Former President Donald Trump has praised Elon Musk
Washington. Former US President Donald Trump has given a big statement regarding his return to Twitter. Trump said on Saturday that he had no interest in returning to Twitter. Let us tell you that Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, had conducted a survey regarding the return of former US President Donald Trump to Twitter. In this survey, 51.8% people voted in favor of restoring Trump’s account. More than 15 million people participated in the voting. After this, Musk made another tweet, in which he wrote that ‘people have given opinion’. Now again Trump’s Twitter account will be restored.
Significantly, Trump was accused of inciting riots in ‘Capital Hill’ after the presidential election results, after which his Twitter account was suspended on January 8, 2021. Before Trump’s account was suspended, he had 88 million followers. After the restoration of Trump’s Twitter account, the work of collecting his followers has also been started. However, even after the Twitter account was restored, Trump has not expressed any happiness.
When asked by a panel at the annual leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition about a return to Twitter, former President Trump said that ‘I don’t see any reason to return’. He said he would stick to Truth Social, an app developed by his Trump Media and Technology Group startup. He said that it is better than Twitter.
Musk first announced in May
During a launch program for the 2024 elections on Tuesday, Trump praised Elon Musk and said that he always liked him. Regarding Twitter, Trump said that there is a big problem of fake accounts in Twitter. Let us tell you that Elon Musk said for the first time in May that he had decided to lift Twitter’s ban on Trump, after which many Twitter advertisers reacted to it.
However, while assuring advertisers, Musk also said that Twitter will not reinstate any banned user unless there is a clear process for doing so. However, Musk this week restored the Twitter account of comedian Kathy Griffin, who was banned for changing her profile name to Elon Musk.
Trump has 4.57 million followers on Truth Social
After the restoration of Trump’s account on Twitter, now the discussion about his return is in full swing. If Trump returns to Twitter, the move would raise questions about his commitment to Truth Social, which launched on Apple’s App Store in February and Google’s Play Store in October. Let us tell you that Trump has about 45.7 lakh followers on Truth Social. Now it will be a matter to be seen what decision Trump takes regarding his return to Twitter?
