Twitter confirms it has Kanye West’s account blocked – @Ye – after posting a post anti-Semitic. “The account in question was blocked due to a violation of Twitter policies,” said spokeswoman Katie Rosborough. So let’s go and see what has happened in these days.
Kanye West: Twitter blocks @Ye account for anti-Semitic tweet
“I’m a little sleepy tonight, but when I wake up I go to death with 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is, I can’t actually be anti-Semitic because blacks are actually Jews. You guys have also played with me and tried to make fun of anyone who opposes your plans “. These are the words shared by Kanye West’s Twitter account, removed from the platform if necessary, but immortalized by user screenshots. In fact, the @Ye account had been inactive for a few years, but the singer’s return to the platform was greeted with great enthusiasm by Elon Musk. Except that, just twelve hours later, Kanye West launched an anti-Semitic tweet attracting the attention of the media – and not only -.

In response, Twitter blocked the @Ye account, although it is unclear how long it will really be. Platform rules state that a user’s profile may be in “read-only mode” for anywhere from 12 hours to seven days, depending on the breach. This means that Kanye West cannot tweet, retweet or “like” any post until the block is lifted, but other users can still interact with his content. At this point, therefore, it remains only to await the decisions of Twitter, which may or may not hand over the management of his account to Kanye West. Even if from the singer, as far as we have seen, there is really everything to be expected.
