Elon Musk claims that starting next week, Twitter would grant ‘amnesty’ to certain terminated accounts
Elon Musk says Twitter will offer an “amnesty” to some suspended accounts starting next week.
Elon Musk said Thursday that Twitter will offer a “general amnesty” to suspended accounts starting next week after surveying whether it would do so for users who didn’t break the law or engage in egregious spam.
In a poll Musk posted on Twitter on Wednesday, 72.4% of the more than 3.16 million users who participated voted to reinstate those who have been suspended by the social media platform.
“People have spoken,” Musk, who took over Twitter last month, wrote on Twitter Thursday. The amnesty will begin next week.”
Last week, Musk, the world’s richest person, reinstated some previously suspended accounts, including those of former US President Donald Trump, the satirical website Babylon Bee, and comedian Kathy Griffin.
He tweeted in October that Twitter would form a content board with “very diverse perspectives”. He said no major content decisions or accounts will be reinstated before the board meeting.
Change and chaos in the first weeks of the billionaire’s life as the owner of Twitter. It has sacked top managers, including former CEO Parag Agarwal, and announced the resignation of senior officials responsible for security and privacy.
The resignations drew scrutiny from the US Federal Trade Commission, whose mandate includes consumer protection and which said it was watching Twitter with “deep concern”.
Earlier Thursday, Musk tweeted that Twitter users may notice small, sometimes significant improvements in the platform’s speed, which will be significant in countries far from the United States.
