Twitter has said that it will take "less severe actions" against accounts that break rules. It will also not take drastic measures like limiting the reach of "policy of violating tweets," or asking accounts "to remove tweets," before they can use the platform again.
It also shared that any account will be able to appeal suspensions starting on February 1, 2023.

Twitter clarified that it will not reinstate accounts that were engaged in illegal activity, "threats of harm or violence, large-scale spam and platform manipulation, or when there was no recent appeal to have the account reinstated."
Going forward, we will take less severe actions, such as limiting the reach of policy-violating Tweets or asking you to remove Tweets before you can continue using your account. Account suspension will be reserved for severe or ongoing, repeat violations of our policies.

The conversation began in December last year when the Twitter Safety account tweeted that they had identified several policies "where permanent suspension was a disproportionate action for breaking Twitter rules."
