“Twitter” has restored the account of former US President Donald Trump, the owner of the company Elon Musk announced, quoted by DPA and BTA.
Musk ran a social media poll asking users if Trump’s account should be reinstated.
About 15 million users participated in the vote, and the idea was supported by 51.8 percent of them.
“The people have spoken. Trump’s account will be restored. Voice of the people – the voice of God,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
It is not yet clear whether the former president will start using Twitter again, as he has created his own platform called Truth Social.
During the vote on Twitter, Trump wrote on his new social media: “Now vote with positivity, but don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere. ‘Truth Social’ is something special.”
Trump’s Twitter account was blocked in January 2021, two days after his supporters stormed the US Capitol building and disrupted a joint session of Congress. Five people died in the clashes.
On Tuesday, he announced that he will try to return to the White House and run for the upcoming presidential election, which will take place in 2024.
