Musk asked his more than 116 million followers whether to restore Trump’s Twitter account or not.

Which means ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God.’
Washington. A few days after former US President Donald Trump announced that he would contest the 2024 election, Elon Musk, the new owner of social media company Twitter, conducted a survey asking people whether Trump’s Twitter account should be restored or not. In a tweet, Musk asked his over 116 million followers whether to restore former President Trump’s Twitter account or not. After this, in another tweet, Musk used a Latin sentence, ‘Vox Populi, Vox Dei’. Which literally means ‘the voice of the people is the voice of God’.
However, when a user told Musk that it would have been better to include all users of Twitter in this survey, Musk agreed with him. Musk said that when elections are about an important question, even people who don’t follow me hear about it. Former US President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter in 2021. This was done because of the risk of further flare-up of violence after the Capitol Hill riots broke out. While earlier this week, he has announced that he will stake his claim for the presidential election again in 2024. Significantly, Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has given rise to many concerns including freedom of expression and content moderation. While he calls himself a supporter of free speech.
Several decisions taken by Musk after buying Twitter have been widely criticized in the last few weeks. In which many other issues including heavy retrenchment, cases related to blue ticks are included. Elon Musk seems to have chosen a different path for his priorities. Ever since Musk, the world’s richest man, acquired Twitter for $44 billion, the three weeks that followed have proved to be tumultuous for the company.
