“Reinstate former President Trump: Yes or No,” the poll simply asked.
Fifty-two percent of users agreed he should be allowed back to the platform, which has already restored other lifetime bans, including satirical account Babylon Bee, Kathy Griffin, and Jordan Peterson.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” Musk wrote. “Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”
According to Musk, over 134 million people saw the poll.
Trump was previously banned from Twitter immediately after the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol building for allegedly inciting the violence or for fear he could use the platform in such a way.
“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk added in a subsequent tweet, a Latin phrase that translates to “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
In another tweet, Musk mulled the option of utilizing more polls to help gauge support for potential actions. He also told one user that he could add a feature to be able to poll all active users in a country.

Trump’s handle @realDonaldTrump has been activated and users on Twitter are able to tag him in posts. As of Saturday evening, there were no new tweets.
Meanwhile, Trump posted several times to Truth on Saturday, including posts about his ongoing trials in New York, the FBI, and the midterm election results.

Trump told Fox News Digital in April that he would not be returning to Twitter, even if he were to be eventually reinstated.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump said at the time. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on TRUTH.”
Musk has faced near-constant criticism since taking over the platform as he has fired most of its senior leadership and staff, overhauled the platform’s subscription and verification system, and announced a number of changes to its moderation.
