CNN reports that on the evening of Dec. 15, several high-profile journalists were banned from Twitter.
In a series of tweets, Musk claimed that he permanently suspended their accounts for violating his new "doxxing" policy.
Doxxing is when someone's personal information or location is shared online.
TechCrunch reports that banned Twitter users are still able to use its group audio feature, Spaces.
The banned journalists and Jack Sweeney,
who famously tracked Musk's jet, started a
group chat in Spaces to discuss their suspensions.
Musk joined in and criticized not only those who were accused of doxxing, but those who reported on it in regard to the Twitter CEO. .
After the journalists asked for clarification and
challenged Musk over regulation inconsistencies, Musk reiterated his doxxing claims and abruptly left the chat. .
Later on, the Spaces feature
became unavailable to users. .
When asked by a Twitter user what was going on with
the audio feature, Musk claimed that they were
"fixing a legacy bug," and it should be working again soon.
The entire situation has led many to criticize Musk's actions as hypocritical since he is a self-proclaimed "free speech absolutist."
