Elon Musk to abused Twitter users: your tormentors are coming back
2022-11-25 05:16

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has decided to allow suspended accounts back onto the micro-blogging service.

Musk used the same process for this decision as he did when restoring access to a Florida Man who once held high elected office in the US - an utterly unscientific and easy to manipulate poll of Twitter users.

The phrase Musk uses at the end of the tweet above - "Vox Populi, Vox Dei" - translates from Latin as "Voice of the people, voice of God".

Operators of suspended accounts have therefore usually already been disciplined but continued to abuse other Twitter members.

They return to a Twitter with a greatly diminished staff to respond to any further claims of abuse, and a CEO who has demonstrated indifference to their potential suffering.

Twitter has billions of dollars of debt to service, but runs at a loss.
