Elon Musk Will Offer Amnesty To Suspended Twitter Accounts… While He Gives New Details About Twitter Blue

In a move that is sure to spark new alarm bells about Twitter becoming the platform of the far right, Elon Musk via yet another Twitter poll is going to restore suspended Twitter accounts.

By running these polls, he’s creating a situation where he’s creating cover for himself when, key word WHEN things go off the rails when it comes to these suspended accounts. After all, many of these accounts are anti-vaxxers, Neo-nazis, white supremacists, anti-LGBTQ activists, anti-Muslim bigots among other low life scumbags of the universe who don’t deserve a platform. So I can see that this will create a situation where the holders of these accounts make news for all the wrong reasons, and Twitter will get blamed for giving them a voice. Musk therefore will just use the excuse that “the people have spoken” when confronted with that. This despite the fact that this was likely his plan all along.

Another thing is, despite the fact that he makes moves that are this stupid, he still doesn’t get why advertisers are running in the other direction from Twitter. The answer is pretty simple, they don’t want to be associated with a platform that allows hate speech, which is something that has increased since Musk took over. But he’s too stupid to see that quite clearly.

Finally, this move is guaranteed to have the EU knocking on his door demanding answers. And if Musk doesn’t play ball with them, that will end badly for Musk.

The other thing that Musk did overnight is put out this Tweet:

The way I read this Tweet, he has no choice. He clearly wanted Twitter Blue to be a quick revenue generating method by giving it to anyone with few controls. But when that went off the rails and sent corporations to the exits, it backed him into a corner where he now has no choice but to introduce some form of verification process. And I sense he’s clearly not happy about this. It’s not clear how this will work from the Tweet. But it will be interesting to see what happens next Friday when it launches. It does open up an interesting question, if you have a checkmark and you don’t pay for Twitter Blue, what happens to you? I guess we will find that out next Friday as well.
