Musk floats ‘general amnesty’ for suspended Twitter accounts

Quick Summary

A blanket decision on suspended accounts could potentially alarm government authorities that are keeping a close look at Musk's handling of hateful speech.

The move comes as Musk has faced pushback against his criteria for content moderation being subject to his personal whim, with reinstatements granted for certain accounts and not others.

Twitter owner Elon Musk on Wednesday polled users on whether the site should offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, using the same method he used to handle the case of former U.S.President Donald Trump.
