She also did not mention how the number compared to an average month.

This comes as Musk faced criticism last month after endorsing a post accusing Jewish people of pushing hatred against whites and supporting immigration.

The tweet read: “Jewish communities have been pushing the exact kind of dialectical hatred against whites that they claim to want people to stop using against them.”

In response, Musk said: “You have said the actual truth.”

As a result of the backlash, major brands including Apple and Disney left the social media platform following claims X and owner Musk have encouraged anti-Semitism.
