Elon Musk, the owner of X (formerly known as twitter, has reactivated the twitter account of famous American singer and fashion designer, Kanye Omari West, popularly known as Kanye West or Ye.
The reinstatement comes after the rapper’s account was suspended in December 2022 for violating the platform’s rules on inciting violence with his multiple antisemitic comments.
In October, Kanye tweeted a statement indicating that he would go “death con 3” on Jewish people, leading to his account being locked. However, he was soon readmitted to the platform. Not long after returning, he praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazis and posted an image of a swastika blended with a Star of David, which triggered a formal suspension imposed by Elon Musk, the owner of X.
According to a report made by the Wall Street Journal, West’s account has been reinstated but with certain limitations. He will not be able to monetize his account, and no ads will appear next to his posts. The account now also displays a golden verification tick, signifying that X recognizes it as an official business account.

However, with the account now active, West’s 31.5 million followers can once again keep up with the latest updates from the singer and designer.
