Elon Musk weighed in on Twitter’s suspension of journalists who reported on his dispute with a user who covered his private jet travel, claiming that the reporters posted “my exact real-time location, basically assassination coordinates.”
“You doxx, you get suspended, end of story,” Musk said in a Twitter Spaces conversation with journalists on Thursday.
But one of the journalists who was suspended, Drew Harwell of The Washington Post, told Musk, “You are suggesting that we’re sharing your address, which is not true.” He said that they posted a link to @ElonJet, the account that had used publicly available data to report on movement of Musk’s private aircraft. He noted that the @ElonJet account is now banned on Twitter.
Twitter’s action drew a chorus of criticism, not just CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post, which employ some of the suspended journalists, but from lawmakers.
Twitter on Thursday abruptly suspended the accounts of several journalists including from the Washington Post, CNN and the New York Times as well as media pundit Keith Olbermann. All have covered Elon Musk in the past.
