Elon Musk’s X Rolls Out New Feature to Crack Down on Anonymous Trolls



San Francisco: Elon Musk, the CEO of X (formerly Twitter), unveiled a new feature allowing users to restrict replies exclusively to verified accounts. This move is aimed at combating spam, troll and bot activities on the platform. The introduction of limited replies follows X’s recent crackdown on spam, which resulted in some users losing followers. Musk’s announcement comes as part of the platform’s ongoing efforts to improve user experience and address spam-related issues.

While Musk praised the new tool, not all users embraced the idea of limiting replies to verified users, citing the desire to interact with non-verified friends. X has faced challenges with troll and bot accounts, prompting significant actions to maintain content quality and user engagement.

In addition to limited replies, X is also making changes to its block feature to align with Musk’s stance on absolute freedom of speech. The platform is taking steps to address bot operations and maintain content quality while supporting freedom of expression.
