Twitter now bans other social media site links

By

Twitter has announced a new policy that links to other social media sites are now banned, and accounts that try to direct Twitter users to other platforms will be suspended.

It's another day and another new policy under Elon Musk's Twitter with links to Facebook and Instagram now prohibited, as well as links to Twitter alternatives such as Post, Mastadon, and even Donald Trump's Truth Social.

The move allows for incoming links from other platforms but means Twitter users will not be easily directed out.

"Specifically, we will remove accounts created solely for the purpose of promoting other social platforms and content that contains links or usernames for the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr and Post," Twitter's support account tweeted.

The ban also covers using URL-shortening services, and prohibits posting encouragement to "follow me @username on Instagram" or "username @ mastodon.social" is restricted, Twitter said in a blog post.

However, Twitter says it will still "allow paid advertisement/promotion for any of the prohibited social media platforms."

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
