Users received a message stating, “We can’t complete this request because Twitter or our partners have identified this link as potentially harmful” when attempting to share a link to a blocked server.

Jack Sweeney, a University of Florida graduate in the IT business, is the author of the now-banned Twitter account @ElonJet and many other flight-tracking bots that aggregate flight data from public sources. Twitter has canceled Sweeney’s account and several bots, one of which sent Mark Zuckerberg status updates. Twitter has also suspended many more bots.

Gizmodo attempted to get Twitter’s opinion on the suspension of Mastodon but was unable to do so. Devastating news circulated that 3,700 Twitter employees would face layoffs, causing the PR department to feel distressed.

Elon Musk welcomes “any statement” on Twitter but has blocked certain accounts for “personal reasons.” Musk, though, is responsible for the return of many white supremacists on Twitter.

Mastodon could be an alternative to Twitter if you are looking for a new social media platform. Because it is open-source and distributed, the platform’s development is not under the authority of a single organization or group of organizations.
