The official Twitter account of former President of the United States of America (USA), Donald Trump, has been reinstated on the microblogging site.

The New Diplomat gathered that Twitter reinstated the account of Trump, after the Chief Ex­ecutive Officer(CEO) of the platform Elon Musk, posted a poll on Twitter on Friday, asking tweeps to decided if the former president’s account be reinstated.

The final poll results on Saturday showed 51.8 percent voted in favour, while 48.2 percent opposed the reinstatement. The poll had over 15 million votes.

“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” Musk tweeted after the poll result.

“Vox Populi, Vox Dei.” — a Latin word meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

It would be recalled that Trump’s Twitter account was banned in January 2021 following the post-2020 presidential election crisis, where a mob of his supporters attacked the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Trump was yet to tweet or comment on the reinstatement.

The development also comes days after the former president announced that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
