Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Thanksgiving Day announced that a general amnesty for suspended Twitter users who haven’t “broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” will begin “next week.”
Musk posted a poll on Wednesday asking, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”
With over 3 million votes, 72.4% of users said “Yes” versus just 27.6% who said “No.”
“The people have spoken,” Musk announced after the poll closed. “Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

Musk said on Tuesday that his plan to have a “content moderation council with widely diverse viewpoints” was crafted because “a large coalition of political/social activist groups” (see: the Anti-Defamation League and their cronies) “agreed not to try to kill Twitter by starving us of advertising revenue if I agreed to this condition” but “they broke the deal” by immediately organizing an advertiser boycott against him.
