Elon Musk said Thursday that Twitter will grant amnesty for suspended accounts beginning next week after holding a vote.
In a poll shared on Wednesday, Musk asked users whether Twitter should offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, "provided they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam."
An overwhelming 72.4% of Twitter users voted in the affirmative with more than 3 million respondents.
"The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week," Musk tweeted, adding: "Vox Populi, Vox Dei," a Latin phrase meaning the "voice of the people is the voice of God."
The new Twitter boss polled users last Friday asking his supporters if former President Donald Trump should be allowed back on Twitter after he was banned in the aftermath of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Trump has said he won't return to Twitter but has not deleted his account.
On Oct. 28, the day after he took control, Musk tweeted that no suspended accounts would be reinstated until Twitter formed a "content moderation council" with diverse viewpoints that would consider the cases.
