however, found a backdoor way onto the platform through the website’s audio function, and hours later of suspension faced off with Musk in a Twitter Space audio discussion before an audience of more than 30,000 listeners. “You doxx, you get suspended. End of story. That’s it,” Musk said to one of the suspended journalists, explaining his latest policy to the group before he left minutes after having joined the discussion. Musk was referring to Twitter’s latest rule change about accounts that track private jets, including one owned by Musk himself, which was put in place on Wednesday.
