Earlier, Trump’s Twitter account was reinstated Saturday after a narrow majority of respondents supported the move .In the poll that received 15,085,458 votes, 51.8 per cent voted yes and 48.2 per cent were against it.

“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,’ Musk tweeted on Saturday. Trump’s Twitter account appeared to be back as of Saturday evening and the last tweet was dated January 8, 2021, in which Trump said, “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

On being asked whether he plans to return to Twitter, the former president said he may not. “I don’t see it because I do not see any reason for it,” Trump said, adding that he would stick with his new platform Truth Social, the app developed by his Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) startup.

Trump was banned from the platform early last year for his role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by a mob of his supporters seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 election.Then legal affairs and policy chief at Twitter, Vijaya Gadde, was at the forefront of the decision to suspend Trump’s Twitter account.

Gadde had tweeted that the “account of @realDonaldTrump has been permanently suspended from Twitter due to the risk of further violence. We’ve also published our policy enforcement analysis – you can read more about our decision here”, linking to a Twitter blog post about the company’s decision to permanently suspend Trump’s Twitter account.
