There was a recent Twitter hack that impacted a variety of well known figures like Elon Musk and Bill Gates and in the midst of that attack on the platform, many people suddenly lost their ability to post at all on the social media website.
Things should be back to normal now, however and most people should be able to post like they normally would.
It wasn't everyone who had been blocked from tweeting, and it isn't sure how they put the change in place, but the block allegedly only impacted verified accounts on Twitter.
Opting to create an online presence in an alternative media space, perhaps many of them, gives those individuals who had their voices silenced, a chance to post something if it might be important or they simply just want to.
It was a tough day for the folks working at Twitter as a result of the hack. It highlighted a vulnerability of the platform and several accounts have been compromised.
Shares in Twitter took a noticeable dip in response to the event.
