West tweeted a Nazi swastika and Star of David earlier today. Soon later, he announced on Truth Social that his Twitter was locked. Musk later explained that he “did his best” to get West to respect Twitter guidelines, but the rapper still posted violent content, resulting in a ban.

Musk tweeted “FAFO” to end the saga.

West has broken Twitter rules before. His account was suspended in October for antisemitic posts. He still hasn’t learned.

Last night, West appeared on Alex Jones’s Infowars and praised Hitler. House Judiciary Republicans deleted their tweet from October 6 that said “Kanye. Elon. Trump”

Parler later claimed Ye wouldn’t buy the company.

Parlement Technologies and Ye have decided to end the sale of Parler, according to a statement. Ye bought the social network for an undisclosed amount in October.

Twitter wrote a blog indicating it’s devoted to constructive dialogue under “Twitter 2.0” and hasn’t modified its policies. The business has modified procedures for account verification and a waiting period for new Twitter Blue accounts. Musk also granted a “wide amnesty” to previously suspended accounts.

In October, Twitter’s new owner pledged a “content moderation council” with “different opinions” No news there. Musk has talked about becoming a “free-speech absolutist” and making Twitter a “public town square,” yet he’s only mentioned suspending violent accounts.
