Twitter reinstates high-profile journalists after Thursday suspension

(NBC) - Twitter has reinstated several high-profile journalists, suspended from the social media giant.

On Thursday, December 15, Twitter suspended accounts belonging to journalists working for the New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, and other independent journalists.

This comes after Elon Musk acquired the social media company a few months ago.

He has accused the journalists of sharing private information about his whereabouts.

Musk also said the suspensions stemmed from Twitter's new rules banning private jet trackers.

Furthermore, Musk added that the accounts had a seven day suspension.

However, Twitter reinstated those accounts early Saturday after users voted in a poll, posted by Musk, to allow the journalists back on the platform.

Afterwards, Musk responded to poll writing, "The people have spoken."
