Musk’s Twitter poll to bring back Trump leads at 11 million votes

An ‘absolute free speech’ Elon Musk decided to ask the public if Donald Trump – former president and 2024 Republican challenger of Joe Biden – should be allowed to speak freely on Twitter, rather than simply take back Trump’s account on day one. .

The former president has been banned from the podium because a group of hacked federal Trump supporters were let into the Capitol and wreaked havoc on Jan. 6, 2021. After, after Trump gave a speech saying, “I know everyone here will soon be heading to the Capitol to… peacefully and patriotic Make your voices heard.”

Musk’s poll on whether he should bring former President Donald Trump back to the podium had more than 11 million votes in less than 24 hours.

While Trump took a big early lead, the vote tightened on Saturday morning, currently standing at 52.3% “yes” to 47.7% “no.”

“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk wrote on Twitter, which means “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

The survey is scheduled to last for 24 hours.

Musk’s departure from “the tyranny of free speech” is undoubtedly due to the realities of the advertising market – major companies have already halted their campaigns on Twitter due to Musk’s own takeover of the platform. according to from the insideAds accounted for 89% of Twitter’s revenue in 2021.

In response, Musk assured advertisers in late October that Twitter “will not become a free-for-all.”

While Alex Jones will not be allowed back on the platform, Babylon Bee is back after being banned for a transgender prank, as are Jorrdan Peterson and Kathy Griffin.

Maybe Elon should poll Alex Jones next? After all, the frogs turned out to be anomalies.
