Musk reinstates Twitter accounts of suspended tech reporters

The Twitter accounts of several tech reporters were reinstated after company owner Elon Musk asked people on the social media site to vote whether they should be allowed back, reports, reports Juliana Kim of NPR.

Kim reports, “The accounts that went dark included Donie O’Sullivan of CNN; Ryan Mac of The New York Times; Drew Harwell of The Washington Post; Micah Lee of The Intercept; and journalist Aaron Rupar.

“On Friday evening, Musk put the decision of whether to reinstate suspended accounts up for a public vote. He tweeted an informal poll which asked Twitter users to choose when to “unsuspend accounts who doxxed my exact location in real-time.”

“According to the poll, 58.7% of voters favored lifting the suspensions immediately over 41.3% of respondents who said Musk should wait seven more days.

“Rupar, whose account was reinstated on Friday, said the suspensions signaled Twitter’s instability.”
