Donald Trump says he has no interest in returning to Twitter after Elon Musk reinstated the former US president’s account on the social media platform.https://t.co/ohvMWVfHoj— Sky News Australia (@SkyNewsAust) November 21, 2022
Former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been restored after Elon Musk, the company’s new owner, said that the account will be reactivated following a ballot in which people narrowly supported the action. Just days after the failed uprising by pro-Trump supporters in the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, Trump was permanently banned from the social media platform by Twitter’s former management. As the US Congress sought to recognise Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s supporters invaded the Capitol.
Many users of the network, including Musk, have urged the former president to start using his account once more, but Trump has said nothing.
Trump’s reactivation comes 24 hours after Musk published a poll on Twitter asking followers if they thought the former president should be permitted to return.
The survey received more than 15 million responses, and 51.8% of participants said they wanted Trump back on Twitter.
Trump said that he will not be going back to Twitter in a post on Truth Social, a social networking platform he has been using ever since getting his initial lifetime ban.
“Vote positively now, but don’t be alarmed—we’re not going anywhere. The Truth Social is unique! “He published.
Musk at one point posted a sexual picture equating Trump’s absence from Twitter to a monk foregoing sex with a prostitute in an attempt to get Trump back into the network.
Despite the lack of activity, people may still view Trump’s previously protected tweet history thanks to his active handle (@realDonaldTrump). He can also be tagged in posts by users.
Musk considered doing more polls to determine public support for prospective measures in another tweet. A user was also informed by him that he could add a feature allowing for a poll of all users who are now active in a nation.
