X, previously known as Twitter (led by Elon Musk), made a public announcement regarding its actions during the Israel-Hamas conflict. The social media platform disclosed that it had removed newly created accounts affiliated with Hamas and had purged tens of thousands of posts for sharing graphic content, violent speech, and promoting hateful conduct. It also confirmed that CEO Linda Yaccarino had cancelled her appearance at an upcoming tech conference, citing the need for her and her team to focus on platform safety amidst the ongoing global crisis.

X stated that it was actively monitoring for antisemitic speech and had taken steps to remove several hundred accounts attempting to manipulate trending topics. To enhance transparency and communication among its community, the platform introduced Community Notes on posts, allowing users to propose and rate notes in real time.
