If you are wondering whether to unblock Trump again
Donald Trump, who is at the center of various investigations and wants to return to the White House, has access to Twitter again
Musk let Twitter users vote on whether Trump’s account should be reinstated. Just a few minutes after a small percentage of daily active users upvoted, the profile was reactivated.
Three weeks ago, Musk announced that a board would be created to deal with controversial content before major accounts were reinstated. This is already obsolete.
Why Trump hasn’t used his Twitter profile yet, despite unlocking it
So far, Trump has always emphasized that he wants to stick with his own Twitter copy, Truth Social. In a speech on Saturday, he said, “I don’t see any reason” to return to Twitter. “Truth Social has been very, very strong, very, very strong, and I’m going to stay there.
Bots Voted: If you complain about too many bots (fake profiles) and let them vote on Trump’s comeback
Many of Musk’s alleged followers are likely to be fake accounts or bots used for political propaganda or criminal fraud.
Until Musk took over, Twitter executives always maintained there was no way the ex-president would return. Musk, who recently acknowledged the policy positions of Trump’s Republicans, emphasized months ago that in his opinion there should be no lifetime bans on the services. He specifically cited Trump as an example.
What Trump previously wrote about Musk
Trump has been banned from Twitter since January 2021. On January 6, he expressed condolences on stage with his supporters who stormed the Capitol – the seat of the US Parliament in Washington.
Kaiser Musk’s favorite pastime
Musk last week fired other Twitter employees who criticized him internally or publicly.
Leave with severance or commit to overtime and Musk’s “hardcore” corporate culture 🤔
Musk gave the employees who remained after his first wave of layoffs an ultimatum to either work overtime or leave the company.
Elon Musk’s “take it or leave it” was not well received. Hundreds of employees have voluntarily left Twitter, including many experienced top people.

Cohen’s tweet is a hoax.
Twitter before Elon vs. Twitter with Elon
People are starting to say that Elon Musk is not actually a real engineer. But he definitely said, “I don’t know why people think Twitter is so complicated. I could fix it in a weekend.” And then proceeded to screw everything up. That’s exactly like an engineer.

The real reason behind Elon’s Twitter mess
Elon Musk probably didn’t send a chain letter in 2008.
That’s what he got out of it now… 😱

Now imagine that whoever runs Twitter also runs a car factory.

Elon Musk is almost like Steve Jobs except that Steve Jobs was competent.
