For almost the entirety of his presidency, Donald Trump used Twitter to bully opponents and spread false claims. After the former President incited an insurrection, though, the site finally banned his account. Many more Conservatives who used Twitter in similar ways to Trump were also removed.
With Elon Musk close to a deal to purchase the site, many Conservatives believe that the banned accounts will immediately be restored. In fact, Ali Alexander recently claimed that the the buy was the most consequential thing since Trump was elected in 2016.
The Stop the Steal organizer told his listeners:
“You know, I think in November, we’re just looking at a totally [inaudible] world on Twitter. I don’t know if Twitter, you know, maintains its relevance or not, but, you know, that [Elon Musk] took it — that he took out, basically, the assignment desk for social justice warriors. It is the most consequential thing I’ve seen since the election of Trump. But again, I think the election of Trump was more about blocking Hillary. And even though I love Trump and I, you know, paid in blood and sweat and tears for him, blocking Hillary was way more important than electing Trump. That woman’s, you know, the devil incarnate. And so I think they were faced with something very, very similar here.”
