"I may be #exceptional, but gosh darn it, I'm just not #hardcore," tweeted one former employee, Andrea Horst, whose LinkedIn profile still reads "Supply Chain & Capacity Management (Survivor) @Twitter."

Former President Trump will be reinstated on Twitter, Elon Musk said in a tweet Saturday night.

Trump, 76, was banned from the social media platform after the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection.

On Friday, Musk posted a 24-hour Twitter poll asking users to decide if the controversial Trump, who recently announced a new run for the White House, should be reinstated on the embattled platform.

In the end, more than 15 million people voted, with those choosing to reinstate Trump taking 51.8% of the vote to 48.2% who said no.

“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk wrote just after 8 p.m.

The Latin phrase means “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

Just before he launched his Twitter poll concerning the fate of Trump’s presence on the platform, Musk announced the reinstatement of satirical news site the Babylon Bee, controversial author Jordan Peterson and firebrand comedian Kathy Griffin. 

Musk spent $44 billion to purchase Twitter, which has been in turmoil ever since his reign began on Nov. 3.

The equally embattled Trump announced his third White House bid earlier this week.

He immediately laid off thousands of workers, and hundreds more have quit in the weeks since.

By Thursday, so many employees had left the app it began to slow down, prompting fears it could shutter altogether.

The hashtags #RIPTwitter and #GoodbyeTwitter had begun to trend, but Twitter was still functioning as of Saturday, when Musk bragged at how popular the Trump poll was.  

“134M people have seen this poll,” he tweeted.
