The new owner and CEO of Twitter recently went into detail about deplatforming, free speech, and centrism on his social media account. Musk replied to a user who pointed out that former President Trump hadn’t used his Twitter account since it was restored. The billionaire CEO noted he was fine with Trump not tweeting, declaring it was simply important for Twitter to correct a mistake it made in the past.
I’m fine with Trump not tweeting. The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service.
Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America.
