Elon Musk is ready to return Donald Trump on Twitter. If its acquisition of the social network it would change the rules and reopen the doors to the former American president expelled from the platform in January 2021.
According to what Elon Musk said, at an event in the Financial Times, permanent bans should be “extremely rare” and turning Donald Trump away would have been a mistake. The announcement, with the managing director of Tesla and SpaceX driving, would be revoked.
Musk has submitted an offer to buy the platform for 44 billion dollars and aims to close the operation in 2 or 3 months. He is planning major changes in the management of the social network. “Twitter shouldn’t impose permanent bans” for the millionaire. Individual posts may be hidden and people may be suspended only temporarily if they say something that is “illegal or destructive to the world”.
Trump was banned from Twitter following his messages allegedly inciting violence and provoking the assault of his supporters on the Capitol on January 6, 2021. For Musk, the removal of Trump “did not silence his voice, it amplified it in the right wing. For this he was morally wrong and completely stupid ».
Donald Trump has repeatedly said that he does not want to return to Twitter considering the boring social network. The self-produced platform is better for him Truth, not particularly successful. However, it is difficult to think that he can give up a megaphone like the one he had in the years of the presidency and in those that brought him to the White House, perhaps even to try the race again.
When the offer was made official, Musk reiterated that «the freedom of word it is the foundation of a democracy that works and Twitter is the square of the digital city where vital issues for the future of humanity are debated ”. Obviously in Elon Musk’s thoughts is innovation: “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enriching the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating spam bots and authenticating all human beings.”
