Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Tuesday that he will lift the Twitter ban on former US President Donald Trump. Musk said this at the Financial Times Future of the Car conference. Elon Musk recently bought Twitter for $44 billion.
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 yet to respond to Musk’s remarks and there was no immediate comment from a Trump spokesperson. His Twitter account was suspended before the end of Trump’s term, then he had more than 88 million (88 million) followers.
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 House). Twitter cited “the risk of further inciting violence” in its decision.
But the decision to ban Trump from Twitter did not quell the voice of the former president, but raised his views on the political right. Musk called the ban “morally incorrect and downright stupid”.
Musk said that a permanent ban on accounts by Twitter should be in rare circumstances and such measures should be taken against accounts that are malicious or ‘automated bots’.
Although Trump has already said that he will not return to Twitter even if Musk buys the platform and reinstates his account. He said that “Musk is a good man, but he will not return to Twitter.
