(Reuters) – Twitter owner Elon Musk said on Thursday that he wants advertisers who are increasingly worried about Twitter’s policies to seek the truth and clean up fake accounts. He explained his thoughts again and called for reassurance. In this regard, he also argued that it would be more important to raise the price of flat rate paid services and provide a “verification badge” that shows the account is valid.
“If an account is engaging in fraudulent activity, we will suspend it,” Musk said, adding that he plans to make Twitter an interesting and fun place to tell the truth.
However, there is confusion over Mr Musk’s control of Twitter. On the 9th, he revealed that he had “rescinded” the “official label” he had just introduced to some verified accounts.
Meanwhile, major Twitter advertisers such as General Motors Co. and General Mills Inc. are withdrawing their ads due to concerns that Mr Musk will loosen his scrutiny of content. Civil society groups are also pressuring advertisers to stop running ads after Mr Musk laid off about half his workforce.
