Twitter locks out top journalists covering Elon Musk - BBC News

Twitter accounts belonging to several prominent journalists covering the company’s owner, Elon Musk, have been abruptly suspended.

Reporters for the New York Times, CNN and the Washington Post are among those who found themselves locked out of their accounts on Thursday evening.

A Twitter spokeswoman told tech website The Verge that the ban was related to the live sharing of location data.

It comes after Mr Musk vowed to sue the owner of a profile that tracks his jet.

A spokesman for the New York Times called the suspensions "questionable and unfortunate" and CNN added it was “concerning but not surprising".
