Trump needs to post on Twitter. Too much reach and influence to ignore for America's sake.
80m+ followers plus the entire world as the audience. Meanwhile nobody but Trump supporters are on Truth
Nope feds are on there
Jesus people, trump isn’t going back to Twitter. He couldn’t even if he wanted to.
He signed an exclusivity agreement with TMTG and has a fiduciary duty to post all new content to truth exclusively for 6 hours before it can be put on any other platform.
Here’s the SEC filing for the nth time.
so, tweet a link to Truth 6 hrs after Truthing?
I think that's where we're headed. At least I hope so.
I'm enjoying all the triggered comments on elons feed though. Trump doesn't even need to post to drive them into spasms of REEEEEEE!!
That's what I'm thinking... reeeee'ing is ensuing. Trump will remain silent. We will move on from this. Focus on AZ and Kari and the Runoff in GA.... then sometime this winter... BAM! he will tweet outta nowhere....
That is the best Twitter will get. That and he can have his fundraising bots solicit campaign contributions, that’s about it.
I broke it down and posted the pertinent snippet here:
Truth: “Looking ahead to 2024, we have a lot of work cut out for ourselves”
Twitter (6 hrs after): “Follow me on Truth Social, click the link below 👇 something something something blah blah blah”
At best, I think that's what will happen.
The 6 hour window is for non-political content only. Majority of his posts are political in nature.
Agreed. No way he'd stifle himself knowing that in due time he'd be reinstated. The wait and speculation is part of the tactic.
Wow - we have a war of factoids going. Those are fun. Ok, what's the retort?
You are conflating social commentary with political messaging.
No, that's what you're doing. Especially now that he's a presidential candidate.
Trump can post anything political on any platform.
it automatically renews in perpetuity.
Might be an escape clause written in if something dire, like a war in Ukraine, breaks out. . .
The SAME post... He can still use both...
Till he dies or what?
I posted op meme a few minutes before elon
I doubt it but I will claim he stole it from me
There are trolls too, although not very effective ones
Here’s his perfect opportunity to show the world that the responses to his former tweets were paid shills. Now the responses would be greatly supportive and those who didn’t could be addressed by us on a case by case basis.
I really hope he comes back and slings fire.
I'm not on Truth.
Then again, I'm not on Twitter either.
Many of us aren't.
Yes, I refuse to give my phone number to register an account. Haven't seen any other website that requires this.
Post 24 hours after he posts to Truth
Trump needs to openly delegate a minion to repost his TruthSocial messages on Twitter ... half-an-hour later.
Trump is contractually obligated to only post on Truth Social, but he is allowed to mirror his posts on other social media outlets if they are time-delayed by six hours.
At the same time, with the way they botched the rollout of TS, combined with the fact that it’s still not available in other countries, he could probably do whatever he wants and dare them to sue him.
Personally I care more about winning the Presidency than Truth Social’s quarterly earnings report. Hopefully GEOTUS does too. He’ll be squelched until June 2023, which is a bit too late for my preference.
24 hours later.
He's in a pretty tough position though, if he starts tweeting again, he's going to get sued by Truth Social investors. There's really no other reason to be on there other than for Trump.
I don’t understand why TS needs to go public
Money, there's simply no other reason to go public than to make more money than you could while private.
There are people on YouTube making videos about how to boil an egg with more than that on the Twitter accounts they announce their videos with.
There are 330 million people in the US. 5 million is a city sized gesture.
What’s your point?
One just started and one is well established and promoted by ALL mainstream media until a week ago.
I am real, hence my pointing out that while these alt tech platforms are great to have and everyone should use them, they almost without exception don't even dent the established first movers.
Twitter has been consistently in the top 5 highest traffic sites on the internet for both the US and worldwide for a decade. Often top 3. Trump's 86 million followers on Twitter represents in excess of a percentage point of the world's population. In comparison, Truth Social is a toy.
If this was about promoting alt tech, this would be a different discussion. But it's not. It's about getting elected president.
so you think that one day fruit social is going to have as many users as twitter?.
you think that the majority of people in the country want to use a right-wing social media Network that was made specifically so that the former Republican president has somewhere to post and so that his supporters can post memes for him? that doesn't sound very enticing to the majority of people
fruit social! lol
Why do you care so much about what I think?
At least he has more followers than you on Twitter
There are real dollars invested into DWAC. What do you propose he does about that?
Post on both
And so why care about DWAC at all? Just go check on Twitter.
Trump is contractually obligated to post on TS exclusively for a number of hours before posting anywhere else. If he returns to Twitter it will add traffic to TS.
