Elon Musk has been making frequent changes to the micro-blogging site since becoming the new owner of Twitter. In this episode, on Thursday, he announced a 'general apology' for suspended accounts on Twitter. Elon Musk said he will start a 'general amnesty' for other suspended accounts after former US President Donald Trump's Twitter handle was restored. Musk wrote on Twitter, "The public has spoken. Apology begins next week. Vox populi, vox dei." Vox populi, vox dei is a Latin phrase meaning "the voice of the people, the voice of God."
72.4 percent of people voted in favor
Earlier on Wednesday, Musk asked in a tweet whether the micro-blogging site should offer a 'general amnesty' to other suspended accounts. Musk wrote on Twitter, "Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided they haven't broken the law or engaged in serious spam?" According to the results of the survey, more than 3 million people voted for the poll. Of this, a majority of 72.4 percent voted in favor of the pardon, while 27.6 percent disagreed.
Earlier, Musk had conducted a poll for the users of the micro-blogging site to restore the account of former US President Donald Trump. More than 15 million people took part in this poll, in which 51.8 percent agreed with Trump's return to Twitter and 48.2 percent disagreed.
The account started appearing immediately after Musk's announcement
Shortly after Elon Musk's announcement, Twitter lifted the ban on Donald Trump's account. Donald Trump's account was restored after about 22 months. Musk had tweeted after the poll, the public has spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Earlier, at the annual leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, he was asked by a panel if he planned to return to Twitter. Former President Trump said through the video that I do not see any reason for this.
Trump's account was suspended due to inflammatory tweet
Donald Trump's Twitter account was blocked due to inflammatory tweet. In fact, after the 2020 presidential elections in the US, Joe Biden was elected to the presidency. After this, on January 6, supporters of Donald Trump in Capitol Hill created a ruckus outside and inside the White House. In view of this violent demonstration of the crowd, Twitter first suspended Trump's account for 12 hours and later completely.
However, this new policy of Twitter comes as no surprise as the world's richest man has taken many decisions like this one, including buying Twitter. Last Friday, Musk began restoring accounts that were previously subject to an indefinite ban for breaking the platform's rules. Writer Jordan Peterson and comedian Kathy Griffin were among the first to have their accounts restored. Elon Musk took a dig at the trollers
