The suspension of Taylor Lorenz, who reports on technology issues for The Washington Post, took place Saturday.
The suspension of Lorenz follows the brief suspension of several journalists from The Washington Post, The New York Times and other outlets who were banned for a week, but then allowed back on Twitter after Musk conducted a poll in which the overwhelming majority wanted the journalists back on Twitter.
On her SubStack account, Lorenz blamed Musk and linked it to an unspecified article she was writing about him.
