Twitter has been engulfed in controversy since Elon Musk assumed ownership of the social media platform on October 27.

First, an email-based layoff of half the employees was conducted.

Then, an ill-advised new version of its verification mechanism known as "blue check" was introduced.

Now, Twitter has suspended a number of well-known journalists who cover Elon Musk.

Twitter users who are concerned about company changes are exploring for alternative social media platforms.
