Former U.S. President Donald Trump has been unbanned on Twitter following a poll conducted by new chairman Elon Musk. Over the weekend, Elon Musk conducted a Twitter poll to bring President Trump back. Nearly 15 million people voted with 51.8% saying yes they want to see the former President back on Twitter.
The Twitter team has reinstated the @realdonaldtrump account after nearly 22 months of ban on the platform. So far, the former U.S. President hasn’t tweeted through his account after getting unbanned over the last few hours.
The people have spoken.
Trump will be reinstated.

Probably, Donald Trump is hinting that he’s not willing to come back to Twitter again. He said that he would rather stick to his own social media platform Truth Social, launched soon after his ousting from Twitter in early 2021.
Donald Trump – A Lot of Problems At Twitter
Explaining the reason behind not joining again, the former U.S. President said that he sees “a lot of problems at Twitter”. Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in Las Vegas, Trump said:
“I hear we’re getting a big vote to also go back on Twitter. I don’t see it because I don’t see any reason for it. It may make it, it may not make it.”
He also said that following his ouster from Twitter, a lot of his followers left the social media platform and joined Truth Social. “I don’t see them going back onto Twitter,” added Trump.
The banning of Trump’s account came after he was accused of inciting violence at Capitol Hill. However, last Tuesday, Donald Trump formally announced that he’s back in the 2024 US presidential race.
On Saturday, November 19, Donald Trump said that he liked the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk. However, he called Twitter’s problems as “terrible” with too many fake accounts and negative engagement. “Truth Social has been very, very powerful, very, very strong, and I’ll be staying there,” added Trump.
Even since the Twitter acquisition, Elon Musk has been working diligently to solve the bots issue on the platform. The world’s richest man is open to taking feedback on what can be done to improve the platform experience.
