The Twitter drama is still in progress. In the most recent incident, the microblogging service threatened to take harsh action against users who use Twitter to advertise their other social media accounts, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Mastadon.
Twitter provided an explanation for why it is blocking users who use Twitter to promote their other social media platforms for free in a post that is no longer available.
When users break these rules, Twitter will take action by either temporarily banning their account or removing a single tweet. The new rule was designed to prevent users from endorsing rival social media networks. Be aware that users can publish links to content on other platforms on Twitter.
It’s also noteworthy that the policy makes it plain that users are permitted to run advertisements for the same third-party social media platforms. However, it was regarded as a policy violation to disclose the handles of other social networking platforms in any way. It appears that the business intended to paywall his feature.
The moment this rule went into effect, Twitter began blocking the accounts of journalists and content producers. Many people are looking for Twitter alternatives as a result of this development.
Twitter has retracted its new standards just hours after making the official announcement. Twitter, which is owned by Elon Musk, is now asking for public input on this matter. Currently, more than 80% of users have voted against this policy, and it is quite doubtful that Twitter would change its mind.
Many modifications to the platform’s functionality have been implemented after Elon Musk bought Twitter. Twitter users have experienced a lot recently, from changes to the Twitter Blue membership to the unbanning of some users who broke the Twitter code of conduct.
