Twitter Says It Will Reinstate Suspended Accounts as Advertisers Have Withdrawn en Masse

HeadlineNov 28, 2022

Twitter is expected to reinstate most suspended accounts this week after new owner Elon Musk announced Thursday a “general amnesty” for previously banned users. Imran Ahmed, from the group Center for Countering Digital Hate, said, “Superspreaders of hate, abuse and harassment will be the only people to benefit from this latest decision by Twitter.” This comes as a new report found half of Twitter’s top 100 advertisers have left the platform since Musk’s takeover.
