Elon Musk, the head of X (formerly known as Twitter) has challenged Brazil's court order for blocking certain popular X accounts. The tech billionaire said that he will be lifting all the restrictions even if they will have to close their office in the respected country.

What is the reason for such a move?

The decision was taken after X Corp was forced by the court’s decisions to block certain popular accounts from Brazil.

In an official post, X wrote, "We do not know the reasons these blocking orders have been issued. We do not know which posts are alleged to violate the law," X wrote in a post.

He further added, "We are prohibited from saying which court or judge issued the order, or on what grounds. We are prohibited from saying which accounts are impacted.”

In response to such restrictions which have been put on by the Brazilian court, Elon Musk stated, "Why are you doing this @alexandre (Alexandre de Moraes, Justice of Brazil's Federal Supreme Court)?

Later, in another post, the X head said, "We are lifting all restrictions. This judge has applied massive fines, threatened to arrest our employees and cut off access to X in Brazil".

He further added, "As a result, we will probably lose all revenue in Brazil and have to shut down our office there. But principles matter more than profit.”

On Community Notes feature

Meanwhile, X has activated the Community Notes feature which is a user-based fact-checking programme for India, as the country prepares for general elections.

Musk-owned micros blogging social media platform further also welcomed new contributors in India for its community notes feature.
