Elon Musk restored Donald Trump’s Twitter account after submitting the decision to a poll on the microblogging website. “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” Musk tweeted shortly after the 24-hour Twitter poll on his account ended. More than 15 million people — out of 237 million daily Twitter users — voted on the poll. While 51.8 percent voted to reinstate Trump’s account, 48.2 percent voted against.
Now, after the former US president’s account resurfaced on Twitter, internet users began flooding the social media website with hilarious memes, comments and random polls poking fun at Mr. Musk. In one of the polls, a Twitter user asked if Mr. Musk should sell Twitter. In another poll, the user asked whether the new Twitter owner should be banned from the platform.

If Elon Musk decides whether to reinstate Trump based on a Twitter poll, should he abide by the results of a similar poll regarding banning his operational control of Twitter.

Several users also suggested that Mr. Musk should give Twitter to a seventh grader, while some said he should sell the platform for a dollar.
Should Elon Musk be replaced as CEO of Twitter by a 7th grader who is really good at science?

Donald Trump had over 88 million users when his account was suspended. Earlier, he had stated that he will not be returning to the popular platform, but would instead stay on his own network, Truth Social, launched after being banned from Twitter.
Appearing via video at a Republican Jewish Coalition rally in Las Vegas, Trump said he welcomed Musk’s poll and was a fan of the man himself, but seemed to reject any return. “I like him… you know he’s a character and again I like characters,” he said, adding: “He’s done a poll and it was very overwhelming… but I got something called … Truth Social.”
When asked if he would return to the platform, he said: “I don’t see it because I don’t see any reason to.”
