Elon Musk may be ready to restore a number of previously suspended Twitter accounts.
“Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to banned accounts provided they haven’t broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?” he asked in a Twitter poll.
A majority of votes so far have been in favor of the business tycoon’s mass accounts amnesty proposal.
Since acquiring the social media company, Musk has already recovered a number of accounts.
He reinstated former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account after conducting a poll that found a majority of votes in favor of reinstatement. “The people have spoken. Trump is reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk tweeted, using that in Latin means “The voice of the people (is) the voice of God.”
Earlier this year, Musk said he would reinstate Trump if he owned Twitter — Musk described the move to kick Trump off the platform as “morally wrong and downright stupid.” Trump was booted off the platform towards the end of his tenure in the White House last year.
Musk has also previously restored Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account, which was permanently suspended in January.
In October Musk tweeted, “Twitter will form a content moderation council with very different viewpoints. No major content decisions or account restorations will be made prior to the convening of this council.” But on Tuesday, he wrote that “a grand coalition of political/social activist groups have agreed not to try to kill Twitter by starving us of ad revenue if I agree to this condition. They broke the deal.”
Musk has agreed with conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza that Twitter censorship targets conservatives, but not leftists.
“We don’t hear much about Democrats and leftists being left behind on Twitter. Why? Because they were never kicked out in the first place. Their lies and misinformation simply escaped scrutiny. Censorship was used as a unilateral operation against them “Conservatives”, D’Souza tweeted on Monday, Mark Musk.
“Right,” Musk answered on Tuesday.
