A recent post from Donald Trump’s Twitter account appreciating Elon Musk has stirred up a lot of online discussions.
The conclusion of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter following months of legal disputes has sparked a lot of rumours about the billionaire unbanning former President Donald Trump.
In a mission to “help humanity”, Elon Musk has promised to restore free speech while preventing the platform from being a “hellscape”.
Following the social media platform’s acquisition, Elon Musk fired Twitter’s chief executive officer, Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal, and director of legal affairs and policy Vijaya Gadde.
The dismissal happened after making a dramatic entrance inside the Twitter headquarters with a sink. It has been reported that the trio which backed the ban on Donald Trump on Twitter have been on Musk’s black book due to this.
