  • Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, announced Wednesday that former President Trump will be allowed back on those two platforms.
  • Meta spokesman Nick Clegg said Trump’s two-year suspension had ended, and his accounts will be added back in the coming weeks.
  • “Social media is rooted in the belief that open debate and the free flow of ideas are important values,” Clegg wrote in a statement. “As a general rule, we don’t want to get in the way of open, public and democratic debate on Meta’s platforms – especially in the context of elections in democratic societies like the United States.”
