Twitter Now X Restores Kanye West’s Banned Account

Rapper/Record Producer Kanye West’s account has been put back on Twitter after an almost eight-month prohibition over awful tweets.

The G.O.O.D. Music Record label boss was reprimanded for violating the platform’s rules prohibiting incitement to violence.

He has not published anything new since returning to the social media App, which owner Elon Musk has changed name to X.

Ye’s account now shows his last post on 1 December 2022, a day before it was suspended.

Musk uttered at the time that the ‘Jesus Walks’ rapper had “violated our rule against incitement to violence”, and that the account would be brought to a standstill.

It arrived after the Grammy-award-winning record producer posted a series of offensive tweets – one of which appeared to display a symbol combining a swastika and the Star of David.

The moratorium ensued from a similar ban two months earlier when Kanye was initially locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts after publishing anti-Semitic messages in October. Both social media outlets removed his posts.

Recall in the same month, Sports apparel brand colossus Adidas cut ties with the one-time billionaire, declaring it did “not tolerate anti-Semitism and any other sort of hate speech”.

Mr West also known as Ye was also suspended from Instagram for 24 hours in March last year after using a racial affront about comedian Trevor Noah.

Neither X nor its billionaire owner Mr Musk has remarked publicly on Ye’s account reinstatement on Saturday.

Musk put back one-time US President Donald Trump’s account last November after conducting a poll with 51.8% voting in favour of the reinstatement.

Meanwhile, Trump has expressed disinterest in returning to the social media platform.
