Meta subsidiaries Facebook and Instagram have given Donald Trump his account back. Meta believes that the risk to public safety has been sufficiently reduced, but has also called the ban impractical and bad for freedom of expression.

Meta announced last month that this moment was coming. The former president of the United States faces heavier penalties if he steps over the line again. If he violates the platforms’ community guidelines again, he could face another ban, lasting from one month to two years, depending on the severity of the offense. That a spokesperson said to Semafor, among others.

Donald Trump has served a total of two years of suspension. He was banned from the platform after he posted inflammatory messages online in the context of the storming of the US Capitol in 2021. At that time, the election results, a victory for Joe Biden, were formalized.

It remains to be seen whether the former president will use his Instagram and Facebook accounts. Twitter allowed Trump back on the platform last November, but he has never posted a tweet there since. The former president has his own social media, Truth Social, on which he is now active. This platform is based on Mastodon.
