It seems Elon is looking to pivot away from the ADL and into largely accepting free speech within legal limits, which is all that we ask for.
Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?

People were very mad that Elon Musk gave a hard “no” in response to calls to reinstate Alex Jones, and he appears to now be walking it back.
People are calling this “The Joneslash.”
This is more or less exactly what we asked for from the beginning (as long as there are hard and fast rules). If he wants to ban slurs or whatever, that doesn’t really matter – however, I think there needs to be a literal list of slurs you’re not allowed to say.
As long as he doesn’t then ban for “off platform activity,” we can all definitely follow the rules.
