For the first time since announcing the plan to take over Twitter, Elon Musk confronted the proverbial elephant in the room. “What about Donald Trump ”, we asked ourselves a few weeks ago. Now we have the answer: Elon Musk he said he was willing to reinstate his account by the lifetime ban against the former US president.
He said so in an interview with the Financial Times. “I don’t have Twitter yet, so I can’t give you a definite answer,” said the Tesla CEO. “But I think I want to suspend the lifetime ban against Trump.”
Musk explained that he had discussed it extensively with Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and former CEO of the social network. «We have the same opinion, we believe that the permanent suspensions they should be very rare, reserved for accounts that are clearly fraudulent or that are bots,” he explained. “I believe that ban Donald Trump it was a mistake, with him Twitter has alienated a large part of the country and this certainly has not stopped Trump from having a vote ».
And then, Musk continues, there is the risk of Internet balkanization in dozens of gated communities. “Now comes Truth Social, frankly it’s a worst case scenario, it’s better to have one square where everyone can discuss”.
Elon Musk has revealed a plan to take over Twitter. The proposal has already been approved by the Board of Directors of the company and must then be submitted to the shareholders’ vote. The operation will also be funded by Larry Ellison, co-founder of Oracle and Binance, the cryptocurrency giant.
