After being suspended by Twitter for his hunting photo, Sen. Steve Daines is restored to Twitter

Elon Musk’s Twitter restored the account of Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) on Tuesday after he was suspended in the wake of a photo of him and his wife hunting being set as his profile image.

“I’m free! Thanks, @elonmusk,”Following his account’s restoration, Sen. Daines tweets

The senator’s account was reinstated after Musk said his suspension was “being fixed.”

“This is being fixed,”Musk wrote. “Policy against showing blood in profile pic is being amended to ‘clearly showing blood without clicking on the profile pic.’”

“The intent is to avoid people being forced to see gruesome profile pics,”He added.

On Tuesday morning, Sen. Daines’ account was suspended after he changed his profile picture to a photo of him and his wife on a hunting trip.

“Twitter has ridiculously suspended @SteveDaines because his profile picture is of him and his wife hunting…What a disgrace!”Donald Trump Jr. responded by sharing a screenshot of the Tweet message that the senator received.

Twitter had locked Sen. Daines out of his account violating the platform’s “rules against graphic violence or adult content in profile images,”The senator was informed that he had to erase his profile photo to be able to access his account.

“You may not include graphic violence or adult content in your profile photo or profile header image,”Twitter sent a message directly to Daines. “We consider graphic violence to be any form of gory media related to death, serious injury, violence, or surgical procedures.”

“By clicking Delete, you acknowledge that your profile image violated the Twitter Rules,”The social media platform has been updated.

After the senator’s account was restored — without him having to delete his hunting photo — Musk announced that “Going forward, Twitter will be broadly accepting of different values, rather than trying to impose its own specific values on the world.”
