People have spoken out. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei. https://t.co/jmkhFuyfkv

Musk also shared details of a poll he conducted asking people whether Trump should return to Twitter. “Reinstate former president Trump,” reads the poll question posed by him. Minutes after Musk’s tweet, Trump’s Twitter account went live and showed no suspension. In fact, all of these tweets – including the misleading ones – have now resurfaced on Twitter as well.
Why Donald Trump is banned from Twitter
On January 6, 2021, Trump tweeted, “75,000,000 Great Patriots Americans Vote for Me, THE FIRST AMERICA AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT again, will have a HUGE VOICE in the future. . They will not be belittled or treated unfairly in any way!!!”.
This is a few days before US president Joe Biden is supposed to be sworn in. accounts due to the risk of inciting further violence,” Twitter said in a blog post.
It always happens under Musk
Musk has been pretty vocal even when he hasn’t bought Twitter about Trump’s ban. He has said he is not going to suspend Trump in the first place. Since taking over Twitter, Musk initially said he wouldn’t take back any of the banned accounts. This was less than 10 days ago. However, on November 19, he started doing a poll on Twitter. Musk in a tweet said that 134 million people viewed the poll on Twitter. Nearly 15 million people voted in the poll with 51.8% in favor of restoring Trump’s account.
Trump’s return to Twitter has always been a matter of time under Musk. He made a lot of suggestions about reinstating the former US president and now it has officially happened.
