The current owner of TwitterElon Musk, affirmed, through his account on the social network, that he will remove the suspension from all users who were canceled on the platform, except those who have engaged in spam, are considered robots or have broken the law in some way or another. way.
All this arose shortly after the South African reactivated the account of Twitter of former US President Donald Trump, who, despite the fact that he can communicate again through this social network, decided to stay on Truth, the conservative platform that his company created shortly after the suspension came out after the attacks on the capitol.
It all came up on November 23, when Musk conducted a poll, in his Twitter personal, where he asked his followers if the platform should “offer an amnesty to suspended accounts as long as they have not broken the law or spammed.” 72.4% of the more than 3 million votes said yes, which made the businessman affirm that, during the next week, millions of accounts will be reopened because “people had spoken”, noting in Latin that “The voice of the people is the voice of God.”
During the past week, several important figures had recovered the possibility of making publications on the social network, such as Kanye Westwho was suspended indefinitely at the time for anti-Semitic comments, kickboxer Andrew Tate, who was sidelined for his misogynistic comments in 2017, and far-right Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson.
This measure, however, sets off alarm bells within the company because they point out that there is most likely a wave of misinformation and hate on the platform, which could accelerate the decision of several companies to stop advertising their products for Twitter. This could further complicate a very delicate situation.
Why Trump Isn’t Going Back On Twitter
The platform was one of the first choices of the American politician during his presidency to share his ideas, until, after his followers invaded the US Capitol and he refused to condemn the action, he was suspended. That’s why he created Truth Social, an application very similar to Twitter.
However, after being able to return to the network where he achieved so much power and reach for several years, seems uninterested in being part of Musk’s experiment.
The company that founded this platform, Trump Media & Technology Group, is about to go public, which would make him the majority owner of a company valued at several billion dollars, making it his most successful company in history. To return to Twitter could put all of that at risk.
