In the latest drama for the tech giant, Washington Post reports Twitter has suspended a dozen journalists from CNN, NYT, The Washington Post, and other outlets.

Twitter suspended the accounts of more than half a dozen journalists from CNN, the New York Times, The Washington Post and other outlets Thursday evening, as company owner Elon Musk accused the reporters of posting "basically assassination coordinates" for him and his family.

The Post has seen no evidence that any of the reporters did so.
