Elon Musk said on Saturday that Donald Trump will be reinstated to Twitter after holding an online vote of the platform’s users.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
Trump’s account reappeared on the platform shortly after Musk’s tweet, with his previous posts. The last time he tweeted was on Jan. 8, 2021, with the message, “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

Musk had asked users to vote on whether to give Trump his account back after he was permanently suspended following the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
According to the post by Musk, 52% voted to reinstate Trump and 48% voted against it. The results showed that more than 15 million votes were cast.
Trump now posts on his own social media platform, Truth Social. Trump had encouraged his followers to vote in the poll, but wrote, “don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere.”
Musk had previously said that he would end Twitter’s ban on Trump when he took ownership. But when that happened, Musk then said that he was setting up a content moderation council, with no reinstatements until it convened. It’s unclear what happened to that panel or if it ever was formed, as Musk’s ownership has been marked by mass layoffs and significant resignations, and a flight of advertisers.
The previous Twitter management suspended Trump’s account on Jan. 8, 2021. “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
