Ye Returns To Twitter After 2 Years, First Post Deleted Hours Later

Elon Musk, who is negotiating to buy Twitter, welcomed Kayne "Ye" West back to Twitter after he was censured Thursday by Instagram for a post that violated the social media platform's content policy.

  • West returned to Twitter on Friday, after Instagram deleted a post, appearing to criticize Mark Zuckerberg, the leader of Facebook and Instagram’s parent company, Meta.
  • The Instagram post invoked antisemitic tropes, and the account has been frozen.
  • “Look at this Mark, How you gone kick me off instagram” he tweeted with a blurry photo of him and Mark Zuckerberg singing karaoke.
  • The tweet was West’s first since November 2022.
  • In a tweet Saturday night, West reportedly elaborating on his antisemitic conspiracies, which seemed to focus on the music entertainment business.
  •  Twitter removed the tweet and locked the rapper’s account “due to a violation of Twitter’s policies,” a company spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch.
