Brazilian Supreme Court justice opens inquiry into Elon Musk for obstruction of justice and incitement to crime, moves to remove X from telecom network | 11 April 2024 | It appears Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes has taken the first steps toward shutting down the X social media platform across the country and has begun an inquiry into X and its owner Elon Musk for "obstruction of Justice" and "incitement to crime." This comes after a conflict between de Moraes and X owner Elon Musk. X has also been prohibited from reactivating accounts that had been suspended and ordering a fine of $20,000 per profile if X does not submit to their order. Andreza Matais, writing for Noticias UOL, said that representatives of de Moraes's office reached out to the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) to find out how to go about removing X from Brazil.
