This comes after billionaire Elon Musk came under fire in December last year for suspending accounts of several journalists over a controversy over publishing public data about his plane. However, he later reinstated the accounts.

Earlier, Musk had said he would “introduce a council” that will take decisions on whether people who have been banned on the social media platform would be allowed back.

Meanwhile, recently, the Twitter CEO changed his name to “Mr. Tweet” - a nickname he chose after the lawyer representing investors who are suing Musk over Tesla’s share price accidentally referred to him as "Mr. Tweet" at the courtroom on Monday, according to a San Francisco-based tech journalist Patrick McGee. However, the name seems to stay as the microblogging site is not allowing Musk to revert to his real name.
