Even if you don’t want to see Elon Musk’s often inane and provocative tweets, simply blocking him doesn’t seem to work. The richest man on the planet, in the midst of all his business, such as firing half of Twitter’s employees and inventing new ways to monetize the social network, has found time to unblock himself from thousands of casual users of the service.

Over the past few days, people have begun to notice that Musk is reappearing in their feeds, although his account was previously blocked by them. When blocked again, some users noticed that Musk’s account was unblocked again in just a few hours. It is hoped that the eccentric billionaire, who already has 115 million followers on Twitter, will not force all users of the social network to subscribe to him.
This is not the only controversial act of Musk over the past few days. Yesterday, he began blocking accounts that tried to troll and parody his personality. According to Elon’s new rules, now any parody account must clearly indicate this in the name displayed on its page, but the problem is that so far Twitter does not allow changing such names. At least for verified accounts.
This step led to a new portion of criticism of Elon Musk, who constantly notes that he is for full freedom of speech. To these accusations, the billionaire replied that “My commitment to free speech extends even to not banning the account following my plane, even though that is a direct personal safety risk.” But who knows if this will not change tomorrow, given Musk’s complete power over Twitter.
