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.

Trump’s ‘Truth Social’ Destined to Be a Huge Failure

When Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook last year, the former president vowed he would create an alternative social media network to rival them.

But two weeks after Truth Social launched, it doesn’t seem Twitter and Facebook have anything to worry about.

Truth Social has been beset with technical glitches that mean prospective users have to join a waiting list in order to join.”

Donald Trump is a pathological liar, according to the Washington Post he accumulated 30,573 lies during his presidency.

The liar-in-chief used social media, especially Twitter, to disseminate his lies and falsehoods and the social media giant frequently fact-checked his untruths before he was permanently banned for violating the company’s policy against glorification and incitement of violence in his tweets following the January 6, 2021 insurrection.  

Trump finally launched Truth Social, and truth be told it’s failed to take off, in fact it’s been an unmitigated disaster.

The Almighty must have sabotaged his social media network for having the temerity to call it “Truth Social” and for lying about his affinity for evangelicals.

Trump doesn’t seem to have much faith in his alternative to Twitter, he’s posted only once since it launched:

“Get Ready! Your favorite President will see you soon.”

Just another lie, the few who have managed to get on Truth Social haven’t seen him online.

Truth Social promises to be a cesspool of lies and conspiracy theories, considering there won’t be any moderators or fact-checkers. But at least it won’t be around for long, like most of Trump’s ventures it’s going to be a huge failure.
