Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, published a poll on Twitter on Friday, on reactivating the account of former US President Donald Trump.
Musk asked users to vote on whether to reactivate Trump’s account, which was blocked by the previous owners.
Musk said last May that “banning the former president was a mistake” and that it was “a morally stupid decision,” according to the Washington Post.
Twitter had permanently banned Trump’s account on the platform, following the events of January 2021, 2021 in the Washington Congressional Building.
Other platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, blocked Trump’s accounts in connection with the incident.

Trump filed a case in October 2021 on Twitter to force them to reactivate his account, as he considered that banning Twitter violated the First Amendment to the US Constitution and the Florida Social Networking Law.
Before being banned from social media, Trump had 89 million followers on Twitter, 35 million on Facebook, and 24 million on Instagram.
