Elon Musk, the proprietor of the X platform (formerly known as Twitter), has indicated his intention to eliminate the block function on the social media site.
Mr. Musk, in response to a user query on his platform, announced that the block feature would no longer be available except for direct messages.
The X user inquired about the utility of the block and mute functionalities, prompting Mr. Musk to address the matter in a tweet.
According to Mr. Musk’s tweet, “The block feature will be removed, except for DMs. It doesn’t make sense,” he explained.
Since assuming ownership of the platform, Mr. Musk has introduced significant modifications. He introduced a fee for X verification and rebranded the platform to X, along with changing its logo.
These platform adjustments have sparked user reactions, with some expressing disagreement with specific changes.
Mark Zuckerberg of Meta launched Threads, a text-based platform to attract dissatisfied X platform users.
Mr. Musk initiated the acquisition of the platform on April 14, 2022, and successfully concluded it on October 27, 2022.
After several months of negotiation, the billionaire entrepreneur acquired the social media company for $44 billion.
