Kanye West is back on Twitter

Rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, returned to Twitter on Sunday, writing, “Testing if my Twitter is blocked.”Twitter confirmed it last month West was banned from the account “Because it violated Twitter’s policy”

Twitter didn’t reveal which policy West broke, but he posted “dead” on Oct. 9. [sic] con 3 “About Jews.” In a since-deleted tweet, West also said, “Funny, black people are actually Jewish too, so I can’t really be an anti-Semite.” I am writing.

West was also restricted on Instagram early this month, posted on right-leaning social network Parler, posting, “I got kicked off Instagram for 30 days.” He told Russell Simmons, co-founder of Def Jam Records and clothing line Fat Farm, about the restrictions due to comments he made about Jews. .

West’s return to Twitter comes less than 24 hours after the platform’s new owner, Elon Musk, said he had reinstated several other suspended accounts. Former President Donald TrumpMusk created a poll on Twitter asking users whether Trump should be reinstated, posting on Saturday night, “People have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.” . Trump’s Twitter page, which had not been seen since January 8, 2021, after the attack on the US Capitol two days ago, has been restored to the platform.

It’s unclear if Musk has anything to do with the lifting of restrictions on the rapper’s account.
