Founder, CEO and chief engineer of SpaceX Elon Musk took to his Twitter account to address users that had questions in relation to Trump's suspension from the platform.
The business mogul, who currently owns the social media medium, had this to say:
"If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if Trump is coming back on this platform, Twitter would be minting money!"
Elon Musk, in his effort to buy Twitter, signalled that under his ownership, the company would allow all speech.
“By ‘free speech,’ I simply mean that which matches the law,” he tweeted.
Donald Trump was banned from Twitter about 1 year ago citing “the risk of further incitement of violence.”
Twitter issued a statement to its consumers, explaining the logic behind this ban.
"After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter's official "Safety" account tweeted.
Almost immediately, the account that Trump had used for years to convey his every thought, to denounce his enemies and praise his friends, to convey uncountable false statements and official White House announcements, simply disappeared.
It was suddenly impossible to see his previous tweets, or even to see his reaction to Twitter's decision. Instead, his empty account had been marked: "Account suspended."
Trump's attempts to tweet from associated accounts also were blocked. At one point, he was tweeting from his campaign account, but that was promptly suspended.
Whereas many agreed with this move, some felt as though this was an infringement on the freedom of speech and it explains why a good number of Twitter users are eager to see what the Elon's next move will be.
