Elon Musk completed the acquisition of Twitter, formed in 2006 with headquarters in San Francisco, California, for USD 44 billion in late October. The world’s richest man made changes to the company's daily operations, which included firing two-thirds of Twitter's workforce in addition to executives who were in charge of the platform's censorship, privacy, and cybersecurity.
On December 9, the company began working on a software update, according to Musk, that will inform users whether they have been "shadow banned" and why.
"Twitter is working on a software update that will show your true account status, so you know clearly if you've been shadowbanned, the reason why and how to appeal," he tweeted.
