His Twitter account has been unblocked
“Shalom”: Scandal rapper Kanye West has reported back on Twitter. After Trump’s comeback, West’s account was also reactivated.
After Donald Trump (76), Kanye West (45) has now made it back to Twitter. The scandal rapper reported back on Sunday evening with a short tweet: “Test. Test. Check if my Twitter is unblocked.” A few hours later he sent a short “Shalom” combined with a smiley afterwards. The Hebrew word “shalom” roughly means “peace”, but is also used as a greeting. West’s account was only suspended in October after repeatedly violating the short message service’s guidelines.
In recent months, the musician has repeatedly made a name for himself with racist and anti-Semitic statements and, in addition to his Twitter account, also lost numerous advertising partners such as the German sporting goods manufacturer Adidas. The new Twitter boss Elon Musk reacted already on the latest post from Kanye West. He wrote underneath: “Don’t kill what you hate. Save what you have.”
Elon Musk surveyed Twitter users on Donald Trump’s comeback
However, Musk replaced the English word “You” with “Ye”, the artist name of KanyeWest and made for a play on words. The musician’s revival on Twitter follows the return of ex-US President Donald Trump to Twitter. Musk previously surveyed Twitter users, the majority of whom were in favor of a Trump comeback. The Republican, who wants to become President of the United States again in 2024, has not yet used his regained communication tool.
