Republicans have criticized Twitter for banning former President Donald Trump and other notable conservatives.
Trump’s account, which has more than 88 million followers, has been his main communication tool during the presidency. He repeatedly used Twitter to claim his defeat in the November 2020 election was due to widespread voter fraud and he urged supporters to come to Washington on January 6, 2021 and march on US Capitol to protest the election results.
Days after the storm on Capitol Hill, Twitter said it had permanently suspended Trump’s account due to the risk of further inciting violence.
Political activists expect Trump to be able to restore his account after Musk took over Twitter.
Elon Musk bought 100% shares of Twitter for about $44 billion, about $54.20 per share, and all in cash.
The microblogging site has been evaluating Musk’s offer over the past few weeks. Musk has previously said that Twitter has “extraordinary potential” and he wants to unlock it all.
