Musk asks, “Should Twitter offer general amnesty to suspended accounts?”

After reinstating Donald Trump on Twitter, Elon Musk calls for ‘General amnesty’ for other suspended accounts.

In order to reinstate Trump, earlier, Elon Musk put up a poll asking users of Twitter to vote on whether to reinstate the account of former US President Donald Trump, who was earlier subjected to a lifetime ban over incitement of violence.  As per the survey, slightly over 15 million Twitter users voted in the poll with 51.8 percent in his favor, so he reinstated his account.

Once again, Twitter CEO, Elon Musk on Wednesday asked its users whether the site should offer a general amnesty to other suspended accounts. Taking to Twitter, Musk wrote, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”

The polls survey will be out on November 25, 2022, around 11:30 PM IST.

In fact, last Friday, Musk began reinstating accounts that were previously subject to indefinite bans for breaking the platform`s rules.

Author Jordan Peterson and comedian Kathy Griffin were among the first people whose accounts were reinstated. “New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach. Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted and demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won`t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from the rest of the Internet,” Musk said in an earlier tweet.

On Tuesday, Musk also poked at the people who predicted the doom of Twitter, soon after his takeover, and tweeted, “Wasn`t Twitter supposed to die by now…?

He said, “Twitter added 1.6M daily active users this past week, another all-time high”

He also shared “Hate speech impressions down by 1/3 from pre-spike levels. Congrats to Twitter team!”  It is evident that more stringent actions are taken against hate speech and accounts engaged in abuse and degradation are being taken down.  Is Twitter a safer zone now?
