Elon Musk has posted a poll on the microblogging platform asking users to vote on whether to reactivate former US President Donald Trump's account.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has posted a poll on the microblogging platform asking users to vote on whether to let former US President Donald Trump, whose account had previously been permanently suspended due to inciting violence, to reactivate it.

The billionaire Twitter founder urged people to reinstate former President Trump, giving them the option to choose yes or no. He then tweeted, “Trump poll approaching 1M votes/hour.”

Trump had legal issues earlier in 2020 because his account was terminated following the Capitol Hill uprising on January 6 following the US Presidential elections.

Musk has made multiple decisions in this way, including one to purchase Twitter, therefore the introduction of this new policy is not shocking.

Musk started restoring access to accounts on Friday that had previously been banned indefinitely for violating the platform’s policies. Jordan Peterson, a writer, and Kathy Griffin, a comedian, were among the first individuals to get their accounts restored.

In an earlier tweet, Musk stated, “The new Twitter policy allows for free expression, but not for unfettered reach. Hateful or negative tweets will be max deboosted and demonetized, so Twitter won’t get any advertising or other income from them. The tweet won’t be found until you actively look for it, which is same to how you would search the rest of the Internet.”

A group of US senators requested the nation’s antitrust regulator to supervise the social media platform’s consent decree and compliance with consumer privacy rules after the new Twitter CEO’s recent adjustments failed to convince them.
