Last month, Twitter banned hundreds of accounts tied to the alt-right, an ideology that’s a mix of racism, white nationalism, and populism.
But on Saturday, it undid its ban on one of the alt-right's most prominent voices: Richard Spencer, leader of the white nationalist group The National Policy Institute, who made headlines for shouting "Hail Trump! Hail victory!" at a rally in Washington, D.C. after the election.
Spencer's "verified" status was also restored to his account.
WATCH | Here's the speech that made Spencer infamous.
Please select one account for restoration; the others will remain suspended.
Spencer managed multiple accounts, including the Institute's account, Radix, and _AltRight_.
I worked on getting my personal reinstated first. Next will be Radix, NPI, _AltRight_, and WSP.— Richard ☝🏻Spencer (@RichardBSpencer) December 11, 2016
Spencer seemed convinced he could get the other accounts up despite Twitter's emails.
On Saturday, alt-right-friendly Breitbart News was also verified.
WATCH | When he was initially banned, Spencer posted a video comparing Twitter's alt-right bans to the "Night of the Long Knives," a sweep of executions by the Nazi Party to solidify Adolf Hitler's power. In an interview, he called the bans "corporate Stalinism."
But on Saturday, he seemed happy to be back.
