Kanye West, also known as Ye, has had his Twitter account restored after an eight-month suspension. The X social media platform, which now owns Twitter, reinstated Ye’s account after ensuring he would not use the platform to share antisemitic or other harmful language. Ye’s account had been suspended for violating Twitter’s rules against incitement to violence.
After Ye went on a string of antisemitic rants in interviews and on social media, he lost his partnership with Adidas and Gap for Yeezy products. His Twitter account was first suspended in October 2022, reinstated in October 2022, and then suspended again in December 2022 after one of his posts appeared to show a swastika symbol inside a Star of David.
Ye won’t be eligible to monetize his account on X, and advertisements won’t appear next to his posts, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing the social media platform.
The losses have cost Ye billions, he says, but he’s unfazed. In an Instagram post Thursday, he said, “I lost 2 billion dollars in one day and I’m still alive.”— Entertainment Insider (@EntInsider) October 28, 2022

Reinstatement by X Social Media Platform
X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, reinstated Ye’s account after receiving reassurance that he would not use the platform to share antisemitic or other harmful language. The Wall Street Journal reported that Ye’s account will not be eligible for monetization, and advertisements will not appear next to his posts.
Elon musk Request to Donal Trump
Elon Musk, who owns X, has previously shown support for Ye and even conducted a poll resulting in the reinstatement of former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account. However, Trump has said that he has no interest in returning to Twitter and will stick with his new platform, Truth Social.
key Point Summary
Kanye West’s Twitter account has been restored by the X social media platform after an eight-month suspension. The reinstatement follows Ye’s violation of Twitter’s rules against incitement to violence and his earlier suspension for sharing antisemitic content. While Ye’s account will not be eligible for monetization, his return to Twitter has been widely discussed and marks another instance of X’s support for free speech.
