Trump Could Lose Millions If He Returns to Twitter
(ConservativeInsider.org) – A few days after January 6, 2021, Twitter banned President Donald Trump from the platform. However, after a two-year hiatus — and billionaire Elon Musk’s takeover of the social media site — the 45th president’s Twitter account is back online, although no new tweets have appeared at the time of writing. One thing that could be driving his continued absence is the fact millions of dollars are at stake if Trump chooses to tweet.
After Musk held a Twitter poll asking users if they wanted Trump back on the platform, he reactivated the account.

Trump has been using his own site, Truth Social, to broadcast his thoughts and messages to his 4.3 million followers. The site, which became active earlier this year, is trying to merge with Digital World Acquisition Corp. to increase funding and get listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
However, much of Truth Social’s value comes from the fact it is the only spot the former president shares his thoughts. So, if he begins posting on Twitter again, where he has 86.7 million followers, that could devalue his own site. The merger also has intense legal requirements that may activate should he choose to tweet again.
For now, though, Trump has indicated he will be “staying” at his “very, very powerful, very, very strong” Truth Social.
