Donald Trump Makes A Comeback On Twitter After Extended Hiatus
In a significant turn of events, former U.S. President Donald Trump has made a return to Twitter after a suspension that lasted over two years. The suspension, which came into effect on January 20, 2021, was a consequence of the events surrounding the January 6 protests.
Notably, this ban wasn’t exclusive to Twitter; Trump also faced suspensions on other prominent social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, around the same time frame.
The lifting of this suspension came in the wake of Elon Musk’s appointment as Twitter’s CEO earlier this year. While the precise reasons for the reconsideration remain under speculation, it marks a new chapter in the relationship between the former president and the microblogging platform.
In his first tweet after the hiatus, Trump chose not to pen a message but rather posted a photograph – his recently released mugshot, accompanied by a direct link to his campaign website.
The subtle yet impactful return has since garnered significant attention from the media and the public alike, igniting varied reactions across the political spectrum.
