There is an online check or monitoring which has witnessed a rise of racism, anti-Semitism, and criticism on Twitter
Musk, who broke the tide by fighting about Twitter being a free speech platform, purchased the platform. Hs acquired Twitter for $44 billion last month. He declared that the news of suspended accounts coming live on Twitter had a revolving response from the Activists.

Some activists strongly opposed Musk's decision. Some said people like former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke come back on Twitter the rant of hate speech won't stop.

Although Elon tweeted the decision after 72.4% of over 3.1 million voters supported the amnesty in an online poll. Many activists and AP note it as an unscientific method.
The Tweet comes after Elon strongly suggested the accounts of former President Trump be restored. He was banned in 2021 for the Capital riot of the U.S. Even. Kanye West's account was restricted due to antisemitic tweets.

Superspreaders of hate, abuse, and harassment will be the only people to benefit from this latest decision by Twitter," said Imran Ahmed, the CEO of Countering Digital Hate.

He further added, The choice for advertisers has never been starker: stick around and back Elon Musk, or protect their brands and ensure their marketing dollars aren't used to spread hate, abuse, and disinformation."

The larger plot

Some groups like the Center for Countering Digital Hate have witnessed the rise of racism on Twitter. Now that Musk owns the platform, research indicates it failed to act on "99% of racist abuse. It failed to act on soccer players in the lead groups.

Most of the advertisers have left the group or purchased altogether. At the same time, Musk blamed it on Twitter's massive drop in revenue. He blamed it on the activists for stopping and pressuring the advertisers.

Now a report was published by European Union. It stated that Twitter removed 45.4% of hate speech tweets from March to May.

In between

It all happened before Musk took over Twitter. His new policy wasn't going with the norms of the EU policy. It includes laws of the Digital Service Act, which abide by the responsibility of such platforms to monitor and eradicate illegal content.

Not a useful platform

Musk addressed the advertisers after he took over the platform. It will be a free-for-all hellscape platform. He even declared that the platform's hate speech had decreased considerably.

The Interest

Musk still had to address which banned accounts will be affected by the amnesty. Elon immediately ruled out reinstating the banned accounts for conspiracy theories stated by Alex Jones.
