According to Elon Musk, the X social media platform will cover the legal fees and file a lawsuit on behalf of those who have suffered unfair treatment at the hands of employers as a result of something they posted or liked on the website formerly known as Twitter.
Musk wrote on X late on Saturday, “If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill,” adding that there will be no caps on funding the bills.
Musk later responded to a post about how the fear of legal action is the only thing that will change behavior in the U.S. quickly. “And we won’t just sue, it will be extremely loud and we will go after the boards of directors of the companies too,” he added.
Musk announced that the number of monthly X users had reached a “new high” late last month and provided a graph displaying the most recent figure of over 540 million.
The numbers were released while the business underwent organizational changes and sought to increase declining advertising revenue.
It was also the most recent in a string of remarks from X executives asserting robust usage after Meta Platforms on July 5 announced a rival platform called Threads.
After 17 years with a recognizable blue bird design that came to represent the dissemination of ideas globally, Elon Musk relaunched Twitter as X and presented a new logo in July, signaling a focus on developing a “everything app.”
Musk had earlier in July claimed that the platform’s negative cash flow was due to a nearly 50% decline in advertising revenue as well as a high debt load. In June, an increase in advertising revenue was anticipated, but it never happened.
