Editor Stephen Clark then shared that the official Twitter account was blocked for sharing rocket fire. When asked what exactly the snaps from other Twitter users were, Chris Bergin clarified that it was just a view of Falcon 9 Michael’s auto-tracking with his own camera.

SpaceX kicked off its year 2023 with the glorious launch of 114 small satellites, marking the first of 100 missions planned for this year. Naturally, Twitter users jumped at the opportunity to share photos of the historic event on their social networks. However, things didn’t go as planned for Spaceflight Now. His official Twitter account was blocked for sharing pictures of rockets. News portal editor Chris Bergin shared a snapshot of his blocked account for about 12 hours. Even editor Stephen Clark shared that the official Twitter account was blocked for sharing rocket fire. When asked what exactly the snaps from other Twitter users were, Chris Bergin clarified that it was just a view of Falcon 9 Michael’s auto-tracking with his own camera. Now, SpaceX and Twitter Elon Musk have shared their response to Bergin’s tweet. “Looks like our image recognition needs some work!” He wrote.

Several social media users have joined NSF’s editor in asking the CEO of Twitter to rectify this issue with the social media platform. Many said watching rocket snaps and clips was the highlight of their time on the social media platform. One Twitter user wrote: “Of all the things Elon should be able to do well, this has to be at the top of the list. It’s ridiculous.”

Another user shared his experience with his Twitter account being blocked after sharing a snapshot of the same SpaceX launch. They tweeted: “Happened to me too. A rocket photo I took in Cape Town earned me a 12-hour suspension from Twitter.

Meanwhile, some have called to give Musk and Twitter some time to adjust. This was bound to happen with all the big changes happening on the social media platform. “Give it time. The software behind Twitter gets major updates and changes. There will be glitches. This one is unfortunate of course, but I’m also sure it will get fixed,” the user wrote.

Elon Musk is no stranger to replying to people on Twitter. Though more often than not, his responses catch users off guard. One Twitter user outplayed Musk at his game. Satire website Babylon Bee shared a tweet that spoke about Bruce Wayne’s poll asking Arkham inmates if he should step down as Batman. It was reminiscent of Musk asking Twitter users if he should step down as CEO.

Still, all Musk could do was find some humor in the situation and respond with a smiley emoji.
