Elon Musk says blacklisted Twitter users won’t return for weeks after election

Following Elon Musk’s recent announcement that Twitter would unban a number of blacklisted users, he has since stated that they will not be allowed back on the platform until ” at least a few more weeks,” or in other words, until after the midterm elections are over.

NBC News reports that Elon Musk recently suggested that people who have been blacklisted from Twitter would not be allowed back on the platform for several weeks, which would prevent political figures like former President Donald Trump from returning to Twitter before the midterm elections.

Musk tweeted about the situation in response to Yoel Roth, Twitter’s Radical Left Safety and Integrity Manager, regarding attempts to “manipulate” conversations around the 2022 midterm elections which will take place on next week.

“Twitter will not allow anyone who has been removed from the platform for violating Twitter rules until we have a clear process to do so, which will take at least a few more weeks,” Musk said. .

Breitbart News recently reported that Musk is backing Yoel Roth as Twitter’s “chief security and integrity officer.” Attention was drawn to Roth after Musk tweeted leaked screenshots of a conversation Roth was involved in which Musk claims to prove that the company’s lawyers and board misled him in error on the measurements of the platform.

Conservative podcaster Liz Wheeler commented that Roth should have been the first person Musk fired, but Musk was quick to defend Roth, saying, “We all tweeted dodgy, me more than most, but I want to be clear that I support Yoel. My feeling is that he has great integrity and that we are all entitled to our political convictions.

Many others, including author and podcast host Catturd, were quick to point out that Roth has been accused of being extremely biased against conservative users and has called members of the Trump administration “true Nazis.” “.
