Popular Conservative radio show host and Founder of Infowars, Alex Jones, had his X (formerly Twitter) account reinstated after having it suspended more than five years ago.
The reversal comes after Elon Musk posted a poll on X, asking responders if Alex Jones should be allowed back on X, and respondents overwhelmingly said that he should be allowed to return.
Close to 2 million votes were cast by the time the poll closed, with about 70% voting in favour of Jones’s return.
“The people have spoken, and so it shall be,” said Musk responding to the poll he posted.
Infowars called the decision a “major First Amendment victory” and said that it’s “also a major opportunity to reach new millions who aren’t up to date on the world’s most pressing issues”.
