Twitter has been in turmoil in recent months since Elon Musk took office, and now the Kinks are starting to feel the effects. Apparently, the platform has issued a warning to the band’s tweets, so Dave Davies has directly asked his Musk to stop it.
After sharing one of the Kinks’ 60th anniversary TikTok videos in a tweet (see below), Davis wrote below, “This tweet has been flagged because it may contain sensitive content. I noticed that there was a notification saying You have the option to dispute the warning. It’s unclear if Davies appealed, but he called Musk about the situation.
“Dear Elon Musk, please stop warning all of ‘The Kinks’ on Twitter. We’re just trying to promote The Kinks’ music,” the rocker wrote. It’s a brand name.Since 1963, we’ve been called The Kinks.”
According to a fan who responded to Davis, Twitter said it had removed the warning because of the appeal, but added that the individual was still able to see it at the time.
“No way. The word robot should be banned. We live our lives in robots. At least I’m a kink and not a fucking robot,” Davis replied.
At this point, the warning no longer appears in the tweet, but it was still a rather humorous situation.
Since Musk took office in the fall, several musicians have actually deactivated their Twitter accounts, or simply stopped using the platform.Elton John and Trent Reznor are among the rockers who left the app. but countless other people have complained about the app.
