“Amnesty” on Twitter – Elon Musk will ban everyone who did not break the law and did not engage in spam

The owner of Twitter Elon Musk has decided to offer a “general amnesty” to blocked accounts from next week – it will primarily affect “toxic” users banned for radical statements. Anyone who hasn’t broken the law on the social network and hasn’t sent spam will get a chance. This is the second major moderation decision he has made since taking over as CEO, following the return to the network of the 45th US President Donald Trump’s account. Both decisions were made after Musk conducted an informal poll on his personal account.

The decision to end years of Twitter moderation actually severely limits or nullifies Musk’s original promise: to create a diverse board to help make serious decisions about moderation. Musk has pushed back on the idea, accusing “groups of political and civic activists” of scuttling the alleged “deal,” a claim that no one but himself has confirmed.

During an informal poll, 72.4% of respondents voted for unblocking the banned. The voting pool exceeded 3 million votes. It should be noted that Musk has long tried to abandon the purchase of Twitter based on claims that the service was filled with bots and unreliable accounts. It is not known whether bots voted in the poll.

It is not yet clear which accounts will be banned. Elon Musk noted that users who “violated the law or engaged in blatant spam” will not receive “amnesty.” Musk has previously outlined some minimum standards beyond breaking the law. While he has spent a lot of time addressing the grievances of the right, he has expressed his disapproval of the idea of ​​allowing someone like Alex Jones (a well-known conspiracy theorist whose account was deactivated for inciting violence) to return to the social network.

Reactivating most suspended accounts can cause a lot of drama on Twitter. The social network will definitely not become more cozy for many, but, without a doubt, events will develop interestingly.
