The new owner of Twitter, the billionaire businessman Elon Musksaid this Thursday that will apply an “amnesty” to suspended accounts next week, unless they broke the law or engaged in “outrageous spam.”

Musk thus reacted to the eminently favorable responses (more than 72%) in a survey he raised yesterday in his own account, and to which some 3 million users have responded: “The people have spoken. The amnesty begins next week. Vox populi, vox dei”.

Billionaire Elon Musk.

A few days ago, the founder of Tesla already held another online referendum, with five times more participation and a very close result, which led him to restore the account of former President Donald Trump, who was suspended indefinitely by Twitter after linking his comments to the assault on the Capitol.

The businessman has shown his rejection of the permanent vetoes on the social network and has recently returned the accounts of other controversial figures, such as the far-right congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, banned for months for publishing falsehoods about covid-19.

In early November, Musk said Twitter “won’t allow” anyone who’s been removed from the social network for violating its rules to return to the platform until the company has a clear process.

The magnate, who bought the network for 44,000 million dollars, also said in a series of tweets that “Twitter’s content moderation council will integrate representatives with widely divergent points of view, which will undoubtedly include the civil rights community and groups that combat hate-fuelled violence.
