(CBrief) – Twitter boss Elon Musk has lifted another ban on Project Veritas, a right-leaning investigative journalism organization.
Last year, Twitter restricted the organization after allegedly posting a video showing Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen appearing to admit that the social media giant constructed a platform that was designed to freeze commenting when so-called hate speech or violence was detected by algorithms, but without actually confirming the speech was violent or hateful.
Project Veritas’ reinstatement was noted by Alex Lorusso, who is the executive producer of “The Benny Report” on Newsmax TV, who himself was recently reinstated to Twitter.

“God bless @Project_Veritas for their work exposing Twitter when @ElonMusk was in the early stages of buying the platform,” Lorusso added.
Musk is continuing to make major changes at the platform since he purchased it and took over its leadership.
On Friday, he announced that he had reinstated three people who had previously been banned, including one after he took over.
He had not, however, made a decision about whether to reinstate former President Donald Trump, though he since reinstated Trump after taking a poll on the matter, in which a majority of respondents favored his reinstatement.
“Kathie Griffin, Jorden Peterson & Babylon Bee have been reinstated. Trump decision has not yet been made,” Musk tweeted.

The survey on Trump, however, was questioned by some, including one of the former president’s top attorneys, Jenna Ellis.
“Why do you need a poll for this?” she tweeted in response to the survey.
