Twitter will grant “amnesty” to banned accounts next week, says Musk – The Hollywood Reporter

Elon Musk said Twitter will issue a general amnesty to suspended accounts next week.

The billionaire continued his distinctive policy-making strategy with a Twitter poll, asking users on Wednesday, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts?” only, provided they don’t break the law or engage in serious spam?” He did not specify which law.

A majority (72 percent) of the 3.1 million users voted in favor of an amnesty for blocked accounts, a group that includes former Ku Klux Klan wizard David Duke, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and Roger Stone, right-wing writer Milo Yiannopoulos, singer Azealia Banks, pharmaceutical magnate Martin Shkreli and neo-Nazi group Proud Boys.

“Everyone has spoken,” Musk tweeted as the poll ended. “The amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” he tweeted, using a Latin phrase meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

Musk previously used a poll to decide the fate of Donald Trump’s Twitter suspension. More than 15 million votes were cast, with 51.8% in favor of restoring Trump’s account, although the former president has yet to tweet. In addition to Trump, several other banned accounts were reinstated, including Jordan Peterson and internet personality Andrew Tate.
