Azealia Banks rejoins Twitter following news of Elon Musk acquisition

Azealia Banks is back on Twitter for the first time since 2020, when her account was suspended — not for the first time — for a series of transphobic tweets. Her return comes following Monday’s news that Elon Musk had reached a deal to acquire Twitter for $44 billion. Early this morning, she posted a screenshot on Instagram announcing her new handle, @Azealiaishere, with the caption “Oh girlssssssssss lmao we are in this bitch.” She hasn’t yet tweeted from the new account, but as of 12:30 p.m., she’s already racked up over 21,000 followers.
