Elon Musk vows to reinstate suspended Twitter accounts after user poll


Elon Musk said Twitter Inc. will greatly expand the reset of banned users starting next week in a major change to the site’s content moderation policies.

In response to a poll conducted by Musk, some 72% of participants voted for a “general amnesty” for suspended Twitter accounts “as long as they haven’t broken the law or engaged in egregious spam.” Musk said Thursday that the amnesty will begin next week.

Since buying Twitter, the billionaire CEO has reinstated several accounts, including those of former President Donald Trump, Christian news satire site Babylon Bee and Canadian self-help author Jordan Peterson.

While Musk had previously said no reinstatements would take place before the formation of a content moderation council, he accused activist groups of breaking an agreement made on the council.
