Elon Musk has announced that there remains to be “no decision” on reinstating Donald Trump’s Twitter account however the billionaire says he has allowed Kathy Griffin and Jordan Peterson back on the platform.

The previous president has been banned from Twitter since his supporters launched a violent rebel on the US Capitol on January 6 202, and was forced to launch his own Truth Social website.

Before buying Twitter for $44bn last month, Mr Musk said that banning Mr Trump had been a mistake and that he desired to reinvigorate the platform as a spot at no cost speech.

“Latest Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach. Negative/hate tweets will probably be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter,” Mr Musk tweeted on Friday. “You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which isn’t any different from remainder of Web.

“Kathie Griffin, Jorden Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated. Trump decision has not yet been made.”

Mr Trump, who was historically impeached twice during his one term within the White House, announced earlier this week that he was running to be the Republican nominee for president for the third time in 2024.

Ms Griffin, a comedian, was suspended from Twitter earlier this month for impersonating Mr Musk’s account to focus on the failings in his $8 per 30 days verification system, which has now been paused.

Mr Musk mocked Ms Griffin, joking that “she was suspended for impersonating a comedian.”

Peterson was suspended from Twitter in June after a post about transgender actor Elliot Page broke the corporate’s rules “against hateful conduct.”

“Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician,” tweeted Peterson, an anti-trans Canadian clinical psychologist.

The move got here as Mr Musk was forced to temporarily close Twitter offices until Monday as tons of of employees resigned fairly than comply with his latest “extremely hardcore” work culture.

Following the 5pm ET deadline, tons of of Twitter employees reportedly signalled on the corporate’s Slack system that they were leaving, and Mr Musk’s response was reportedly to shut offices until 21 November.

Mr Musk took to Twitter and joked on the seemingly difficult position he now found himself in.

“How do you make a small fortune in social media? Start out with a big one,” he tweeted on Thursday evening.
