After 15 million people voted to reinstate the brash former President, Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been restored, according to new CEO Elon Musk.
Trump had already started his own platform, Truth Social, when Musk tweeted, “The people have spoken,” giving him the opportunity to rejoin Twitter.
Musk asked followers to vote “Yes” or “No” on the question, “Reinstate former President Trump.”
When 51.8% of voters chose to bring the leader of the MAGA movement, Trump narrowly prevailed in the viral vote.
Musk penned the Latin phrase “Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” which translates to “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
According to Musk, the poll received 134 million views, which is a reasonable statistic coming from the online con man who keeps drawing in the crowds with his outlandish announcements.
Trump’s following soared after the account was restored, and everyone is anxiously awaiting to see what happens next.
Before his account was banned due to suspicions that he was inciting violence during the Capitol riots on January 6, the former president had 88 million followers.
As a result, Trump developed Truth Social, an alternative social media platform where he expresses himself freely.
Trump hаs previously denied wаnting to return to Twitter due to his commitment to his new project, but with а third presidentiаl cаmpаign in the works, he might be looking to increаse his influence.
