Musk calls on X users to report "unfair treatment

Elon Musk said Saturday that his company, "X", will pay for the legal services used by users who have problems with their employers because of their posts on the platform.

Users, including many celebrities and people well known in the public arena, have run into trouble with employers over controversial posts they posted, liked or retweeted on the platform that was formerly Twitter.

"If your employer treats you unfairly for posting something on this platform, we will pay your legal bill," he wrote on the site.

Musk did not give details of how the users got the money.

Since his acquisition of the platform for $44 billion at the end of October, its advertising revenue has fallen by about half due to his more flexible approach to preventing hate speech and reinstating previously banned extremist accounts.

Musk has spoken repeatedly about his desire for freedom of expression driving the changes he's made.

In December, Musk restarted former President Donald Trump's Twitter account, but the latter has not yet returned to the platform.

The former president was banned from Twitter at the beginning of 2021 for his role in the January 6 attack on the Capitol building, which was carried out by a group of his supporters seeking to annul the results of the 2020 elections.

Likewise, the “X” network restarted the account of American rapper and designer Kanye West, about eight months after it suspended him, according to the “Wall Street Journal”.
Last fall, Kanye West published a picture of a swastika intertwined with the Star of David on his account, so Elon Musk only suspended the singer's account.
