Kanye West’s Twitter account is back


It looks like Kanye West is back on Twitter, after he was previously suspended for around eight months. He was thrown off the platform last December, after he Tweeted an image of a swastika inside of a Star of David. The rapper’s account now has a gold check, indicating that Ye is an official business. “I tried my best,” Elon Musk wrote before suspending Kanye. “Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.” According to Twitter, “Any organization that purchases a subscription to Verified Organizations will receive a gold checkmark and square avatar if they are a business or non-profit, or a grey checkmark and square avatar if they are a governmental or multilateral organization.” The New York Times‘ Ryan Mac says Kanye’s account has a gold check because the platform views Ye as his “overall brand.” He explains, “It’s unclear if he will run ads, but as a gold checkmark verified organization, he has the ability to do so.”
