Kanye West Return to Twitter, After Instagram restricted

Kanye West posted on Twitter for the first time in over two years after being suspended by Meta on Friday. Elon Musk, who is in the midst of purchasing the social media network, applauded the action.

West, whose legal name has been changed to Ye, posted a photo of a hat that said 2024. Musk replied with a tweet that stated, “Welcome back to Twitter, my buddy.”


West’s latest tweet was published in November 2020, just after the most recent US presidential election. Following his first tweet on Friday, West released a second tweet that showed a photo of himself with Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg and accused him of booting him from Instagram.

A spokeswoman for Meta told CNN Business on Saturday that content from Kanye West’s account was removed and his account was restricted for breaking the company’s regulations. It did not disclose what about the content was inappropriate or what sort of limitation was placed.

The action follows West’s sharing of a since-deleted post that featured a screenshot of an “anti-Jewish” text exchange with Sean “Diddy” Combs, which was denounced by the American Jewish Committee.

In March, West was suspended for 24 hours by Instagram after throwing a racial insult at “Daily Show” presenter Trevor Noah.

This week, West sparked controversy by donning a “White Lives Matter” shirt and clothing numerous Black models in shirts with the same message, which the Anti-Defamation League called a “hate slogan,” at his Paris fashion show.
