Elon Musk: ‘Trump’s Truth Social is a Terrible Name, should be Called Trumpet Instead’

“Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech. Should be called Trumpet instead!”

Elon Musk

It’s widely assumed that Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, will reinstate Donald Trump’s account. Musk considers himself a champion of free speech, and he would consider it a feather in his cap if he persuaded the inciter-in-chief to return to the Twitterverse.

In January of last year, Twitter banned Trump for violating Twitter rules by inciting the insurrection. Musk thinks Trump’s banishment from Twitter is the only reason Truth Social exists, and that he will be able to persuade the blowhard to leave his floundering social media platform and return to Twitter where he will now be able to tweet without any restrictions.

Musk has solid marketing instincts and he’s correct that “Truth Social” is a terrible name. It’s difficult to take Truth Social seriously when it was founded by a pathological liar wouldn’t know the truth if it bit his fat ass.

Musk is also spot on that Trump’s social media site should be called Trumpet instead. The twice-impeached former president likes to toot his own horn; he’s an alpha male constantly trumpeting his virtues. Naturally his site should be called “Trumpet” and posts on his site should be called “trumpets.”

But Musk is wrong that Twitter censors free speech, not allowing conspiracy theories, libelous statements, and the Big Lie is not censorship, it’s called due diligence.

I predict that Trump will return to Twitter, but I can’t predict if the world’s favorite microblogging site will survive Musk and Trump.

Now That Elon Musk Has Bought Twitter I Predict Donald Trump Will Start Twitting Again

“Former President Donald Trump told Fox News Monday that he doesn’t plan to return to Twitter even though multibillionaire Elon Musk is buying the company for $44 billion.

He plans to stick with his own problem-plagued social media company Truth Social, which he has used once before its launch in February when he messaged: ‘Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon.’”

Since Donald Trump was permanently banned from his Twitter, his favorite social media site, he has failed to engage with GETTR, Gab, Parler and other social media platforms that were created as conservative alternatives to the Twitters, Facebooks and YouTubes of the world.

Trump is even ignoring his own social media company Truth Social, evidently, he doesn’t want to be identified with such an unmitigated disaster.

Trump claims that he doesn’t plan to return to Twitter if Elon Musk, who styles himself as a free speech champion, allows him to return.

As the new CEO of Twitter Musk will take a laissez-faire approach, and allow false conspiracy theories, the Big Lie and all sorts of right-wing nonsense to fester on his site.

Trump will be unable to resist returning to the new Twitter, I expect to see his nasty tweets before too long.
