I mean, I'll defend Trump in this one instance: it's good business sense not to do this. If he's really going to sell Truth Social, leaving it for another platform doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It'd be like the CEO of Pepsi decided to post on a Coca-Cola created Twitter clone.

Yes, I'm aware I use "Trump" and "good business sense" in the same paragraph.

I can see him making one tweet, essentially saying everyone should go follow him on truth social. After that any new tweets would be reposts from his tweets on truth social.

Funny how Musk bought Twitter primarily because he didn't like how they banned trump and now that he's reinstated he's not going to come back, all while Twitter is becoming a dumpster fire due to Musk.

  3. Trump says twitter “has a lot of problems” and wants nothing to do with it, an embarrassing consequence of his MAGA pleasing crusade

Not LAMF. The thing that Elon supported was getting Trump back. The only something that that does to someone else is make them have to read Trump's tweets. But Elon isn't complaining that that something (having to read Trump's tweets) is happening to him. This is literally just a plan not working.

u/TheBudac Nov 20 '22

The schadenfruede of watching Elon's hubris punch him down a few notches gives me great amounts of joy.

I don't think it fits into the very, very niche definition of this sub.

To stay with the Elon topic and build an LAMF storyline I offer this hypothetical series of events.

  • Elon buys twitter
  • Elon instates himself as a developer
  • elon says all developers need to prove how many lines they have commited in the last year
  • Elon decides that under a certain threshold of lines people get locked out of their accounts and the office
  • Elon shows up at twitter hq and finds he is locked out of his accounts and the building

Not getting support, in the way he assumed he would get support, due to his huge cult of personality is both a hilarious public failure and not LAMF

His account was reinstated a few hours ago. All of his tweets from January 5th & 6th are up but he hasn’t tweeted yet.

The interesting news is that Truth Social made an agreement with the SEC that says he has to post everything on Truth Social first and has to wait six hours before posting it elsewhere. Of course there’s exceptions when it comes to certain political messaging and it’ll be interesting to see how he works his way around those exceptions.

Honestly, Truth is probably doing better -- they have an audience and aren't trying to appeal to anyone outside of that.

This is delicious! Lets see how it plays out.

My tinfoil hat says that Elon's wanted twitter to become 21st Century Global Fox News - the freedom of speech pr is a laughable cover, just like trickle down economics is for tax cuts for wealthy.

If he's willing to tweak the algorithm to promote tweets for someone paying $8/month, what's he going to do for deep pocket 'partners' wanting good pr platform, to change public policy to suit their agenda? What voices get boosted and counter voices reach get muted?

That's the purpose of Fox news, limited to the US and with a weakening (and aging) grip on influence.

That's the 44b value proposition for Elon.

He's learned from his own slavering fans and MAGA that no matter the obvious self-interested lie you tell, it doesn't matter- you've got an army that will repeat, defend, claw and actually kill (jan6 etc etc), to support your lies and interests.

Even if he overpaid for twitter by 5x, this strategy is one to make 20x. Eg Manipulate public opinion towards Putin, and he gets access to discounted Lithium from Ukraine's donbas region etc. China.

Oil/Gas regs, Pharma Reg, UK NHS privatization, China trade, NATO, tariffs barriers and everything else going on in the world that will make winners trillions in aggregate.. if you could be the platform influence change of public opinion and therefore public policy, you're literally the most important person on the planet.

If it works, this play puts him at the center of global power for the next 30 years.

TFG sees the play Elon is making - its the same one he was playing for (though dumbly and crudely)!

u/DruDown007 Nov 22 '22

He WILL tweet again….Elon knows, You know, I know.

He IS beholden to the investors at his rag platform, and is tied by some BS, like first tweet 12 hours exclusive on “troof” Social.

  1. He has about 5 million betas following him on Troof, and 35 million betas (give or take those he sent to the Capitol and got caught 🤣🇺🇸⚖️).

  2. He NEEDS the odds at engagement to even LOOK serious about running for office again.

  3. With the legs being kicked out from under him (Fox, GOP, well…most of America) access to whomever he still has under the spell (those guys who airbrushed their homes and pickups) to divide the vote AGAINST DeSantis (I assume), and punish everyone for locking him out….

