Twitter dropped its guardrails for propaganda from Russian, Chinese, and Iranian government accounts.

NPR reports that, per a former Twitter employee:

“What I understand to have happened is, at Elon Musk’s direction, Twitter’s Trust and Safety Team, or what’s left of it, took a chainsaw to the visibility filtering rules,” said one of the former employees, who was an executive at the company.

Twitter removed its “government-funded media” labels as well, so now it will be that much more difficult to know if stuff that feels like propaganda might be coming from a state-controlled accounts.
