Back on Twitter – level 2

25-11-2022 07:00

When Elon Musk became the CEO of Twitter, he reactivated accounts of some controversial people.

Twitter banned the account of Jordan Peterson, a Canadian psychologist; he made a negative comment about transgender people. Twitter also banned rapper Kanye West because of his anti-semitic post, and Andrew Tate for his comments against women. After the attack on the US Capitol in January 2021, Twitter ended the account of US former president Donald Trump.

All these people can use Twitter again, which some celebrities protested. Among them were actress Whoopi Goldberg and model Gigi Hadid, who are leaving the platform.

Difficult words: reactivate (to make active again), controversial (something that many people talk or disagree about), anti-semitic (against Jewish people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
