Elon Musk: In a formal statement, former US president Donald Trump congratulates Elon Musk on the acquisition of Twitter and criticises the “woke agenda” of the previous management. “We congratulate Elon Musk on his acquisition of Twitter. Change, according to many, was necessary since the previous administration was overly focused on the woke agenda. My account will reportedly be operational again on Monday, but we’ll see. I’m glad I can interact with a company founded by African Americans! “, reads Donald Trump’s statement.
Following the Capitol Hill riots, Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter.
Even though the former US president has declared he won’t return to the platform, Elon Musk promised before the buyout that he would lift the restriction on Donald Trump. Instead, he introduced Truth Social, his own social networking application.
Elon Musk reportedly removed key Twitter executives, including the company’s CEO Parag Agrawal, chief financial officer Ned Segal, and head of law and policy Vijaya Gadde, as soon as the company was acquired, according to a Reuters story. The main officer who decided to permanently bar former US president Donald Trump was Hyderabad-born Vijaya Gadde.
Twitter’s top executives fired
According to a Reuters report, Twitter’s top executives Agrawal and Segal were there when the agreement was signed, and both were led away. Elon Musk hopes to alter Twitter with the acquisition by easing the restrictions on content moderation, improving algorithm transparency, encouraging subscription businesses, and terminating staff.
