Twitter Welcomes Back Trump

Poll determines the former US President should be allowed back on Twitter.

Elon Musk announced the day before yesterday that former President Donald Trump will be allowed back on Twitter.

Musk made the announcement after conducting an online poll that attracted more than 15 million votes.

Just over 51% of respondents voted to bring Trump back to the social media app.

Musk tweeted:

“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

It really shouldn’t have been put to a vote. Bringing Trump back should have been a given.

You either believe in free speech or you don’t, you can’t pick and choose. Free speech should not be contingent on majority approval or disapproval.

The idea that a former US President should be banned from expressing his views is, frankly, embarrassing.

Remember, dictators like the Ayatollah of Iran were permitted to remain on Twitter while Trump was banned.

And besides, Twitter was never as good as this classic Donald Trump tweet:

Twitter Trump-nuclear-button

Activist Karens were immediately triggered by news that Trump would be allowed to speak.

Shannon has pronouns in her bio, so we ought not to be surprised.

I’m not mocking her though. It’s terribly sad that freedom of speech is happening to her. Thoughts and prayers, Karen.

Thoughts and prayers.

    James, the key here is this is not a matte of seeking a ‘consensus’. What has happened to the concept of ‘cold hard, unemotional fact’? The fact is that removing Donald from Twitter was censorship of the first order, based on the unproven ‘assertion’ that he ‘organized’ the storming of the US Capitol Building.
