‘The People Have Spoken’: Elon Musk Backtracks Big Time, Brings Back Journalists and Pundits He Just Suspended

Published on

Musk is undoing a slew of Twitter punishments.

Friday night, the Twitter owner and multibillionaire ordered the restoration of nine accounts that had been suspended earlier in the week.

Thursday, Musk issued a Twitter poll asking public feedback on overturning the suspensions.

Musk said that the survey was the reason for restoring the temporary account suspensions, with 58.7 percent of respondents urging for the rapid reinstatement of the accounts.

“The people have spoken,” he tweeted. “Accounts who doxxed my location will have their suspension lifted now.”

Musk never stated that the suspended accounts will be banned permanently from Twitter.

Journalists from the Washington Post and the New York Times had their accounts blocked and reactivated, according to the Daily Mail.

CNN released a statement in which it threatened to reduce its usage of Twitter in response to the suspensions, which angered the mainstream media.

Musk previously stated that the banned accounts broke Twitter’s terms of service by posting information that “doxed” or disclosed his real-time physical location.

The individuals appear to have shared content released by @ElonJet, a suspended Twitter account that provides real-time trip details for Musk’s private plane, on other platforms.

In a Thursday Twitter Spaces chat, the megabillionaire clarified that journalists would be held to the same standard of conduct as other users under his administration after the suspensions, citing Twitter’s rules against doxing.

At least one account that had been banned this week remains suspended — that of progressive extremist Keith Olbermann. CONTINUE READING…
