Twitter has reinstated Project Veritas as a non-profit journalist investigative journalism organization on Sunday. It is now the most recent account to be granted access to the platform by Elon Musk.
Officials restricted Project Veritas in 2021 for allegedly posting a video showing Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen admitting the social media platform built a system designed to freeze commenting where hate speech or violence is detected — without confirming if the alleged speech was hateful or violent.

“God bless @Project_Veritas for their work exposing Twitter when @ElonMusk was in the early stages of buying the platform,” Lorusso wrote.
Musk, who acquired the platform last month, has made several changes to the company’s structure. Since solidifying the $44 billion purchase last month, Musk has eliminated senior management officials, dubbed himself CEO, and dismissed more than half of the company’s staff.
Twitter employees quit the company in droves last week, after their new CEO made them promise to do so. “extremely hardcore”Work conditions that allow you to stay employed.
Despite losing his staff, who he has said is too large and disproportionately skews left-wing politically, Musk vowed to reverse lifetime bans for Twitter users kicked off under the company’s old guard.
“I think it’s essential to have free speech and for us to be able to communicate freely,”Musk stated this in an unreleased video that Project Veritas posted last summer. “If there are multiple opinions — but just make sure we’re not sort of driving the narrative.”
“In order for people to have trust in Twitter — I think it’s extremely important that there’ll be transparency,”Musk also added.
Musk recently removed bans on several prominent users, including Donald Trump, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson and Kathy Griffin.
With his latest move to unlock Project Veritas’ account, other users like Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Steve Bannon, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe still remain in Twitter jail.
Twitter permanently banned the account of the O’Keefe last year for allegedly sharing “private information”Without consent.
O’Keefe later said in a video that Twitter highlighted the apparent rule-violating post from Project Veritas as a video showing the Veritas reporters questioning Facebook Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen outside his home.
