Rumours emerged this week that L'Oréal had reportedly suspended its advertising spending on Twitter, following Elon Musk's US$44bn takeover of the social media platform.
This was according to two sources close to L'Oréal who knew about the alleged decision.
The beauty giant has vehemently denied the claim, however, the Financial Times
reported that it “did not make any decision to suspend advertising spending on Twitter”.
