Elon Musk’s X to Strip Headlines from Shared News Articles in Bold Move

The social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is planning a significant change in how news articles are displayed. Instead of showing headlines and text, tweets with article links will now only display the lead image. Users, including publishers, will need to add their own text with the links for context. This change is intended to reduce the height of tweets on the timeline, increase the number of visible posts, and address clickbait issues. The move is reportedly driven by X owner Elon Musk, despite concerns from advertisers. This change could impact publishers and advertisers who rely on social media for website traffic.
