Meta reactivates Donald Trump's accounts

The company led by Mark Zuckerberg unblocks the former president after more than two years of censorship.

Meta Platforms Inc. has reactivated Donald Trump's accounts. As of Thursday, the former president can once again post content on his Facebook and Instagram profiles. A few days ago, the company issued a statement previewing its latest move:

Like any other Facebook or Instagram user, Mr. Trump is subject to our Community Standards. In light of his violations, he now also faces heightened penalties for repeat offenses ... In the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating content, the content will be removed, and he will be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation.

The social network led by Mark Zuckerberg blocked Donald Trump's accounts after the assault on the Capitol occurred on January 6, 2021. Now, it remains to be seen whether the former president will post content on his Facebook and Instagram profiles or, on the contrary, if he will continue to spread his opinions on his Truth Social platform.

In November, Twitter, under the direction of Elon Musk, reactivated Trump's account. "The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei," Musk said.