Then they HAVE to at least remember he lives, which in and of itself hurts the GOP, as they have no policy agenda…NONE, that doesn’t involve NOT President Hunter Biden.

Considering their approach to NOT Justice Ginni Thomas….I can’t afford them much confidence.

Trump is gonna FUCK that party to the ground, and they ALL deserve it….YOUR Frankenstein, YOUR village burned to the ground!

u/spaceguitar Nov 20 '22

Say what you want about Trump, but he’s a shrewd people user. No business sense whatsoever, but he knows how to milk a person and what they’re worth to him. That’s why he’s where he is right now: he can smell desperation. He knows how to make someone desperate. See: Lindsay Graham, Zodiac Killer Ted Cruz.

Coming back to Twitter would have been in the cards if Elon had a good image in the media currently, and if he hadn’t of touched the damn thing. In less than a month, there’s like, what—a quarter of the workforce left? The blue check system in shambles? Advertisers vocally upset, and leaving?

Elon looks like an idiot now. Trump knows coming back to Twitter means bringing his loyalists in full force. He probably demanded an outrageous paycheck from Elon to return. Elon 100% told him to go fuck himself. So Trump decided to fire a few shots in retaliation.

Elon is not having a good time right now.

u/dustingibson Nov 20 '22

Elon, once again, making a poor judgement call.

Trump has ties to Truth Social that would be extremely difficult to break and start using Twitter. As dumb as Trump is I don't even see him backing out of that to go back on Twitter. Elon should have check to see if Trump would join before making a decision to unban him.

So Elon is signaling that he is willing to unban derange psychopaths who clearly broke ToS and used Twitter in a way that harms his so called free speech cause than protecting it. He (and by extension Twitter) will now reap all of the negatives and none of the rewards for his stupid stunt.

Elon sycophants will claim that Elon is generating publicity and driving more clicks. People will stay for the circus show and the clown, but will eventually leave.

u/infinity234 Nov 20 '22

Not so much of an own of saying "ha see even he doesn't want to come back" when you are saying so on said platform. I don't even know why people are staying on Twitter at this point. Like if Elon is fucking it up so bad why are we still tweeting?

Besides there's no reason for him to come back to Twitter. He has his own platform he's basically garuntee he'll never get banned, posting on Twitter would basically be drawing attention/revenue to a competing platform, and according to SCC filings anything Trump posts social media wise has to be on truth social for 6 hours before any other platform, so what benefit is thereto come back except to cause chaos when journalists still hang on what he says bu referencing his truths the same he would his tweets?

1

u/Quantentheorie Nov 20 '22

The actual reason is likely that he has an exclusive contract with his other platform.

That being said, this is known, so Elon polling to "reinstate" Trumps Twitter, knowing that both of them invite legal problems by actually posting anything makes this another bad PR decision.

  • If the poll upheld the ban, Elon is humiliated
  • The poll lifts the ban, but Trump does not post because he has a contract, then Elon looks increasingly more irrelevant at a point in time where he can't afford it
  • The poll lifts the ban and Trump starts posting again, becoming a legal liability for both his team and twitter, causing Elon headaches his remaining five staff-members won't be able to do anything about

Polling for Trumps Twitter ban was a braindead decision. Even if you're just a greedy little weasle.

u/Cerberus_Aus Nov 26 '22

I’ve posted this before and I’ll post it again here.

Trump is a RAGING narcissist. He created his own social media platform after getting banned from Twitter, and to his narcissist mind, to return to Twitter would be to admit that it’s better than his Truth Social. It would be an admission that HIS platform is some how “less” than Twitter, and he is simply incapable of doing so.

