Musk suspends several journalists from Twitter

by | Dec 16, 2022

Having pronounced that preserving freedom of speech was his mission in acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk suspended or expelled several journalists – including one from The Washington Post – who cover him and his businesses, as well as a competitive platform, from Twitter, reports Digital News Daily.

The report states that the accounts of Ryan Mac of The New York Times, Drew Harwell of The Washington Post, Donie O’Sullivan of CNN, Matt Binder of Mashable, Micah Lee of The Intercept, Steve Herman of Voice of America and independent journalists Aaron Rupar, Keith Olbermann and Tony Webster were suspended.

Digital News Daily adds that the Twitter account of Mastodon, “a platform with a growing user base driven by defectors from Twitter, was also suspended.

Musk, who initially said he would not suspend or ban Twitter users who engage in tracking private jets, including his own, said the suspensions were implemented because the account owners broke Twitter’s new rules against such tracking by posting links to jet trackers on other websites.”
