Twitter will start granting “universal amnesty” to suspended accounts starting next week, Elon Musk revealed on Thursday. The site should reinstate affected accounts, the CEO had earlier asked in a vote.
Just one week prior to the statement, Musk lifted former President Donald Trump’s suspension from the platform as a result of a related survey. Trump has said he does not expect to return to the platform despite being banned after the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Musk’s user survey contained a caution that users who had been suspended might re-register “so long as they haven’t broken the law or engaged in egregious spam.” 3.2 million people responded to the poll, and 72.4% of them supported amnesty.
