On the Twitter accounts of journalists whom he claimed revealed his location, Elon Musk said he would lift the suspension.
By The News Agenda: On Saturday, Elon Musk said that the journalists who he said didxxed his location would get their Twitter accounts back. His choice depended on a Twitter survey where he asked individuals when he ought to lift the suspension. 58.7% of the 3.6 million people who cast their votes chose “now.”
This was just a few hours after he made fun of those who were slamming him for suspending the Twitter accounts of journalists from well-known publications like CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Independent. “So inspiring to see the newfound love of freedom of speech by the press,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
The new owner of Twitter also said that Twitter Spaces will be back after it was taken down because he had a bad experience in a Spaces hosted by influential journalists. Musk tried to explain why he had decided to suspend journalists when he suddenly entered the Spaces. However, things did not go according to plan as Musk struggled to respond to journalists’ pointed questions. While a journalist was asking him a question, Musk quickly left the Spaces.
Why did Musk stop publishing journals?
The problem started when Musk took down the Twitter account @elonjet, which followed his private jet’s flights. Musk argued that he made the move after “a crazy stalker” followed a car carrying one of his children in Los Angeles, implying that his jet’s tracking was to blame.
The incident was reported on by the journalists who have been suspended, and they also shared a few links that @elonjet had posted before it was banned. The journalists’ accounts were then suspended by Musk on the grounds that they had broken Twitter’s previous privacy and doxxing policy.
