Elon Musk says Twitter blocked him after Bitcoin tweet
Elon Musk says Twitter briefly blocked him because the tech firm suspected his account had been hacked.
The Tesla chief indicated the safety precaution was prompted by a tweet he had sent asking: "Wanna buy some Bitcoin?" Several fake accounts have previously used images of Mr Musk and variations of his name to promote cryptocurrency scams, sometimes within replies to his posts.
Twitter declined to comment. "For privacy and security reasons, we don't comment on individual accounts," explained a spokeswoman. However, the BBC understands that the account was locked down rather than "blocked". Mr Musk's suspect tweet had featured an anime drawing of a girl wearing Bitcoin-themed clothing.
