The new owner of Twitter Elon Musk brought back three high-profile accounts that were suspended for violating the platform's rules.

However, Musk didn't make a decision about former President Donald Trump's Twitter account.

Musk said in a statement: "Trump decision has not yet been made." His comments came after thousands of Twitter users questioned the billionaire's Twitter policies. 

Twitter CEO said that he brought back comedian Kathy Griffin, academic Jordan Peterson, and conservative satire site Babylon Bee.

Twitter permanently suspended the former US President's account in January 2021, after the events of the 6 January in the Capitol and witnessed chaotic and violent scenes. 

The American businessman's fortune has fallen by $70 billion since the first reports of his acquisition of Twitter in April, according to Reuters.

The agency reported that Musk's fortune is currently estimated at $194.8 billion, which is linked to the drop in the share price of his electric car manufacturer, Tesla.

According to Reuters, investors fear that Musk is not paying enough attention to his electric car business, due to his purchase of Twitter, while competition in this sector is increasing.

On October 27, Musk completed the $44 billion purchase of Twitter, and according to documents published on October 31, in the database of the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Musk will dissolve the company's board of directors immediately after its purchase.
