DOGE supporter, and owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, came out on the 20th of November 2022, to announce the return of former US President Donald Trump to Twitter’s platform.
The people have spoken.
Trump will be reinstated.
Vox Populi, Vox Dei. https://t.co/jmkhFuyfkv

His tweet was simple, the people have, Vox Populi Vox Dei, which when translated to English says the voice of the people is the voice of God.
This was after Elon Musk posted a fool on Twitter asking the public if President Trump should be reinstated on the platform. As at the end of the pool 135 million people saw it and 15 million people voted with more than half (51.8%), voting in favor of bringing back former President Trump. And this garnered a lot of reaction from Twitter users.
Some believe it is a strategic publicity move both to get attention and to increase Twitter traffic. With the amount of activity surrounding Trump’s tweets, it’s believed that both fans and people who dislike him will be tweeting about his tweet and possibly retweeting.
What does believe this is a depiction of the power of freedom of speech since the majority of those who voted, believe in the 1st amendment rights. Yet, that would only be admissible if the votes were cast by real people and not by bots.
Now Donald Trump has been reinstated there is commotion caused by this development and trump hasn’t tweeted yet full stop in response to all this Elon Musk did what he does best. He tweeted a meme.

Though a questionable choice, it is a fitting description of the situation of things on Twitter. When Donald Trump was removed from Twitter he created his own social media platform which he called, Truth Social.
It seems Trump has no intention of returning to Twitter, choosing instead to stick with his platform. He says that Truth Social has been going through the roof with engagement, and its engagement rate is even better than that of Twitter. So he will be staying off Twitter for now.
Let’s see what the future holds.
