Donald Trump's Twitter account came back again to the leading social media network once again on Sunday.

The return of the account was made after the new CEO of the company Elon Musk organized a Twitter poll for reinstating the account of the former US President. 

More than 15 million votes participated in the poll, and 51.8% voted in the favour of reinstatement. 

Musk tweeted: “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.

During the poll, Musk revealed that the voting was affected by automated “bots”, suggesting to “clean up” Twitter polls from being influenced by “bot and trolls armies”.

Trump responded: “I don’t see any reason for it," adding that he would use his Truth app.

Twitter banned Trump after the 6 January capitol riots, explaining that his tweets were “highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal acts that took place at the US Capitol."