C'mon Elon, you know when you own Coke you don't drink Pepsi.
Truth Social sucks dick because it's an echo chamber for Conservative Inc.
That's called an echo chamber for the truth, but I understand what you mean.
i’m sure there’s a lot of truth about ukraine on there
just sure of it
Go look for yourself.
It sucks because how the fuck to I find friends also on there? It’s just a follow famous conservatives circle jerk.
besides Truth Social only works if you are on America, you cant access the website or use the app if you live anywhere else
I always hate when my social media doesn't include rampant degeneracy, pedophilia and communism. /s
It gives you somebody to argue with anyway. I come here for my “echo chamber” because we’re all mostly on the same page when it comes to events and data, but TS is on the flipside, and there’s a lot of QAnons still waiting for the storm. The people are nice but it’s not really my vibe.
If you are not with us you are against us.
Elon is the one who owns Coke here. Sorry to say it, but that's just the reality, Twitter is the mainstream platform, and Truth is the niche one.
The sodas were just an example.
Truth is like Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray soda. It’s pretty good, if you happen to be eating a Pastrami on Rye.
Coke and Pepsi are both mainstream. RC is the niche cola
Truth require a phone number to join so I will never go there just like I will never get another twitter account because they want a phone number. Know your demographic most of us are conspiracy folks and giving our number out to look at a website is a major red flag.
I stopped worrying about my phone number after the 10,000th “tooth whitening” spam text, and Oprah apparently has a diet she wants to sell me too.
Our phone numbers are no secret, and if you let that stand in your way then you’re give up way too easily. Shit, I’ve had to confirm my phone number several times just because I either follow too many new people at once, or I act too much like a “bot” because I’m liking several conservative’s posts in a row.
So I confirm it and keep doing my thing. I’m not letting that bullshit prevent me from participating.
I think it's a US case so maybe try a VPN? I live in Asia and I've never needed a phone number to register for a twitter account. I made another one about 3 weeks ago and I just used a throwaway e-mail.
More like he owns Shasta. Willing to bet Shasta owners drink coke.
Seriously guys, the sodas were just a random example. I could have used toothpaste or shoes.
Perfectly stated. Best analogy I've heard on the subject. You sir, get my upvote.
He'll come around--he thrives off publicity
Yeah I think once the presidential campaign gets into full swing he'll at least use it to post rallies and interviews for maximum exposure
😂😂 twitter is so much better with Elon running it.
Everything he's done so far points to the contrary.. We're like 2 weeks in and he's almost completely cleaned house lol
Imagine what he'll accomplish in just 2 more weeks!
Elon is good at coaxing people.
He's convinced conservatives he's one of them despite the fact that he's been running around the world for a decade shilling for the Climate Hoax.
Everything he espouses here shows how he thinks the government should be used to "coerce" behavior that fits into globalist agenda.
Wish I was wrong, and feel free to show me he's anything other than what I said above.
Not saying you're wrong, but nobody wins in a purity spiral. "The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally - not a 20 percent traitor."
Well said. I like Trump but don't agree with everything he says and does. I like Elon but don't agree with everything he says and does.
then you are the enemy and a traitor, no matter what you tell yourself
I take then that you're on your 5th of Trump's safest and most effective vax then?
so Romneys voting record aligning with trump makes him our friend?
I'm just not a one issue cultist. One thing, or even a handful of things, don't damn a person from my support. If it did, I'd be anti-Trump due to his idiotic pushing of the vax.
Elon is fine for what he's doing. He deserves recognition for a lot of things. He also deserves criticism for other things, like his claims to fighting for free speech while being unwilling to talk about Alex Jones.
How about the fact that he shows up at every single globalist conference?
Or that he's the descendent of the head of the Canadian Technocrat Party?
First, I don't give a shit who he's the descendant of. Second, he's one of the most successful global businessmen on the planet. Of course he's at the conferences. It's shady, and I don't care. You act like I'm throwing support behind the dude, when I'm just appreciating the memes he's posting.
Not addressing you personally so much as the wave of pro-Elonism popping up for the obvious reasons.
Where he comes from, and his motivations, matter. What you see in front of you is a manufactured persona. If you take the time to look deeper, you'll see there's something to be wary of.
I kinda give him a pass on the whole climate change thing as it does help his selling electric cars gig it's the whole transhumanism think I can't get past.
What if both tie into his dystopian vision for the world?
Good point ☝️
What dystopian vision? Serious question. I'm going to assume it's worse than basic futuristic ideas.
