Huge Rule Change at Twitter: ‘We Recognize That Many of Our Users Are Active on Other Social Media Platforms. However … ‘

Musk’s enemies are at it again, arguing that he is not a supporter of free speech after he established a new regulation to prohibit Twitter accounts that exist just to lure people to other social media sites.

Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion on the grounds that it was a crucial instrument for the United States and the rest of the globe to exercise their right to free expression.

In fact, he was so committed to the principles of free expression that his first Tweet as the owner of the social media behemoth consisted of only four words: “The Bird is Freed.”

But Musk has also been restricting individuals, most recently by suspending a group of left-leaning journalists whom he accused of doxing the real-time whereabouts of his family and endangering their lives.

A few days later, however, the Twitter CEO reversed his decision and removed the suspensions when Twitter users criticized his actions.

Twitter is undergoing further transformations. On Sunday, Twitter announced another tweak to its rules, prompting left-wingers to accuse Musk of duplicity about concerns for free expression.

Twitter notified its users on Sunday of a new policy titled “Promotion of alternative social platforms policy,” which is a new guideline regarding the promotion of other social media platforms on Twitter.

“We recognize that many of our users are active on other social media platforms. However, we will no longer allow free promotion of certain social media platforms on Twitter,” the new policy alert began.

“Specifically,” the announcement continued, “we will remove accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms and content that contains links or usernames for the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post.”

Despite the accusations of critics, Twitter clarified that this new policy is not meant to remove all links to other sites.

More on this story via The Western Journal:

“We still allow cross-posting content from any social media platform. Posting links or usernames to social media platforms not listed above are also not in violation of this policy,” the announcement concluded.
