After saying that he has not yet decided to remove Donald Trump’s ban on Twitter, the new owner of the social network, Elon Musk, decided to launch a consultation among users of the social network to vote on the reinstatement of the former US president.
“Reinstate former President Trump”, the billionaire published on Friday (18), with the opportunity to vote yes or no.
As of this Saturday morning (19), more than 10 million accounts have already voted, and “yes” has received more than 52% of the vote in the online poll.
Less than 11 hours before voting closed, “No” had 47.7% of the vote, giving no concrete indication of what the outcome would be.
Musk released the survey late Friday, hours after restoring several suspended user accounts in the name of free speech.
“It’s fascinating to observe this suggestion!”, Musk tweeted this Saturday, as he celebrated the revelation of the night’s voting – about 1 million per hour.

Musk left open the possibility of the former Republican leader returning to Twitter in May. But the move caused confusion in American society and politics, especially in the aftermath Trump has announced that he will run for the White House in 2024🇧🇷
While celebrating that Twitter is in “good hands” with Musk, the Republican candidate has said in recent days that he will remain on the social network, even though the site has given him a much smaller audience compared to Twitter. He has more than 88 million followers.
