Trump says he has no plans to rejoin Twitter after Elon Musk deal


Former President Donald Trump said on Monday that he has no intention of rejoining Twitter even if his account is reinstated following Elon Musk’s agreement, who brought the social media giant for roughly 44 billion.

Trump said that he will instead focus on his own platform, ‘Truth Social’, which has been mired in problems since its launch earlier this year. 

“I am not going on Twitter. I am going to stay on Truth,” Trump said.

It is to be mentioned that Trump was barred from major social media platforms after the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection, with Twitter citing the “risk of further incitement of violence”.

The decision denied him to generate media attention and speak directly to his followers, which had been integral to his political rise. At the time, the former president had roughly 89 million followers on Twitter alone.

Elon 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 has continued to spread lies about his 2020 election defeat in speeches and statements since leaving office, and it is unclear how Musk would approach those statements if Trump were ever to return to the site.

In recent weeks, Musk has voiced a number of proposed changes for the company, including relaxing its content restrictions, and said he would be “very reluctant” to delete content and cautious of permanent bans.

It is to be mentioned that after being kicked off social media platforms, Trump launched his own social media app and sued Twitter, Facebook and Google’s YouTube, claiming he and other conservatives had been wrongfully censored, even though posts by conservative commentators are routinely the most widely shared.

On Monday, he said he welcomed Musk’s purchase and he didn’t see Twitter as his own product’s competition. “Truth Social will be a voice for me,” he said. “And that’s something nobody else can get.”
