Elon Musk threatens to transfer the NPR Twitter account. According to NPR Elon Musk indicated he would switch the network’s primary account, which goes by the name @NPR, to another business or individual, according to NPR.

Elon Musk, the founder of Twitter, has “threatened” to transfer National Public Radio’s Twitter account to a different business, the American broadcaster claimed on Tuesday.

NPR said that Musk said he would give another company or individual control of the network’s primary account, which goes by the handle @NPR.

In opposition to a Twitter categorization that suggested that the government was involved in its editorial material, NPR stopped publishing information to its 52 official Twitter streams last month.

According to the public broadcaster, Musk enquired about its relationship with Twitter in an email to an NPR reporter.

“So is National Public Radio going to start posting on Twitter again, or should we reassign @NPR to another company?” NPR quoted Musk as saying.

In another email, he stated, “Our policy is to recycle handles that are unquestionably dormant.” All accounts are subject to the same policy. There won’t be any favors for NPR.

A request for comment from Reuters was not immediately met by NPR or Twitter.

Twitter users are required to check into their accounts at least once every 30 days in order to prevent permanent deletion due to extended inactivity.

Following NPR’s example, PBS and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ceased posting on Twitter after receiving similar labeling.

Later, Twitter removed the labels, but as of Tuesday, their profiles indicated that the targeted outlets had not started up again.
