“Kathie Griffin, [Jordan] Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated. Trump decision has not yet been made,” he then added in the thread.
New Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.Negative/hate tweets will be max deboosted & demonetized, so no ads or other revenue to Twitter. You won’t find the tweet unless you specifically seek it out, which is no different from rest of Internet. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 18, 2022
“Will my personal/campaign account be re-instated?” Greene (from her Congressional account) then tweeted in response.

Greene was reinstated on Monday, just after Trump who was also allowed back on the platform on Saturday, The Hill reported. Greene announced the comeback of her personal account in a tweet, encouraging the followers of her Congressional account to “Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)” “I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’ My account is back,” Greene tweeted on Monday afternoon.

Some on Twitter were excited to see Greene’s personal account back. “BREAKING: MTG’s campaign account @mtgreenee is BACK!” tweeted Greg Price from X Strategies, a conservative consultant group.

Greene’s reinstated, personal account now has over 531 thousand followers. These changes come in the midst of what many are saying is an overhaul of Twitter under Musk. Not only are formerly suspended accounts being reactivated, but hundreds of Twitter employees have also been laid off, while more resigned as a result of Musk’s “ultimatum” that he issued last week, The Verge reported. [firefly_poll] After initially laying off about half of Twitter’s employees after his takeover, Musk also asked employees to either leave or commit to doing harder work that meant “long hours and high intensity,” according to The Verge. Many workers resigned after that. Meanwhile, Bloomberg also reported on Monday that Musk had begun to fire more employees in the platform’s sales department starting on Sunday night.
