Elon Musk: Twitter will not reinstate banned users without ‘clear process’

Elon Musk tweeted in the early hours of Wednesday to provide additional clarification over the potential return of Twitter’s most well-known banned user, former U.S. President Donald Trump. Banned accounts won’t be permitted to return until the social media platform has “a clear process for doing so,” he said.

Musk said that developing such a process would require at least a few more weeks. The revised timeline suggests that Trump won’t be back in time for the Nov. 8 midterm elections.

Twitter will establish a content moderation council made up of members with “widely divergent views,” Musk added reiterated in a follow-up tweet on Wednesday.

According to Robinson, the billionaire said during the discussion that he would want the civil society organizations to join the council but noted that the negotiations were still in the early stages.

“Actions will speak louder than words,” he said. “The issues that were addressed in this meeting were just the tip of the iceberg.”
