At the end of the poll he had launched the day before and which collected nearly 15 million votes, the boss of Twitter announced the reactivation of the account of Donald Trump, banned from the platform almost two years ago.
Elon Musk rehabilitated the Twitter account of former US President Donald Trump on November 19, banned from the social network after the assault on the Capitol in Washington in January 2021.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be restored, ”wrote the new boss of Twitter on his own account after the result of a survey launched among his subscribers.
More than 15 million responded and 51.8% voted “yes” to the return to the platform of the man who recently announced his desire to run for the 2024 US presidential election.
A few minutes after Elon Musk’s message, Donald Trump’s account was visible again, the last tweet dating from January 8, 2021.
The number of subscribers was erratic, rising in less than two hours to three million before falling sharply. At the time of this article’s publication, the account has nearly 10 million subscribers. The boss of Twitter assured that his teams were currently working to restore the entire fanbase of the 45th president of the United States on the social network.
Notably, Donald Trump now has 4.57 million subscribers on Truth Social, the network he launched after his ouster from the blue bird platform.
Claiming his commitment to freedom of expression, Elon Musk has already reinstated several other suspended user accounts the day before.
Shortly after the finalization of the acquisition of the platform for 44 billion dollars at the end of October, the leader had assured that no major decision on the contents or reactivation of account would take place without the intervention of a dedicated council. A gesture intended, among other things, to reassure advertisers, the group’s main source of income. He has not publicly indicated whether this council has been established.
