Elon Musk, 51, the CEO of Tesla Motors and the new owner of Twitter, has suggested that people who are banned from the social media platform, Twitter, would not be allowed to use Twitter for weeks.
Nbc news stated that Musk’s decision not to get de-platformed users back on Twitter before specific processes highlight the return of Ex-President Donald Trump on Twitter is almost impossible.
This decision, suggested by the Twitter owner, can hugely affect Trump before the midterm elections.
Musk also voiced that the people banned from Twitter will not be able to use Twitter until and unless a proper investigation is led by the team about the reason for the ban, which can take weeks.
Musk also introduced the idea of forming a team to moderate the content on Twitter, including people from the civil rights community. The decision to form a team with people of different views can help to select what content should be banned from Twitter and what not to.
Donald Trump is banned from Twitter from 2021 after a mob lynching was led by his supporters in the U.S. Capitol.
There was no chance of Trump returning to the social media platform until Elon Musk purchased the company.
Elon’s statement earlier in May suggested that he called out the permanent ban of Trump’s account on Twitter as a bad mistake and that he would like to retrieve the former president’s account.
But Trump had already interviewed himself on a news channel saying that he will never return to Twitter even if Musk buys the social media platform.
Elon Musk also said that he does not support or glorify the idea of hate, bullying, and harassment of any kind so if content with any of the above is found on the accounts of Twitter users, then that person shall be banned from Twitter for weeks until his team finds the person guilty of no charge.
Musk also cleared the people’s doubts regarding Trump’s return on Twitter. He stated that if he could charge money for every question asked to him about the Ex-President, then Twitter would have earned a lot of money by now.
The new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, has also faced a lot of criticism from the civil rights community group for advocating retrieving accounts of permanently banned users who used to spread daily hatred on the platform.
Though Musk has some beneficial ideas for diminishing the hate-spreading culture on Twitter, he received a lot of backlash for having the idea of only a temporary ban and no permanent ban.
Elon Musk was already in talks with the former CEO of Twitter to buy the platform in April, but soon he reached the idea of not buying it. Finally, in October, he agreed to buy Twitter and became the owner of Twitter only last week.
