Meta reinstates Trump’s Facebook, Instagram accounts
TECHDIGEST – Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta Platforms has reinstated the former U.S. President Donald Trump’s access to Facebook and Instagram after a two-year suspension.
Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that Facebook Global Affairs president, Nick Clegg, was considering reinstating the former president’s Facebook and Instagram accounts a few weeks ago.
Meta spokesperson, Andy Stone, has now confirmed the reinstatement in a statement seen by Ripples Nigeria on Friday.
Checks on the former President’s account, @realdonaldtrump on Instagram, and @Donald J. Trump on Facebook also show that he has been reinstated on both platforms.