Elon is a Technocrat. His maternal grandfather, and the family patriarch, was the head of the Canadian Technocrat Party. Many of his actions, affiliations, and statements lead one to believe he's very much onboard.
The Technocrats were big in the 1930's, not too dissimilar to some of the worst of the Nazi programs. They wanted a world where the scientists controlled all of human activity through science and data.
It was a futuristic version of totalitarianism (communism) then, but the technology is almost here now.
I'd be very concerned and look into this history if I were you.
More than happy to provide sources if you're curious.
Sure I'll take a look, provided it's not like a long series of full books I need to read. I will say though, just because his grandfather was a technocrat and Elon is into future tech, it doesn't mean he's into enslaving humanity. Usually he talks about how dangerous this technology will be if not handled carefully.
I will also say that although I am currently pretty pro Elon/Twitter, I am skeptical of all things at all times. Every day I think of ways he might be laying a very elaborate trap, but suspicion isn't enough for me to aid the left and attack the only source of real help we've seen in a while in the culture war we're in.
I need more than maybe to turn on him like so many here have right from the start, though I could settle for extremely probable. Even then, he's still a beneficial ally right now.
This Corbett Report video lays out most of my argument relatively succinctly, if you consider 1 hour succinct.
"Climate change" is so real Obama buys a mansion for $12.75 million or so within about 100 feet from the Atlantic Ocean, and another one on the beach in Hawaii.
They're just master B.S. men.
Elon knows he needs the marketing. He's bought a ruined media company.
Yes. Trump is the only reason Twitter survived in the first place.
Elon himself seems to be driving Trump levels of activity on the site now.
Oh shit both these guys are low key loooving amping this up. Elon knows this will be 2-5x the most viewed tweet of all time and is milking it - and Trump, he was born for moments like this lol.
I thought he was tanking it on purpose and going fully scorched earth with it.
Hahaha Elon has a good sense of humor.
Watch his interview with Nelk. It was an entertaining one
He just wants to get the heat off of him on his own platform because right now there is an army of faggots camping on his posts lmao
I'm one of them, asking him about his stance on Climate Change and government coercion.
Crickets so far.
Elon won't say anything on global warming.
Even if he disagrees with it up and down the list, he won't.
He really wants to go to Mars. This is pretty much his core live-driving dream. Every single one of his companies has a core aspect that says "That would be awesome ... on Mars".
People laugh at things like the cybertruck - but realize this is going to end up with millions of hours of off-road AI data .
Or the Boring Company. "You know, that's within the payload-and-size limit of Starship..."
He's basically been finding ways to do all the things NASA should have been doing for decades ... and getting paid/making money doing it. We've long forgotten one other company was a solar power tower. Which would and did not work ... here But acres of mylar and a stone pillar .... on Mars ...
He's had plenty to say about Global Warming. Easy search on YouTube.
You may be correct on the rest.
I mean from the "Climate Happens, and man isn't doing all that much to it" perspective.
His arguments (that I'm aware of) are from the "We have to get the hell off this planet before it dies!" perspective.
That perspective happens to hype the need for ... going to Mars. He will not will not distract from that intentionally.
I responded to his Bring back Trump poll with a Bring back cassette tapes poll and got 1 no vote. I think it was him cuz I have no followers.
The guy that's funded by government coercion and the climate change hoax doesn't want to answer questions about his stance on those subjects?
I think he just wants controversy. Increase engagement, advertisers stay, then he has time to do whatever he wants with Twitter (whatever that is).
Trump retweeted me in August 2015. One of the highlights of my life.
That's pretty freaking epic, honestly. It's today's version of getting mentioned in Churchill's memoirs or something similar. Love him or hate him, Trump will go down as one of the most important men in the history of mankind.
He will go down as a fluke interesting character unless he actually cements his legacy and changes humanity in some way, I wouldn't say "most important". Dudes a legend but come on. I guess his role will only be known in the future but we have had plenty of "unorthodox" figures throughout history. I just hope Trump can achieve something substantial. Edit: He changed modern politics I guess. Woke more people up. But compared to ancient history stuff like this has happened before
The end of this epic tale is still unwritten.
Trump is not going to come back day 1 after saying he didn't care when he wasn't sure he'd win the poll.
He doesn't want to look weak, desperate, or like he's begging.
But if he's serious about becoming President again, he WILL have to come back when he starts revving up his campaign. If he doesn't...that's a serious problem.
You know what’s funny? You faggots thought Elon was on our side. He’s on his side. He hopes to turn Twitter in a hbo fight night
I’m a faggot.
