Journalists are suspended by Twitter after tweeting about Elon Musk's jet.

Twitter has banned the accounts of several high-profile journalists, including Ryan Mac from The New York Times, Donie O'Sullivan from CNN, Drew Harwell from The Washington Post, Micha Lee from The Intercept, Matt Binder and Aaron Rupar from Mashable.

It is not yet known why these suspensions have been implemented. The affected reporters generally cover technology-related topics and seem to have recently published articles on Elon Musk.

Kate Conger of The New York Times has suggested that the suspensions of these journalist accounts may be connected to the @ElonJet incident, in which an account that shared information about the takeoff and landing of Elon Musk's private jet was suspended, along with its creator.

The social networking platform Mastodon also recently had its account suspended after tweeting a link to the ElonJet account on its platform. On Wednesday, Twitter updated its policy on private information and media to prohibit the sharing of someone's live physical location, as well as links to sites that provide this type of information.

Twitter has not yet commented on the suspensions.
