Elon Musk says Twitter will grant amnesty to banned accounts next week

Elon Musk says Twitter will issue a general amnesty for suspended accounts next week.

The billionaire continued his ad hoc policy-making strategy through a Twitter survey, asking users on Wednesday: “Should Twitter offer a blanket amnesty to suspended accounts, provided they have not broken the law or engaged in gross misconduct? spam?” He did not specify which laws.

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

“The people have spoken,” Musk tweeted after the poll ended. “Amnesty starts next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” he tweeted, using the Latin phrase meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

Musk has previously used a poll to decide the fate of Donald Trump’s suspension from Twitter. More than 15 million votes were cast, with 51.8 percent for reinstating Trump’s account, though the former president has yet to tweet. In addition to Trump, a number of other banned accounts have been reinstated, including Jordan Peterson and internet personality Andrew Tate.
