It’s a whole new era on Twitter, thanks to Elon Musk.
On Friday, Twitter restored dozens of accounts which were banned in recent years in a sign of how different things have become on the site under the leadership of Elon Musk.
This is not entirely unexpected. Musk promised to do this a few weeks ago.
CNN reported on November 25th:
Elon Musk says he will begin restoring previously banned Twitter accounts next week
Elon Musk said Thursday that he will begin restoring most previously banned accounts on Twitter starting next week, in his most wide-reaching move yet to undo the social media platform’s policy of permanently suspending users who repeatedly violated its rules.
“The people have spoken,” Musk tweeted on Thursday. “Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”
The announcement comes after Musk on Wednesday polled his followers about whether to offer “general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam.”
The poll, which closed around 12:45 pm ET on Thursday, finished with 72.4% voting in favor of the proposition and 27.6% voting against. The poll garnered more than 3 million votes on Twitter.
Musk was good to his word. Here are some of the accounts that were just reactivated.

Alot happened while in Twitter exile. Most important was the US Senate Panel on Dec 7, 2022, where experts testified on the flawed design of LNP-mRNA, injuries, disabilities, and death. Here was the punchline. Send this to mandaters! @SenRonJohnson https://t.co/JFPawqIS5x

Well folks, it looks like I'm back. I want to apologize for the misinformation. For too long, I was underestimating the magnitude of injury from the COVID gene juice. I won't make that mistake again. Thank you @elonmusk for free speech, the right to dissent, and reasoned logic.

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Steve Kirsch.
I'm back. But because I was permanently banned twice, I never got my original followers back (they only restored my followers I accumulated between the two bans). Please follow, like, and retweet so we can help get the truth out! Thank you Elon! pic.twitter.com/kv5BmVTJat

Guess who’s back on Twitter!
Comment below if I used to follow you so I can follow you back on here, it only showed 33 followers as of this morning instead of the 200k+ there was for whatever reason. pic.twitter.com/9WRvvUDBqG
