UPDATE: Elon Musk has responded via Twitter, and has said. the whole thing is a mistake.
This was a mistake by many people at Twitter. It is definitely allowed.
Whether or not you agree with using someone’s preferred pronouns, not doing so is at most rude and certainly breaks no laws.
I should note that I do personally use someone’s preferred pronouns, just as I…

That is good to hear. What that means for the event tonight, how the mistake happened, who was responsible for it happening, and what Elon is going to do about it is still unclear.
Original story below.
This is a breaking story and as of right now it is only The Daily Wire's side of things. So let's unpack what we have. Apparently, Twitter was supposed to have a special airing of the Matt Walsh documentary "What Is A Woman" today for the movie's one-year anniversary. I *think* was part of DW moving all their shows to Twitter, a platform DW CEO Jeremy Boreing once called the "largest free speech platform on the internet."
Sounds like Jeremy has changed his mind.
Twitter canceled a deal with @realdailywire to premiere What is a Woman? for free on the platform because of two instances of “misgendering.”
I’m not kidding.
Here's what happened:?1/16

Boreing went on to say: “After reviewing the film, though, Twitter let us know that not only could we no longer purchase the package they offered, they would no longer provide us any support and would actually limit the reach of the film and label it as ‘hateful conduct’ because of ‘misgendering.’”
He was told the movie would be throttled as part of Twitter's "speech not reach" policy.
Matt Walsh has also responded.
Read this thread. We are streaming “What Is A Woman” free for all on Twitter tonight. Despite signing an agreement with us, Twitter now says they will label the film hate speech and suppress it. This is a gross betrayal of the free speech promises they have made to their users. https://t.co/KTn3CjRFSS

Elon Musk has yet to respond and I hope he does because this is confusing. Elon is believed to have bought Twitter BECAUSE the platform censored The Babylon Bee over misgendering a Biden Adminstration official. But also, two months ago Elon has this to say about parents and doctors who sex change their kids.
Any parent or doctor who sterilizes a child before they are a consenting adult should go to prison for life

Would Elon Musk be censored on Twitter? And does this have to do with new Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino? This is the same woman who pushed for ADVERTISERS to have more of a say in content moderation on Twitter.
We'll see how Elon responds.
Looks like RUMBLE is the real largest platform in the world for free speech.
