Elon Musk holds Twitter poll for 'general amnesty' of suspended accounts
Days after reinstating former US President Donald Trump's account following a Twitter poll, Elon Musk held another poll to gauge public opinion on “general amnesty.”
The new Twitter owner held a poll asking users whether all suspended accounts that “have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam” should be restored.
Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?”the tech billionaire asked,with options to vote either yes or no.
The results of the poll survey, which has a 24 hours window, will be out on November 25, 2022, around 11:16 PM IST.
Earlier, Musk had run an online poll asking Twitter users whether Trump's account should be reinstated on the micro-blogging platform.
In the poll that received 15,085,458 votes, 51.8 per cent voted yes and 48.2 per cent were against it.
"The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,' Musk tweeted.
Trump's Twitter account appeared to be back as of Saturday evening and the last tweet was dated January 8, 2021, in which Trump said, "To all of those who have asked Inauguration on January 20th."
