Twitter grabs another popular username

After taking the username @X from its longtime user, Twitter has now removed @music, an account with 500,000 followers. After paying $44 billion for the social media site, Elon Musk seems intent on destroying any value, even if it’s just a group of people following an account to learn more about music to experience.


16 years ago, a Twitter user named Jeremy Vaught created the Twitter account @music and since then he has grown the account’s following to over 500,000 users. Last Thursday, without warning, X Corp confiscated the @music username from its owner, stating that the account “will be affiliated with X Corp.” For those who don’t know, Twitter was founded by Elon Musk into the company that now operates X/Twitter. Now Twitter’s @TwitterMusic account is @music.

Under Musk’s leadership, Twitter/X effectively stole the popular @music name from a longtime and active user. It’s likely that Twitter/X will do the same with other accounts if X wants certain other users to be managed with it. Another handle that Twitter has taken over is the @X handle, which the company confiscated when the company abandoned its original Twitter branding.
