Musk announces reactivation of suspended Twitter account



Twitter owner Elon Musk announced Thursday that the suspended account will be reopened next week after a majority of voters voted in favor of the move in a poll on the social network.

“People have spoken. Amnesty starts next week,” Musk tweeted, opening a question on the issue among Twitter users on Wednesday.

Of the approximately 3.16 million people who voted, 72.4% said yes to Musk’s question, saying, “Unless you’re breaking the law or sending outrageous spam, we’ll take action against your suspended account.” Should we give a general pardon?”

Musk, who bought the social network for $44 billion at the end of October, had already consulted with users to determine whether Donald Trump could return to the platform.

The former US president was banned from social networks after his supporters attacked the Washington Capitol in January 2021.

Trump’s account was revived after a small majority (51.8%) of 15 million voters in a Twitter poll voted in favor of returning to the network of Republican billionaires on Saturday.

Using this consultative mechanism to define guidelines for social networks is imminent with the establishment of “a (content) moderation council with very diverse perspectives,” which Musk announced shortly after the company’s acquisition. This is inconsistent with the stated commitment. .

“No major decisions regarding content or account recovery will be made until this council meets,” he tweeted.

However, the richest man on the planet said that “activists” and “politicians” are trying to kill Twitter by “depleting (its) advertising revenue,” which represents 90% of the company’s sales. After denouncing it, I broke this promise.

Several major brands, including Volkswagen, General Motors and General Mills, have announced that they are suspending their advertising spend on Twitter since being acquired by Musk.
