Trump may return on Twitter: Elon Musk polled and asked people - should President Trump's account be restored?
Former US President Donald Trump may return to Twitter. Twitter's new boss Elon Musk posted a Twitter poll on restoring Trump's account. He asked, should President Trump's account be restored. Yes or no
The Twitter boss wrote alongside it: 'Vox populi, vox Dei' - a Latin phrase meaning 'the voice of the people is the voice of God'. Musk has also announced his plans for content moderation. He said, the new Twitter policy is freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach.
Musk also said that tweets containing hate will be deboosted and they will also be demonetized. So there will be no ad or other income on Twitter. You won't find the tweet unless you specifically search for it, which is no different from the rest of the internet. He clarified that this would only apply to individual tweets and not the entire account.
In 2020, after the Capitol Hill violence, Donald Trump described his supporters who committed violence on Twitter as revolutionaries. After this, he said that he would not go to the Presidential Inauguration (Biden's swearing-in) to be held on January 20, 2020. Taking action on this, Twitter suspended his account forever.
Twitter said in its blog post, we had already said that if Trump ignores Twitter's policy even further and makes provocative tweets, he will take strict action against them. Even after that, he made inflammatory tweets. We have said earlier also that the account of any big leader is not above our rules. In the post, Twitter had also inserted Trump's tweets and also wrote his analysis, which became the reason for the permanent suspension of his account.
In the past, during the Twitter deal, Elon Musk insisted on activating such accounts along with Trump, which has been banned for various reasons. Musk has always described himself as a big supporter of free speech. Even when Twitter banned former US President Donald Trump, Elon Musk said that he wanted to improve the platform.
Some time ago Donald Trump said that he is not returning to Twitter. In an interview with Fox News, Trump said, "I will stick to my social media platform Truth." During this, while praising Musk, Donald Trump said that he is a good man and he hopes that he will improve Twitter.
