Donald Trump’s Twitter account reinstated after Musk poll

Former US president Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s Twitter account was reinstated on Saturday after the social media giant’s new owner Elon Musk conducted a poll in which a narrow majority of voters supported the move.

Elon Musk on Sunday confirmed to reinstate Trump’s Twitter account. “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” tweeted Musk.

Vox Populi, Vox Dei, a Latin phrase meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
The development comes at a time when Trump has announced that he was in the race for the next US Presidential election in 2024.

Trump was banned from Twitter for inciting the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by his supporters seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 US election in which Joe Biden was declared President.
As per the survey, slightly over 15 million Twitter users voted in the poll with 51.8 per cent voting in favour of reinstatement.
