Donald Trump may soon return to social media but on his own platform.
If they beat you and you can’t join them you can start your own thing that’s if you have the money and you have the time like Donald Trump. According to the former president’ advisor we may see Trump back on social media but on his own platform.
His advisor known as Jason Miller said the platform “will be the hottest ticket in social media” and would “completely redefine the game”. Mr Trump was suspended from Twitter and Facebook after January’s deadly riots at the US Capitol in Washington DC.The attack on 6 January by Trump supporters saw five people including a police officer killed, and shook the foundations of American democracy.
How did Trump use social media?
Mr Trump used Twitter as a way, for more than 10 years, to bypass the traditional media and speak directly to voters.The former president had nearly 90 million followers on the social platform.
Though Mr.Miller provides little details about the platform he said only that “everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does”. The adviser said Mr Trump had already had “high-powered meetings” with various teams regarding the venture at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“Numerous companies” had already approached the former president, Mr Miller said.
“This new platform is going to be big,” he added, predicting that Mr Trump would draw “tens of millions of people”.
Why was Trump banned in the first place?
Mr Trump was initially locked out of his Twitter account for 12 hours in January after he called the people who stormed the US Capitol “patriots”. Hundreds of his supporters entered the complex as the US Congress attempted to certify Joe Biden’s victory in last year’s presidential election.
Twitter warned then it would ban Mr Trump “permanently” if he breached the platform’s rules again. After being allowed back on Twitter, Mr Trump posted two tweets that the company cited as the final straws. The social media company said both of these tweets were “in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy”.
Mr Trump’s accounts were also suspended on Facebook, popular gaming platform Twitch and multimedia messaging app Snapchat.
