Elon Musk has said Twitter will grant a “general amnesty” to suspended accounts starting next week, after conducting a poll on whether to do so for users who have not broken the law or engaged in gross spam.
In a poll Musk posted on Twitter on Wednesday, 72.4 percent of the more than 3.16 million users who participated voted to bring back those who had been suspended by the social media platform.
“The people have spoken,” said Musk, who took over Twitter last month. tweeted Thursday. “Amnesty starts next week.”
Last week, Musk, the richest person in the world, restored some previously suspended accounts, including those of former US President Donald Trump, satirical website Babylon Bee and comedian Kathy Griffin.
He tweeted in October that Twitter would form a content moderation board “with widely differing views.” Musk said no major content decisions or account recovery would take place before the council meets.
Change and chaos marked the billionaire’s first few weeks as owner of Twitter. He has fired top executives including former Chief Executive Parag Agrawal while it was announced that senior officials responsible for security and privacy have stepped down.
Those resignations came under scrutiny from the US Federal Trade Commission, whose mandate also includes consumer protection, which said it was watching Twitter with “deep concern”.
Earlier on Thursday, Musk tweeted that users might notice “small, sometimes large, improvements in Twitter speed” that would be “particularly significant in countries far away” from the US.
