Twitter account of Kanye West is unblocked by Elon Musk
Nearly three weeks after being locked due to antisemitic messages and comments, KanyeOmari West, better known as Kanye West or Ye, the well-known American singer and fashion designer, had his Twitter account reinstated.
The musician posted on his Twitter account on Sunday night to confirm the situation, writing, "Testing Testing, Seeing if my Twitter is unblocked."
Musk responded positively to this by writing, "Don't murder what ye detest, Save what ye love," in Ye's comment area.
This occurs just 24 hours after Elon Musk, the new CEO of Twitter, reinstated former US President Donald Trump. Trump had been suspended in January 2021, immediately following the Capitol riot, for violating the social media platform and for the potential to further encourage violence.
Days after Kanye's Instagram and Twitter accounts were briefly suspended due to a string of posts that were deemed to be anti-Semitic, the firm made the statement.
