San Francisco, CA - Twitter has announced that it will be suspending all accounts that do not follow Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk. According to a statement from the company, "We have determined that following Elon Musk is the key to a successful and fulfilling social media experience. Therefore, any account that does not follow Mr. Musk will be suspended."
The move has sparked outrage among Twitter users, many of whom have accused the company of pandering to Musk's massive ego. "This is outrageous," said one user. "I shouldn't have to follow someone just because Twitter says so."
Others have pointed out the absurdity of the situation, with one user tweeting, "So now we're all supposed to bow down to Elon Musk and his cult of personality? This is a joke, right? Is this free speech?"
Despite the backlash, Twitter has shown no signs of reversing its decision. In fact, the company has reportedly hired a vast team of robots to enforce the new rule, which will scan the platform for accounts that do not follow Musk and suspend them automatically.
The move has also sparked speculation about the end of the Twitter platform via a chain reaction. Consider: since Musk cannot follow himself, he would need an exemption from the ban or cause the removal of every user on the platform once he himself was removed.
Only time will tell how this situation will play out, but for now, it looks like Twitter users will have to choose between their freedom and their love for Elon Musk.
