Twitter CEO Elon Musk is making headlines again.

This time for plans to reinstate banned Twitter accounts. According to Business Insider, Twitter employees call the plans “the Big Bang.”.

Recently, Musk tweeted a poll asking Twitter users if former President Donald Trump’s account should be restored. After results showed most respondents did, Musk restored the account.

Last Wednesday, Musk questioned, “Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?” Over 3 million people voted, with the majority saying the accounts should be reinstated.

In response, Musk tweeted, “The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

Some employees were not pleased, noting the great effort it is to restore accounts with significant followings. They fear greater instability at Twitter, especially since this comes on the heels of ¾ of their workforce being cut. The employees were also miffed that they learned of Musk’s plans from his tweets rather than internal communications.

According to Platformer, tens of thousands of banned accounts are being restored. Suspended accounts already restored, in addition to Trump’s, are psychologist Jordan Peterson, controversial Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, and influencer Andrew Tate.

Since Musk’s Twitter takeover, hate speech impressions are lower, with “the same list of terms” put into place before he took over. Still, some celebrities have quit the platform, while many advertisers have pulled or diminished their advertising. Musk does not seem concerned.

According to the Daily Wire, Musk says recent statistics show metrics that exceed previous records. Two hundred fifty million monetizable daily active users are on Twitter, with “user active minutes per day” reaching eight billion. He shared investor slides showing new users reaching two million daily.

What’s next for Twitter? How about Twitter 2.0? Musk has hinted that enhanced video content, encrypted direct messaging, long-form tweets, and entertaining advertisements are coming in the future. Maybe those advertisers that left should reassess their decisions. Looks like Musk is just getting started to make Twitter better than ever.
