November 22, 2022: -Donald Trump said he had no attraction in producing to Twitter even as a slim majority voted in favour incited the former U.S. President, who was excluded from the social media service that incites violence, in a poll organized by recent owner Elon Musk.
Over 15 million Twitter users voted, with 51.8% voting favour reinstatement.

Trump had appeared less than keen. “I don’t see any reason behind it,” the former president said through the video when asked if he planned to come back to Twitter at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s leadership meeting every year.
He added that he would stick with his recent platform Truth Social, the app developed by the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) startup. He said he had better user response than Twitter and was doing “phenomenally well”.
On Tuesday, Trump launched a bid to regain the White House in 2024 that praised Musk and added that he had always liked him. But Trump also said Twitter is suffering from bots and pretend accounts and that its problems were “incredible”.

He stated that Twitter would not reinstate any prohibited users until there was a “clear process for doing so.” there needs to be more information about the process or the moderation council.
