Elon Musk removes headlines from news shared on X

The owner of X (formerly Twitter), Elon Musk, has said news shared by media platforms will no longer show headlines as he wants to keep users on the platform.

Musk, who has consistently attacked the “legacy media” and touts X as a better source of news than the media, wants users to spend more time on the platform through policy.

Already, X has started cutting headlines from link cards on the iOS app and on the web. This means that readers will see just an image with the domain name of the link on the bottom left, which is easy to miss.
