Elon Musk Plans To Reinstate All Banned Twitter Accounts: Reports

San Fransisco: Elon Musk has started restoring Twitter accounts that had previously been permanently banned, fulfilling his vow to ease up on content moderation. However, if reports are to be believed, the Twitter chief in a recent meeting with the management board has proposed to reinstate all the accounts that were banned from the platform.

However, it’s uncertain if any other reinstatements are on the horizon, especially for the still-suspended account of former US president Donald Trump, who recently announced his bid for reelection. A decision about Trump’s reinstatement, according to Musk, “has not yet been made.”

Until they put up a content moderation council with ” widely diverse viewpoints,” Musk asserted that no significant moderation decisions, including reinstatements, would be made.

Whereas the platform saw hundreds of workers leave after Musk gave an ultimatum earlier this week, the reinstatements come at a crunch time for the platform. The platform’s overall staff has decreased from 7,500 before the Musk takeover to less than 3,000 as of Thursday’s deadline as a result of layoffs and continuous attrition.

Significant chaos has resulted from the departures within the organization. “Anyone who actually writes software, please report to the 10th floor at 2 PM today,” Musk wrote in an email to the company’s software engineers after closing the offices on Thursday.
