‘Opening the gates of hell’: Musk says he will revive banned accounts

Washington Post [title should be “reopening the gates of hell” – “Elon Musk plans to reinstate nearly all previously banned Twitter accounts — to the alarm of activists and online trust and safety experts. After posting a Twitter poll asking, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?” in which 72.4 percent of the respondents voted yes, Musk declared, “Amnesty begins next week….” [I never saw a poll and have been on Twitter since 2008 – the poll was just like so much that is going on since the Musk purchase of Twitter – horse hockey.” [Many long term Twitter users, famous and not in any way – but diligent about posting (me) have lost many of their followers. This has nothing to do with the banishment of bots.]
