Following Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, nearly all users have levied complaints against Musk’s policies. Many have gone so far as to leave the platform altogether, leading the remaining Twitter employees to urge Musk towards drastic action. Inspired by the users that remained, the majority being conservatives, Elon Musk tweeted: “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.”
Backlash exploded with people citing the many reasons why Trump’s account was suspended in the first place. These sentiments were ignored by Musk, however, as they were not expressed on the Twitter platform. Donald Trump’s reinaugural tweet read: “Great to be back. Fantastic job, elon. I plan to do great things, there are fantastic things in our future!”
“The comments were, groundbreakingly for Twitter, completely positive,” said one user. “Whether it be because 84% of users have left by now or because critics were immediately suspended.”
Since then, the Twitter experience has been reportedly “the best it’s been in years.” While the amount of users has substantially decreased, the platform has also eliminated all arguments and controversies. For the current users, it is a paradise for information exchange, but for everyone else, they still have Instagram.
