The former president, Donald Trump has made a comeback to the social networking platform X, formerly known as Twitter, on Thursday, with a post that included a photo of his booking photo from the Fulton County Jail in Georgia earlier in the day.

With his message for funds, Trump regained direct access to the public on the website that had previously blocked him after his supporters’ attack on Congress on January 6, 2021.

The San Francisco-based app changed its stance on Nov. 19 under the leadership of billionaire Elon Musk, a self-described “free speech absolutist” who purchased Twitter on Oct. 2.

Trump, who had more than 88 million followers before Twitter banned him, uploaded a picture of the mug shot on Thursday with the words: “ELECTION INTERFERENCE! NEVER SURRENDER!” In the first 50 minutes after being online, the post received more than 14 million views.

In January 2021, Twitter permanently disabled Trump’s account due to the danger of further inciting violence in the wake of the assault on the U.S. Capitol.

He shared other conspiracy theories on Twitter and other social media sites, claiming that his loss in the 2020 election was the result of massive voter fraud.
