Musk commented on reports of the removal of one of Twitter’s features.

Elon Musk, an American entrepreneur and owner of the social network Twitter, denied reports that he allegedly ordered the removal of a feature from the social network that promoted suicide prevention hotlines.

On Saturday, Reuters reported, citing sources, that Musk had ordered the removal of a feature from Twitter that promotes suicide prevention hotlines.

As noted, the #ThereIsHelp feature showed at the top of specific searches in many countries contacts of support organizations related to mental health, HIV, vaccines, sexual exploitation of children, COVID-19, gender-based violence, natural disasters, and freedom of expression.

“This is fake news,” Musk tweeted.


At the end of October, Musk finally closed the $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter. He promised to liberalize the editorial policy of the social network, which was widely criticized for severe censorship, and create a content moderation council, but until the council works, do not make global decisions about editorial policy and the restoration of blocked accounts. Musk also warned that the social network “is going to do a lot of stupid things” in the near future. The company intends to “keep what works and change what doesn’t work.”
