Twitter’s new CEO stated that former US President Donald Trump would return to Twitter because the people had spoken.
After receiving a slim majority of votes in Elon Musk Twitter poll to reinstate Trump after a lifetime ban following the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, Trump’s Twitter account appeared to reactivate.
The online poll received more than 15 million votes, with 51.8% in favour of Trump’s restoration.
“The conversation is over. Trump will get his job back. “Vox Dei, Vox Populi,” “the world’s richest man” wrote in a tweet on Sunday, Nov. 20.
No “Reason” to Go Back
Trump didn’t appear very keen to resume using Twitter, according to The Guardian’s account. At the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting, the former president was asked about it by a panel. He responded via video that he doesn’t see any “reason” for returning to the app.
He announced that he will keep using Truth Social, a platform developed by his company, Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).
The former president’s permanent suspension was a “mistake,” according to Musk, who had previously stated his intentions to have him reinstated before taking control of the social media business.
The businessman pointed out that Trump’s Truth Social was created as a result of the ban and that other members of the “right” will follow suit if they are prohibited from expressing their opinions on social media.
This, according to Musk, is “frankly worse” than allowing them to communicate on a single forum.
Following the assault on the US Capitol on January 6, Twitter banned Trump permanently for allegedly breaking their guidelines about inciting violence. In 2014, Trump declared his intention to run for office once more and praised Musk, stating he had always loved the man.
The Republican leader continued by saying that the app is also rife with bots and fake accounts, which is what first caused Musk to back out of the $44 billion acquisition agreement.
Is Trump Welcome on Facebook?
After the former president announced that he would seek office once more, Meta said on Nov. 16 that the social media platform has no intentions to reinstate Trump’s account.
There is still a chance that Trump will visit the location soon since the ban was put in place two years ago and will be reviewed in January 2023.
However, if Trump chooses to return to the platform and is given a chance, Facebook will not hold him to the same standard of fact-checking, which was a major problem during his previous presidency for disseminating false material online and in interviews.
This is due to Facebook’s new policies, which specify that comments posted by politicians or other well-known people will not be subject to fact-checking on the platform.
