The former president of the US, Donald Trump said that he has no intentions of returning to Twitter, even if his account is restored, following the event of Elon Musk buying Twitter. He focuses to stays on his own, problematic platform – Truth Social.
“I am not going on Twitter. I am going to stay on Truth. I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”, Trump said.
Trump used Twitter to gain media attention and to speak directly to his followers. All of this ended on January 9, as Twitter barred Trump, owing to the “risk of further incitement of violence.”. He had 89Million followers at that time.
Musk, the world’s wealthiest person and a self-described free-speech absolutist, had said he wanted to buy and privatize Twitter because he believed it wasn’t living up to its potential as a free speech platform.
It raised questions about whether he might reinstate Trump’s account as the former president lays the groundwork for another White House run in 2024.
Trump then turned his attention towards his own social media – Truth Social. He urges his followers to use Truth during his rallies.
“Truth Social will be a voice for me, And that’s something nobody else can get. Go out and sign up now, Have a lot of fun.”, Trump said.
