The Twitter CEO granted an "amnesty" on Thursday to accounts on the platform that had previously been suspended after a poll asking users to vote "Yes" or "No" to whether accounts that had not "broken the law or engaged in egregious spam" should be reinstated. There were 3,162,112 votes cast during the 24-hour poll, and 72% of voters said "Yes." Following the poll's result, Elon tweeted "The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei," referencing a Latin phrase meaning, "the voice of the people, the voice of God".
