As reported by Jewish Press, Musk first Tweeted,

Yes, “decolonization” necessarily implies a Jewish genocide, thus it is unacceptable to any reasonable person

Musk since clarified with

As I said earlier this week, “decolonization”, “from the river to the sea” and similar euphemisms necessarily imply genocide.

Clear calls for extreme violence are against our terms of service and will result in suspension.

Does tweeting either “decolonization”, or “from the river to the sea”, result in a suspension from Twitter?

    Huh, I would have guessed some careless journalist split the quote, but apparently that's how Musk put it. I guess Twitter middle-management toned it down or they don't have enough people or even AI bots to enforce it exactly as Musk said. Or he mistyped what he meant, or changed his mind a little, etc. Dec 6, 2023 at 22:51
  • Germany might help here: "While promoting free speech, [Musk] has approved 80% of governmental requests to remove information from Twitter, up from about 50% under the platform’s previous leadership." (src) I guess somebody from Germany needs to flag your tweets and their gov't to inform Twitter, since they're illegal there, I've heard. Dec 7, 2023 at 9:48

    Well, good to know Alex Jones is back on X, after a "democratic" poll. npr.org/2023/12/10/1218431610/… I wonder if Musk conducted something like that before deciding to ban the word "decolonization". Dec 12, 2023 at 23:50
