Elon Musk, Twitter Inc.’s new boss and Tesla CEO, revealed on Friday that people whose accounts were suspended for “minor and dubious reasons” will be reinstated.
“Anyone suspended for minor and dubious reasons will be freed from Twitter jail,” Musk posted Friday evening. He did not disclose when suspended accounts might be reinstated.
The billionaire’s message came as a response to Mikhaila Peterson, a Canadian-born podcaster who hosts experts on her show, “The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast,” to discuss a variety of topics that are often shied away from.
“[Elon Musk,] can you bring my dad [Jordan Peterson] back on here but also somehow make sure he doesn’t spend all his time on Twitter?” Peterson asked Musk on the social media platform.
