Elon Musk reinstates former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account

SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, on Saturday announced that he was reinstating former President Donald Trump to the social media platform, nearly two years after the company suspended him, citing his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. 

The platform's CEO announced the decision Saturday evening after allowing his Twitter followers and others to vote on whether to reinstate the former president, with nearly 52% of those weighing in favoring Trump's return. The twitter poll logged more than 15 million votes.

"The people have spoken," Musk tweeted Saturday evening. "Trump will be reinstated."

Trump's account returned shortly afterward.

Previous tweets from Trump's account were viewable after its reinstatement, with the most recent from Jan. 8, 2021, when he posted that he would not be attending Joe Biden's inauguration.
