Elon Musk has said he will reinstate former President Trump’s Twitter account on Saturday night after being barred from the platform for almost two years.
The controversial decision comes only three weeks after he acquired the social media company for $44 billion and after Musk ran a public vote in which 15 million users cast their ballots.
After 24 hours of voting, the poll saw 51.8% pushing for Trump to be reinstated to the platform.
Musk tweeted: ‘The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.’
On Tuesday, Trump announced he was running for president once again in 2024 but also stated he would not return to Twitter, preferring instead to focus on his Truth Social app.
