Dec 2 (Reuters) - Twitter Inc on Friday suspended Kanye West's account again, just two months after it was reinstated, after its owner Elon Musk said he had violated the platform's rules prohibiting incitement to violence.

Account will be suspended," Musk tweeted late on Thursday.

West's account was suspended within an hour of Musk's post, made in a reply to a Twitter user who had said "Elon Fix Kanye Please".

Before suspending Ye's account, which had over 30 million followers, Twitter had restricted one of his tweets.

The social media platform restored the rapper's account before the completion of its $44 billion takeover by Musk.

Musk responded that Ye's account was suspended for incitement to violence, and not for posting "an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari".

Musk also decided to reinstate former U.S. President Donald Trump's account after a majority of Twitter users voted in favor in a poll to bring back Trump. »

Geopolitics is a loser’s buzzword with a contagious idea

That changed in the course of the 2000s, and the word ‘geopolitics’ began its road to a dominance of political discourse.
