Kanye West Is Back on Twitter
Although Kanye West has remained relatively quiet on the social media front, his Twitter account was reinstated by Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, now known as X. The social media baron suspended Ye’s account for eight months. According to UK’s Daily Mail, Kanye’s account was up and running on Saturday (July 29).
According to the social-sharing platform, Kanye will not be allowed to make money from his account on the newly-rebranded X. Additionally, advertisements will not be displayed next to his posts. However, he does possess the gold check, which is typically reserved for business accounts.
Why Was Kanye Kicked Off Twitter?
Kanye West was suspended from Twitter in December of 2022 after a post on his account appeared to show a swastika inside a Star of David. Earlier that day, he had made anti-Semitic remarks and praised Hitler during a bizzarre interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Elon Musk stated that the post went against the platform’s policy on inciting violence.
Initially, Kanye was locked out of his Twitter account for posting an anti-Semitic tweet on their platform, which violated their policies. He posted the hateful tweet a day after he slammed Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg for purportedly kicking him off Instagram. Currently, Ye’s Instagram account is not active.
