Elon Musk's Plan to Bring Back Banned Twitter Users Will Take "A Few More Weeks"

The billionaire states that Twitter requires “a clear process.”

Elon Musk announced that he was buying Twitter for $44 billion USD back in April this year. Since then, the billionaire has unleashed a number of ideas about how he plans to change the platform, including charging users $20 USD for verification.

Now, Musk has confirmed his plans to help banned users restore their accounts, those of which include the likes of Donald Trump, Katie Hopkins and most likely — Kanye West. The owner shared an update on his endeavour, announcing that the plan is still in progress and was likely to take a couple more weeks.

“Twitter will not allow anyone who was de-platformed violating Twitter rules back on platform until we have a clear process for doing so, which will take at least a few more weeks,” writes Musk on Twitter.

Upon purchasing the platform, Musk shared a statement about the importance of free speech, likely to be what’s informing his most recent decision. “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk shared in a statement on Twitter. “Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

In other news, some fans have started a GoFundMe in order to restore Ye’s billionaire status.