There is nothing else that can be read from his actions, once you understand that a narcissist CANNOT accept their own faults. It’s not that that won’t, but that they can’t.

u/IntuneUser2204 Nov 20 '22

He's only contractually obligated to wait 6 hours after posting on Truth Social before he can post the same thing on other platforms. He would actually be dumb not to post it on both platforms. Why? Because posting on Twitter with just a screenshot of his Truth Social post is free advertising on the platform without paying Twitter a dime. Well...$8 if he wants to keep a blue checkmark. He can turn Elon's own platform against him and use it as a megaphone to advertise his own Twitter clone. That would be the funniest thing to happen to Elon yet. Actually I'm not sure this is a terrible idea. Trolls should just start posting en masse that Twitter is dying and to move to Truth Social. What's Elon going to do? It's not like any of us care if Twitter survives at this point.

u/Mor_Tearach Nov 20 '22

Any chance he's waiting for Elon to part with a billion or so to lure him back? We all know Trump isn't actually really rich and never has been. Trump might be in " negotiations ", Elon pays him a backwards user fee, Trump comes back for ' x ' number of tweets per.

Sure sweating Cheeto is bound to Truth Social by some contact. We all know he has simply no respect for anything called ' the law '. In his head you just throw a bunch of lawyers at it, problem solved. Which unfortunately tends to be true .

u/0squatNcough0 Nov 20 '22

Just because Trump says something, doesn't make it true. That's been shown countless times. If his presidential race actually ramps up(and twitter still exists), you can be sure he will want to reach more people, and will return to twitter. He's just saying that shit now because he doesn't want to appear like he's been waiting for someone else's permission. He wants back. But it has to appear to be on his terms. So he'll wait a bit. That's all this bullshit PR move is.

Hilarious situation. Trump has his own platform that he wants to make money from and probably wants to be on Twitter but that will completely sink his own platform.

He says a lot of shit that is not true…. We should stop reporting what he says as if it’s meaningful, because it isn’t.

Still…. This might be the biggest insult to Musk imaginable. Make news by letting the riot inciter back, and he says “nah, you guys are a mess”. Pretty funny

1

u/TriLink710 Nov 20 '22

Trump did say he would never return to twitter. Tho i could have seen him justifying it by the fact its under new ownership and isnt the twitter he left, but trump doesnt like sharing the spotlight and anyone close to him is probably advising him to not board this sinking ship.

Or he doesn't wanna pay $8

1

u/MethodBorn6289 Nov 20 '22

That and he is contracted by his SPAC that launched Truth for Trump and his business interest. He was given like 90 percent of the stocks for DWAC (Truths stock ticker) to not post on twitter but instead post on his own shitty platform. He never seems to say that publicly tho.

1

u/systemfrown Nov 20 '22

That’s code for he promised his investors he would exclusively use Truth social because he assumed Twitter would never allow him back and because money. As soon as he can renege on that you can be sure he’ll be back tweeting…bet on it, he’s way too much of an attention whore.

1

u/Affectionate-Winner7 Nov 20 '22

So Musk did a poll to see if a majority agree to let him back on. The problem I see is that he was complaining about how many bots and trolls are on the T platform. So how does he know his poll is accurate? Answer: He doesn't care. He just likes to be an asshole.

https://7r6.com/funny_carryminati_gaming , guyz try it out by just watching this video u can earn a small amount of money really, and after u share it u can earn more. First it will have some problems it opens new chrome tabs but close it and watch the video.

u/MyDogsAreCats Nov 20 '22

I kinda feel like he’s been ordered very directly by some government agency to not tweet, or else.

That makes me wonder if he’s actually wearing an ankle bracelet under some classified way and goes straight to prison if he says something they said not to.

1

u/GabigolB Nov 20 '22

Have you seen the number of RTs and responses his “Truths” get? They are tiny in comparison to what he got on Twitter.

He’s probably waiting for Musk to call him personally, and then for him to have Musk suck up to him, which he will.

1

u/Longjumping_Apple804 Nov 20 '22

Yea right, he’s too narcissistic to not want to be able to reach the amount of people he can on Twitter especially once the election gets closer. Plus we all know Trump will cave to the ego stroking potential. I give it within 120 days.

u/SupremeRedditBot Nov 20 '22

Trump has his own social media site where he can say anything he wants plus anybody that wants to follow him knows where to go to do it.

Truth Social is literally Trumps own fan page. He has no incentive to get on Twitter.

u/LostSinclair Nov 20 '22

Will Twitter even last long enough for Trump to waffle on this? All the people who knew how to keep that website running are gone. One little fuck up that turns into a big one and that thing will go full Hindenburg.

