Ye returns to Twitter with "Shalom" tweet
Why it matters: Ye's page was restricted last month due to antisemitic tweets that led Adidas and several other companies to drop the artist. Musk has said he doesn't believe in lifelong bans and on Saturday reinstated former President Trump's Twitter account, though Trump had yet to tweet as of Monday morning.
For the record: Musk said Twitter "did not consult with or inform me" before restoring Ye's page, but he did welcome him back on Sunday via Twitter.
What they're saying: After posting a tweet testing whether he was unblocked, Ye tweeted: "Shalom : )"
- He has indicated that he doesn't plan to return to Twitter and will keep to his Truth Social social media platform.
Editor's note: This article has been corrected by removing a reference to the number of followers on Trump’s Twitter account. He has 87.4 million followers, not 422,700.
