Will Elon Musk’s quest to buy Twitter impact former President Donald Trump’s launch of his own social media company? Apparently not.
Trump says his own Truth Social app is still very much in the works and that means that Twitter is not part of his plans.
‘We’re doing a big platform right now,’ he said in an interview that was broadcast on Wednesday.
‘So probably wouldn’t have any interest. You know, Twitter has become very boring.’
Trump has yet to make regular use of his account on Truth Social, and in the meantime remains locked in legal battle with Twitter – as well as Facebook and Google – to restore his accounts.
Now, he says “Twitter lacks any appeal.”
‘They’ve gotten rid of a lot of their good voices on Twitter, a lot of conservative voices and it used to be a war on Twitter, but it was a very interesting war. “
On Thursday news emerged that Tesla founder Musk had offered to buy the social media company for $43 billion.
The founder of Twitter is complaining about the board of directors. Jack Dorsey says it’s “consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk also tweeted over the weekend, saying the board “collectively owns almost no shares.”
Taking Twitter private at $54.20 should be up to shareholders, not the board
