The Griftopia author followed up his first tweet reading, “Series: THE TWITTER FILES”, “What you’re about to read is the first installment in the series, based on thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter.”
He added, “The Twitter Files” tells an incredible story from one of the largest and most influential social networks in the world. It’s a Frankenstein tale of a human construct that has grown outside the control of its designer.”
Twitter’s new admin is also working on a “massive cleanup” of spam/scam accounts.
On Thursday, Musk took to his Twitter account and shared an update on the word limit with everyone. He tweeted, “Twitter is cleaning up a lot of spam/scam accounts right now, so you may see a drop in your follower count.”

Musk also plans to increase Twitter’s character limit from 280 to 1000.
A few days ago, a social media user tagged Musk and wrote on Twitter, “The idea to increase the character limit to 1000.”
In response, Musk wrote, “On the todo list.”
The character limit has been one of the main differences between Twitter and other social media services. Musk has expressed interest in the idea of expanding the character limit several times since he took the stage, according to a report by Mashable. . On November 27, a Twitter user suggested that Musk increase the word limit of the platform from 280 to 420.
“Great idea,” Musk wrote back. Before that, another user had suggested to “remove character limits.”
“Absolutely”, replied the billionaire.
Now it remains to be seen when Musk finally makes changes regarding the grain limit.
