New owner Elon Musk says incitement to violence will continue to be prohibited on Twitter but suspending former president Donald Trump’s account was wrong.
Trump Twitter ban was grave mistake: Musk
Twitter owner Elon Musk says the platform’s ban on then President Donald Trump after his supporters attacked the United States Capitol was a “grave mistake” that had to be corrected.
However, Musk said incitement to violence would continue to be prohibited on Twitter.
“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,” Musk said in a tweet.
“Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America.”
