‘Truth Social’ can make Donald Trump’s comeback on Twitter difficult
According to a new filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), when Trump posts anything on ‘Truth Social’, he cannot repost it to any other social network for six hours. These restrictions are likely intended to drive traffic to ‘Truth Social’
The filing said that Trump “may make a post from a personal account related to political messaging, political fundraising or get-out-the-vote efforts on any social media site at any time. But he is “generally obligated” to use ‘Truth Social’.
Trump will own 46.8 percent of the company’s voting power and 73.3 million shares of the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) once it merges with ‘Digital World Acquisition Corp‘.
At the time when Trump was banned from Twitter in January last year for inciting violence at the US Capitol Hill, he had nearly 89 million followers on the platform. On ‘Truth Social’, he currently has close to 3 million followers.
Musk had earlier said that he would reverse the Twitter ban on Trump once he takes over the micro-blogging platform. Earlier, last week, Musk reiterated that the incumbent CEO of Twitter, Parag Agrawal should restore Trump’s account.
Musk had said, “Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter.”
Trump, however, decided not to join the micro-blogging site, saying “Twitter has become very boring“.
