Twitter has said it would deactivate the accounts of other social media platforms.
According to Twitter Support, accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms like Facebook, Instagram and others would be removed.
“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 tweet read.
“Specifically, 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.
“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.”
This comes days after Twitter deactivated the accounts of many journalists who reported about Elon Musk following the suspension of the ElonJet account, a page that was tracking Musk’s personal plane.