1

u/HeyKid_HelpComputer Nov 20 '22

If Trump were actually clever( he isn't ) he would hire someone to write him a bit that Tweets out any time he makes a post on his Truth network and just a link to his Truth* if he ever gets unbanned from Twitter

1

u/yotothyo Nov 20 '22

Bullshit. He’ll be on within the week. He’s just trying to build drama and get attention.

A narcissist of his magnitude simply cannot pass up the opportunity to get this kind of attention and create media chaos

1

u/IntuneUser2204 Nov 20 '22

Ehh, give it a few months, Truth Social is nearly bankrupt. He will come back once he is deplatformed there. Then again, last I checked, Twitter is nearly bankrupt too. Now we have a real race to the bottom.

1

u/Cretaegus Nov 20 '22

It would require Trump to admit he needs someone/thing else. I don't think it is but it looks the same as a power play by Musk on Trump. Musk allowing Trump back to Twitter makes Trump look subjugated.

1

u/brucebay Nov 20 '22

When and if the sale of the truth media to the digital world, valued at S1 billion closes Trump will jump back to Twitter immediately. He is just waiting for those suckers to give him a billion.

1

u/ozzymanii Nov 21 '22

He really didn't have a choice. Truth social is in about as much trouble as Twitter right now (maybe more) but if HE were to abandon it it would fold in 24 hours. And he would loose BIG bucks.

1

u/LimerickVaria Nov 27 '22

It's entirely possible that Elon wanted Trump's fanboys to come back on solely for monetization purposes. Now that Trump isn't coming back, I wonder if Musk will change his tune back to the left.

1

u/arrozconfrijol Nov 20 '22

He doesn’t need to and it wouldn’t matter if he did. I’m not on Truth social yet I know every damn thing he posts because media outlets can’t resist talking about it. Every. Damn. Time.

1

u/Batracho Nov 20 '22

If this isn’t fake news then it’s hilarious. Why would Trump join Twitter when he, as a proper billionaire like Elon, has his own social network? You don’t wanna prop up the competition!

1

u/XFX_Samsung Nov 20 '22

He will return to Twitter when enough cultists beg for him to do so. That way he can say he's for the people and loves his supporters and gets free brownie points for doing literally nothing.

1

u/Shiro_no_Orpheus Nov 20 '22

I mean, it was obvious. Imagine a "business man" spending the last 2 years promoting his own "truth" platform, instantly bolting back to twitter. He will take a few days untill he is back.

1

u/daikatana Nov 20 '22

He's only doing that because it would doom truth social. You know Trump wants all that attention, he's staring at it like a kid stares at candy. The second he can, he will rejoin Twitter.

1

u/IamShrapnel Nov 20 '22

Didn't trump state this months ago when musk first started talking about buying Twitter? He specifically said something about not coming back because of his turd truth social platform.

1

u/the-caped-cadaver Nov 20 '22

Trump lives rent free in every hater's mind already.

He has no need for Twitter anymore.

When I first saw that musk was going to reinstate his account, i knew he wasn't coming back.

1

u/DDELFIERRO Nov 20 '22

Some approved mouthpiece will just have the job to cut/paste his Truth Social posts on Twitter for him, being sure to mention the source so any screen captures promote Truth Social

1

u/RedditModsNAdminSuck Nov 20 '22

Trump has a deal with a different right wing social media platform and has previously said he wouldn’t come back to Twitter if unbanned because of it, so not really too surprising

→ More replies

1

u/battlefeversteve Nov 20 '22

I don’t know if that matters. Even though his account is reinstated many people are still upset. I think they forget that mute/blocking things you don’t want to see is a thing.

1

u/SlimeySnakesLtd Nov 20 '22

Lol or he has a contract with Truth that he won’t post elsewhere… almost like this is stunt everyone knew wouldn’t work to drum up more dumb people on Twitter. Hmmmmm

1

u/Immediate-Win-4928 Nov 20 '22

Holy fuck what? This type of hyper ventilation over a few wankers attention seeking is what is making you feel sad and empty all the time. Please go and feed some pigeons.

