In today's edition of What's Happening at Twitter, Deadline reports that all email inquiries from the media sent to the social network's official press email are receiving an automated reply that includes simply ... a poop emoji. CEO Elon Musk has long had an adversarial relationship with the media, and he announced Sunday: "press@twitter.com now auto responds with [poop emoji]."

(The poop emoji is not a new addition to Musk's Twitter arsenal.)
