Twitter suspended Twitter accounts of journalists from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, The Intercept and Mashable and other news publications on Thursday.

The accounts of these journalists were suspended a day after Twitter altered its policies on accounts that doxx live locations.

Earlier, Musk’s son was stalked in LA that led the billionaire to change the rules.

The New York Times said in a statement asking Twitter to reinstate their journalists’ accounts.

CNN also asked Twitter to provide the reason behind suspending the account of its journalist, Donnie O’Sullivan.

The news of Mastodon’s suspension from Twitter was shared by some journalists, after which their accounts were also revoked.

Despite claiming to stand by absolute free speech, Elon Musk has gained criticism for showing a bias while implementing policies.
