Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz is suspended from Twitter, and she claims that Elon Musk, the social media platform's new owner, removed her after she asked him to comment for a story.
Lorenz said Saturday that when she was removed, she had three live posts on her account, two of which were promoting her other social media profiles, and one of which was asking Musk to comment on a story.
In a brief substack post, Lorenz said she and her colleague Drew Harwell, who was also suspended by Twitter earlier that week, were "working on a story involving Musk and were hoping to get [a] comment from him."
Lorenz, who has been accused of doxing conservative Chaya Raichik and falsely accusing entrepreneur Marc Andreessen of using "the r-slur," said Twitter did not inform her why she was suspended.
"Musk's arbitrary suspensions of journalists who report on him should worry anyone who values journalism and free expression," Lorenz said after the suspension.
Musk suspended several journalists last week that he said were sharing details about his location, but he reinstated most accounts on Saturday.
