Washington Post tech journalist Taylor Lorenz’s Twitter account was suspended On Saturday, after the reporter reached out to Twitter CEO Elon Musk for comment on a story she was working on.

“Tonight Elon Musk suspended my Twitter account,” she wrote on her substack late Saturday. “I have received no communication from the company as to why I was suspended or what terms I violated.”

Lorenz said she and her colleague Drew Harwell emailed Musk several times about their story. When he didn’t respond, Lorenz said they sent the following tweet tagging Musk:

Lorenz did not reveal what the story was about. But her tweet seemed to be in there Response to a complaint from Musk that he was “doxxed” via a flight tracking site – his location was revealed.

Lorenz called Musk’s action “super crazy” in a video she shared on TikTok on Saturday.

“Elon seems to ban anyone who disagrees with him,” Lorenz continued.

In response to a tweet about Lorenz’s suspension, Musk claimed without evidence that she engaged in “past doxxing” but that the suspension is temporary and will be “lifted shortly.”

Temporary suspension due to previous doxxing of this account. Will be lifted shortly.

The suspension of Lorenz’s account follows massive controversy after Musk suddenly suspended several prominent tech journalists from major media outlets including CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post on Thursday.

Musk claimed he was doped when some of the journalists posted links to a website that tracks his flights. He left several of the journalists on Twitter on Friday.

Following those suspensions, a United Nations spokesman said Friday the organization was “very concerned” by Musk’s “arbitrary” silence from journalists, which he says sets a “dangerous precedent” for freedom of expression. European leaders have warned that Musk’s actions violate the European Union’s protections for freedom of expression.

Musk had until recently insisted he was a “free speech absolutist.”

Journalists and others were outraged by Musk’s actions against Lorenz and apparently chastised her for asking the billionaire for comment.

Taylor Lorenz’s account was suspended after he tweeted @elonmusk please comment. Here’s what she has to say: “The abandonment culture has gone too far. I think the way Musk arbitrarily bans anyone he personally dislikes has dangerous implications for free speech.
