Elon Musk asks Twitter if Trump`s account should be reinstated

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has asked users of the microblogging website to vote on restoring former US President Donald Trump’s account, which was earlier subject to a lifetime ban for violence.

“Reinstate former President Trump,” the billionaire Twitter owner offered a chance to vote yes or no. “Trump poll gaining ~1M votes/hour,” he said in a later tweet.

Earlier in 2020, Trump’s account was suspended in the wake of the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill following the US presidential elections, which resulted in legal troubles for the former US President.

This new policy comes as no surprise as the world’s richest man has made several decisions this way, including one to buy Twitter.

On Friday, Musk began restoring accounts that had previously been subject to an indefinite ban for breaking the platform’s rules. Writer Jordan Peterson and comedian Kathy Griffin were among the first to have their accounts restored.

You won’t get tweets unless you specifically request it.” No different from the rest of the internet,” Musk said in an earlier tweet.

US lawmakers claimed that Twitter’s new CEO has taken dangerous steps that have undermined the integrity and security of the platform.

The letter also mentions the recent layoffs and resignations that have hit the company since Musk took to Twitter last month. He claimed that Musk has only prioritized growing profits, disregarding other key aspects of the company. (ANI)
