From now on Twitter is forbidden to publish links to a number of competing social networks.
Elon Musk's Twitter policy reforms are proceeding rapidly, and yesterday the social network's leadership announced that it was no longer allowed to post links to Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post on its pages. It is forbidden even to mention in text form accounts in these social networks and promote them in the form of screenshots. In the future, relevant actions will be available for a fee.
Official Twitter support statements emphasize that cross-posting of content with the listed social platforms is allowed, and resources not listed are not subject to any restrictions. Elon Musk clarified that he does not mind periodically exchanging links, but is opposed to the active promotion of competing platforms on a free basis. Violators of this policy will be blocked on Twitter. Users will be prohibited from mentioning their accounts on other social networks that fall under the restrictions.
Of course, Twitter accounts created solely for the promotion of other social platforms will be blocked. It will not be possible to publish links to third-party link aggregators. When the paid publication of links to the listed resources becomes available, it is not specified. The restrictions did not affect Telegram, TikTok, YouTube, Weibo and OnlyFans. Attempts to publish a link to a "forbidden" platform will be automatically blocked by the system.
Former Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey expressed his dismay at the new rules for posting links, apparently frustrated by Nostr's recent $245,000 block. Musk later apologized for the sudden change in Twitter policy and promised to continue to hold profile polls on the pages of the social network before changing anything.
