Ex president United States of America, Donald Trumpthe prestige of using Twitter again even though the platform was bought by a billionaire Elon Musk.
Twitter is still blocking Trump’s Twitter account because it is considered to often spread hoaxes and make noise in the US.
Later, the Republican politician insisted on using his website, Truth Social.
“I don’t use Twitter, I’ll still use Truth [Social],” Trump was quoted as saying AFP from Fox News.
Since Truth Social was launched in February, Trump has only made an upload.
Trump also did not make cynical comments after the tech billionaire’s Twitter.
Elon Musk, he said, is a good person who will improve the services of this social media platform. However, Trump admits that his social media is considered better.
More than one million users downloaded the app after launch, but that figure continues to shrink amid technical glitches and long waiting times to access accounts.
“We received millions of people, and what we found was the response on Truth was much better than on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we’re doing everything we can,” he said.
Last year, Twitter blocked Trump for avoiding the risk of further incitement to violence following the January 2021 attacks on Washington’s Capitol Building.
Twitter then received a negative response from conservatives. They considered it biased and violated the right to free speech.
Elon Musk officially bought Twitter for $44 billion on Monday (25/4). In his post-deal statement, he stressed that “freedom of speech is absolute.”
Elon Musk is also expected to relax content rules. Some observers think he can recover the accounts of Trump and allies who have violated regulations.
When talking to Fox News, Trump may not have been informed that Twitter has been bought by Musk. It is said that he will return to using this platform.
“Any negotiations to sell Twitter to Musk must include clear and enforceable mechanisms, and maintain existing community standards, including the removal of those who violate those standards,” Twitter group president Angelo Carusone said in a statement.