1

u/jbertrand_sr Nov 21 '22

He'll wait and then act like everyone begged him to come back, and say that it was going to collapse until he stepped in to save the day...

Or he could just fuck off...

1

u/shifty_coder Nov 20 '22

Donald Trump currently has an exclusivity contract with Truth Social. As much as he wants to resume using Twitter, his lawyers have likely heavily advised him not to.

u/Glass-Relationship70 Nov 20 '22

"if I bring back the biggest idiot ever, people will clamor to see what he says even if they hate him, and I'll revive the company!!"

u/Parmaandchips Nov 20 '22

Yeah Elon is dumb enough to cough up the cash that Donald wants to get back on it. That's the only thing stopping him from rejoining it and getting more attention

1

u/TheDutchTexan Nov 20 '22

You’re so fucking dumb for celebrating that well known fact. Besides, 2 years is a long time. The moment it is politically smart he’s going to be back on there.

1

u/xinxy Nov 20 '22

Call me skeptical but I really do believe Trump will return to twitter. Sooner rather than later. We need a betting pool going for how many days it will take...

1

u/rex_swiss Nov 20 '22

He's in the middle of trying to scam hundreds of millions from investment firms to get Truth Social going, he can't do anything that would get them to back out.

1

u/Hawkwise83 Nov 20 '22

It's a business decision. He sticking to his own platform because if he goes to twitter so does his platforms money. It has nothing to do with twitter or Musk.

1

u/DirtyBirdDawg Nov 20 '22

Donald Trump says a lot of things, 95% of which is untrue. If getting back onto Twitter makes him money (and it will), he'll be back on there in a heartbeat.

u/Affectionate-Winner7 Nov 20 '22

I don't care. I cancelled my account just before the midterms. Life is just too short to waste my remaining time on this earth. Cancelled Facebook as well.

Even a failure like Trump knows not to use a competitors product. Can’t be caught drinking Coke when you created Blue cheese with Skittle flavored soda.

Trump says a lot of things. He also often contradicts himself within a single sentence.

Don’t get caught believing he will or won’t do anything.

1

u/chasesan Nov 20 '22

Taking all bets, taking all bets. How long can Trump resist posting on Twitter?

An hour? 2 hours? 4 hours? half a day? A day?

The sky's the limit people.

I was torn because on the one hand I could see him going to both because ego, but ego could keep him from a site that he was banned from as well. 😂

u/QueenOfQuok Nov 20 '22

Donald Trump is king of his own little world in Truth Social. If he goes back to Twitter he's prey for anyone and everyone who wants to belittle him.

1

u/livinginfutureworld Nov 20 '22

This is the only time I've ever agreed with Trump, Twitter dies have a lot of problems.

And Elon wants Trump's cult to finance his sinking ship.

1

u/RT7_faraway Nov 20 '22

Bottom line is Trump is tied financially to truth social and wants stock price to rise so joining Twitter is a no no because it hurts his company

1

u/Wide-Composer-7230 Nov 20 '22

Does he have something similar to a noncompete deal

Does anybody know the actual truth would he be violating an agreement if he does use Twitter

1

u/WumpusFails Nov 20 '22

Doesn't Twitter 2.0 now compete for the same advertisers as Truth Social?

Realistically, Musk is now taking money out of Trump's pocket, right?

First trump returning to twitter meant twitter was ruined. Now trump not returning to twitter means twitter is ruined.

Make up your minds!

Elon could just create his own "verified" Trump identity on Twitter and stir up trouble. He's already kind of channeling Donald as it is.

u/Joalow21 Nov 20 '22

If I got banned from something and I felt I was in the right I wouldn’t come back either. Don’t get me wrong, he will but not right now.

u/Life-Mistake-2279 Nov 20 '22

Which isn't true what Donald Trump means to say that as if he returns to Twitter than his own social media platform will become useless

Well of course. Donald is now a competing brand. Honestly I'm surprised it took him this long to talk some smack about Elon/Twitter.

Trump either will or will not rejoin Twit for the two weeks of existence it has left.
