It’s not all rainbows and unicorns over at Twitter HQ, yet.
CEO Elon Musk reportedly agreed to restore the platform’s content moderation tools which had been blocked for some workers.
The groups that Musk met with included the ADL and NAACP, who are eager to expand censorship on the platform.
According to Bloomberg, Musk recently promised civil rights leaders that he would restore access to content moderation.
The Twitter CEO’s decision comes after civil rights organizations raised worries about Musk’s plan to eliminate censorship and restore suspended accounts.
Twitter recently limited the number of people with access to the dashboard of tools, Bloomberg reported.
After Musk announced that witter would be unbanning a number of blacklisted users, he has since said they won’t be allowed to return to the platform for “at least a few more weeks.”
ADL representative Yael Eisenstadt, Jessica Gonzalez, the head of digital rights group Free Press, and Rashad Robinson, the president of Color of Change said Musk agreed with their concerns about speech on the platform.
Musk said he would create speech policies to protect “disadvantaged communities” and make the reasoning behind decisions to restore accounts of individuals who have been barred from the platform more clear.
“He said he would continue consulting with the people of color, religious minorities and people most impacted by hate and disinformation on the platform,” said Free Press’s Gonzalez.
