Twitter boss Elon Musk launched a new poll on Wednesday about recovering suspended Twitter accounts after his latest poll led to the reinstatement of former US President Donald Trump’s account.
“Should Twitter offer a full amnesty to banned accounts as long as they don’t break the law and send outrageous spam? Yes/No,” he asked. Two hours later, more than a million accounts have already spoken out, mostly in favor of yes.
Elon Musk believes that content moderation is too restrictive and undermines freedom of expression, and for him, Twitter is the “digital public platform” necessary for democracy in the world.
The new owner and CEO of Twitter has already rehabilitated on Saturday the account of former US President Donald Trump, blocked in the social network after the storming of Capitol Hill in Washington in January 2021.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” he tweeted after 15 million accounts responded to his poll on the return of the Republican multi-billionaire, including 51.8% in favor of “yes.”
