The board said last month that it had received 9,000+ public responses regarding Trump’s indefinite suspension from Facebook and Instagram.
Trump was suspended “indefinitely”
; from Facebook and Instagram on January 7, a day after his supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the election result in 2020. Twitter and YouTube took similar steps, citing an ongoing risk of violence and incentive.
“We believe that the risk of letting the President continue to use our service during this period is simply too great,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote at the time.
Later that month, Facebook asked the Board of Supervisors for a decision on whether Trump’s suspension should stand, saying the significance of the case warranted its independent review.
