Elon Musk proposes amnesty to banned accounts on Twittertext_fields
San Francisco: Twitter CEO Elon Musk has kicked off a poll to find out his follower's take on reinstating all the previously banned users back on the micro-blogging platform who have not violated any law.
"Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?" he asked in a tweet.
Among his 118 billion followers, "yes" is so far in the lead.
Several users expressed their thoughts on Musk's post.
While one user commented, "let the people speak", another said "YES. No more politically motivated bans!"
Based also on a poll, Twitter CEO Elon Musk on November 20 had announced that former US President Donald Trump was allowed to re-join the micro-blogging platform.
Musk tweeted: "The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated."
He kicked off the poll on November 19 to find out how many of his over 117 million followers support or reject the move to reinstate Trump on the platform.
The new Twitter CEO said that the poll was getting a massive 1 million votes per hour.
Meanwhile, polls on Twitter are often criticised by experts as unscientific and potentially targeted by fake accounts and bots.
