My cmnt: There’s so many important things happening in this article.
My cmnt: First, banning a sitting President of the United States from using your monopoly communication platform was and is so outrageous it defies description. It is comparable to a phone carrier banning someone from ever making a phone call or a TV network banning a person from ever appearing on that network. This is Leftwing fascism (i.e., a proper description of communism) with a Stalin, Mussolini, Castro, Hitler and Mao all sewn together into some kind of grotesque, all-controlling monster by these social media masters-of-the-universe dictators who own and run Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
My cmnt: Second, I’m old enough to remember when democrats hated Big Business, the FBI and War. But what we have seen is that democrats actually love these things WHEN they are in control of them. Hypocrites all. It remains to be seen if Musk will be sabotaged by the leftwing employees of Twitter, Facebook, Google and more to destroy the platform now that it can be used for freedom and the truth.
Former President Donald Trump said he won’t be returning to Twitter even after Elon Musk bought the platform in an effort to restore free speech, according to Fox News.
Trump exclusively told Fox News he would remain off Twitter and stick to his own social media platform TRUTH Social.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump reportedly said. “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.”
“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter,” Trump told Fox News. “Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can.”
“The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter.”
Trump said he plans on “TRUTHing” over the next few days, according to Fox News. (RELATED: Shaun King: Elon Musk Buying Twitter Is Racist)
Twitter permanently banned Trump after he was initially temporarily suspended following a series of tweets that Twitter claimed incited or justified the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot. Trump was forced to delete three offending tweets and serve a 12-hour suspension before the company made the permanent decision “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Twitter agreed Monday to sell the platform to Musk following negotiations. Musk made his “best and final” offer to purchase the company for $43.4 billion, citing free speech as his reason.
Twitter’s board attempted to repel the offer, deploying a “poison pill” defense strategy which would allow shareholders to purchase additional shares at a discounted rate to prevent Musk from acquiring a larger stake of the company. Musk, however, successfully secured financing for the takeover and released details of his plan Thursday, prompting the board to reconsider his offer.
