Musk tweeted that the accounts of comedian Kathy Griffin, psychologist Jordan Peterson and conservative parody site Babylon Bee “have been restored“, but what “No decision has yet been made on Trump.”
Trump was expelled from the platform shortly after the assault by his supporters on the Capitol, on January 6, 2021, with a view to preventing the electoral certification of his Democratic rival Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 elections.
Musk’s announcement came moments before US Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of an independent prosecutor to lead criminal investigations into Trump, three days after the former president announced a new run for the White House. by 2024.
Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson was suspended from Twitter in June, before Musk’s acquisition of the social network, following a post about transgender actor Elliot Page violating the site’s rules on hateful conduct.
Peterson had often made comments against transgender rights and was asked by Twitter to remove the post about Page.
“Twitter’s new policy is freedom of expression”, Musk tweeted on Friday, but “negative/hateful” messages will be “maximally demonetized” so there will be “no publicity or other profit for Twitter.”
“You won’t find that tweet unless you specifically search for it, which is no different than the rest of the internet,” added.
