Let us tell you that Musk advocated ‘free speech’ only after buying Twitter. He stated that “Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters important to the future of humanity are debated. I am opening up algorithms to increase trust, by augmenting the product with new features.” I want to make Twitter better than ever by creating sources, defeating spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”

However, Twitter has not yet responded to Musk’s comment. Trump had over 88 million (88 million) followers when his Twitter account was suspended before the end of his term. The action was taken following years of debate about how social media companies should moderate the accounts of powerful global leaders.

Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter shortly after the January 6 riots at the US Capitol (Parliament Building). Twitter cited “the risk of further inciting violence” in its decision. But Musk called the ban “morally wrong and stupid”.

However, Trump has already said he will not return to Twitter even if Musk buys the platform and restores his account. He said he would use his own social media app called Truth Social, which launched on the Apple App Store in late February.
