Kanye West’s Twitter has given us all whiplash after being suspended, then unsuspended, then suspended again, and finally unsuspended all within a few hours.

Honestly, we cannot keep up.

The rapper, 46, was first suspended from the social media platform in November 2022, having been restricted for tweeting an antisemitic message.

After returning to Elon Musk’s platform, he was suspended again in December 2022 after sharing an image of a swastika blended with a star of David.

But, his account looks to be back up and running, although the musician – known as Ye – is yet to tweet.

He didn’t get a chance to do so straight away though as, just a few hours after it returned, his account appeared to be suspended again, before coming back for the final time.

It’s said that while the Gold Digger hitmaker is back on the site, he won’t be eligible to monetise his account, and ads won’t appear next to his posts.

His return comes after Musk admitted he ‘tried’ to keep West’s account active.

Musk tweeted: ‘I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.’

The Twitter/X owner previously described his approach to content moderation as: ‘If in doubt, let the speech exist.’

Following his antisemitic comments on both Twitter and Instagram, West’s career plummeted in other aspects.

Adidas said it was ending production of the Yeezy-branded products, a fashion collaboration with West, with ‘immediate effect,’ describing his remarks as ‘unacceptable, hateful and dangerous.’

West’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian – who he split from last February – has also addressed his controversies.

Speaking on The Kardashians recently, the Skims founder burst into tears.

Kim, 42, confided in younger sister Khloé Kardashian, 39, after her ex hit the headlines, admitting that her ‘instinct’ over the controversy was: ‘Wow, I can never talk to this person again,’ but this changed when she thought of her kids.

The reality star was married to Kanye from 2014 to 2022 and shares four children with him: North, Saint, Psalm and Chicago.

In the episode, Kim talked to Khloé after an article appeared on-screen about West’s antisemitic comments, which also mentions him wearing a t-shirt embossed with a slogan that read ‘White Lives Matter’.

Kim stressed that she was ‘not ok’ as she broke down, saying West is no longer ‘the person I married’.

This isn’t the first time Musk has reinstated a controversial Twitter account.

Late last year, Donald Trump was also reinstated on Twitter following a poll from Musk.

It reversed a ban that kept the former US President off his favourite social media platform in the wake of the deadly riot on January 6, 2021.

Musk made the announcement after holding a vote asking Twitter users to click ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on whether Trump should be allowed back.

The ‘yes’ vote won with 51.8%.

Reps for Kanye West and Twitter have been contacted for comment.
