Meta will restore Trump’s Facebook account ‘in the coming weeks’ - TechCrunch

Quick Summary:

Two years after the company formerly known as Facebook suspended then-President Donald Trump’s accounts indefinitely, it’s bringing him back.

Meta made the announcement of its decision to restore former president Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts on Wednesday, saying that it would do so in “the coming weeks.

The Oversight Board criticized Meta at the time for making up new rules for Trump’s open-ended punishment, which it issued after the former president incited violence during the January 6 riot at the U.S.Capitol.
