Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, spoke out on the micro-blogging platform on Wednesday to discuss whether the service should grant other suspended accounts an universal amnesty.

Taking to Twitter, Musk wrote, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”

He created a pol for this and around 11:30 PM IST on November 25, 2022, the polls survey will be released.

 

Earlier, Musk posted a poll on the micro-blogging platform asking users to vote on whether to allow former US President Donald Trump to reactivate his account after being banned for life for inciting violence.

“Reinstate former President Trump,” the billionaire Twitter owner posted, with a chance to vote either yes or no. “Trump poll getting ~1M votes/hour,” he said in a subsequent tweet.

As per the survey, slightly over 15 million Twitter users voted in the poll with 51.8 per cent voting in favour of reinstatement.

“I don’t see any reason for it,” the former president said via video when asked whether he planned to return to Twitter by a panel at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting.

Trump’s account was suspended in 2020,  following the US Presidental elections, which resulted in legal troubles for the former US President.
