Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently suspended a handful of mainstream media journalists. Most of them, if not all, have been reinstated. Musk claimed they helped amplify information that could lead to dangerous people knowing where members of Musk’s family including himself were located in real time.
We are not lawyers however, simply reporting on the latest status of this ongoing drama. Financial guru David Sacks tweeted:
“Real-time doxxing is illegal in California under Penal Code 653.2. It is not constitutionally protected speech.”
“The journalists were aware of the violent stalker and yet still doxxed the real-time location of my family. Turns out that’s a criminal offense …”
It’s unclear if any of the journalists or jet tracker are under penalty of this law. However, Musk wants to make it clear that in his view and that of the law, this is not safe behavior, won’t be allowed and doesn’t make him a hypocrite.
This is a developing situation and could updated as things unfold.
