X accounts farming engagement risk suspension, Elon Musk warns

The Chief Executive Officer of X, formerly Twitter, Elon Musk, has warned that any account involved in engagement farming on the social media platform will face suspension.

Engagement farming refers to practices done in order to get more interaction metrics on social media without adding any specific value.

Musk who made this announcement in a tweet on his X handle on Friday, wrote: “Any accounts doing engagement farming will be suspended and traced to source.”

It was reported that in March Musk said he may remove visible engagement metrics such as likes and reposts from posts on the X platform.

In July 2023, he also set temporary limits on the social media platform to address extreme levels of data scraping and system manipulation.
