The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.
The move follows an online poll that asked Twitter users, "Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?"

With the purchase of Twitter, Musk reportedly aims to restore free speech on the platform. The site's previous management had been widely been criticized for silencing speech they disagreed with or took offence to. Musk will purportedly allow any speech that doesn't break the law.

Roth also revealed that Apple and Google wield enormous influence over Twitter and will likely shape the decisions the company makes.