Sssssshhhhhhh.....don't tell Big Mike.
Butt you're a much nicer faggot than most.
'Elon Musk said former President Donald Trump should not run for a second term, arguing that he’s too old and “too much drama.”
"...it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset"
“Trump would be 82 at end of term, which is too old to be chief executive of anything, let alone the United States of America.”
“Do we really want a bull in a china shop situation every single day!?”
So who cares?
Pepridge farms members.
Thank goodness other people here have a memory longer than yesterday.
Good thing I’m not trying to marry Elon, I just enjoy the entertainment he’s bringing to the culture war.
You guys are just as bad as the left. Maybe someday you’ll figure out no perfect savior is going to lead us to salvation, so we’re going to have to settle for the flawed allies we’ve got. I’d rather have Elon mostly on our side than mostly on theirs.
"Elon is mostly on our side guys I just know it," the clown says in response to a reminder that Elon thinks Trump should never be President again. 🤡🤡🤡😂😂😂
Amused at how downvoted you're getting over that comment, when it is the biggest truth this website should face.
On Monday, MTG is a shill and we hate her. On Tuesday, she's our girl. On Wednesday, Fox News has banned Trump therefore we stop supporting them. On Thursday, half of the posts in the Hot page are links to Fox News articles, under the argument of "they keep my 80 year old grandpa informed".
You know, when the left makes something "illegal" per say, they go all hive mind against it. When the right makes something illegal, that's only for 24 hours lol.
Inconvenient facts get in the way of this place's support for the Current Thing.
He's a Climate Change profiteer and shill.
He's also just bought a huge database for his AI/Transhumanist project.
Love what he's doing on Twitter, and he is a great troll, but I don't trust him for a second.
And he's in bed with the Military Industrial Complex and the C.I.A. Starlink. Ukraine. CCP China.
Big fan war Hamster. However sometimes agendas of people that are not on our side align with our agenda of remaining a free United States. We can support those agendas that align and not support those that don’t. Elon freeing twitter is great we can use it to our advantage.
While I really like your solid, calm reasoning, I fear the whole thing is a Deep State-directed trap. Like Mao's 'Let a hundred flowers bloom' honeypot. And besides that, I think Musk is simply using our President to make money - Trump onboard with Twitter would represent huge financial value.
Anyways... President Trump is staying on TruthSocial. Which is a good thing!
And he needs conservatives to use it so that he has human thought to study. Un-banning Trump encourages them to do exactly that.
Such a devious mind you have.
You think we're all on the same side?
That was a funny episode.
She got addicted to the dog's pain killers.
I took horse paste, lol
Trump has 4 million followers on Truth. 83mm on Twitter. Makes no sense to ignore the platform since it has new ownership.
He'll return. He's running for office.
I mean if Trump is serious about winning 2024 then he needs the exposure.
I am starting to wonder if Trumps investors were set up to quarantine him on Truth Social.
He signed the exclusivity contract with TS last year when Twitter was still firmly in leftist control. Elon didn’t even think about buying Twitter until like April, so this is a completely new development that wasn’t even on GEOTUS’ radar last December.
We’ll have to see how this plays out, because keeping his message confined to TS isn’t going to help him build momentum, and a wrecking ball needs a ton of it.
While Twitter being bought by Elon might not have been on the radar; the idea of chaining Trump in a bubble away from the mainstream is not exactly new as there are a bunch of other platforms and to get the word out he needs to be on as many as possible. By catering to his ego and offering money they may have tricked him into building his own cage.
Trump is so based that he gives zero fucks that he set a world record by getting 100 million followers overnight. Absolute Giga Chad
Omg, I can't believe there are THIS MANY TOTAL IDIOTS.
A reinstated account is restored WITH its previous followers.
It's like if you get banned on FB and then restored months later, you still have your friends and posts.
Wrong.... I had to re-follow him after he got unbanned. So did everyone else.
He isn't wrong. Reinstated accounts do take time to get their followers back but they do come back. Just because you re-followed before all of his followers were back doesn't make you right.
My account got reinstated and I had 0 followers when it happened, went back a few days later and they were all back.
No, not wrong. It's because it takes time for it to be fixed. It isn't instant.
If you actually believe 85+million people followed Trump overnight you're really ignorant.
That's fricking hilarious. I am really liking Elon. He ain't bad for a globalist shill.
I'm convinced Elon is either a comedy genius or he has a crack team.
Trump should post a screen shot of Ashley Biden's diary.
I think Elon got some historical logs regarding engagement and realized Trump directly and indirectly drove huge amounts of traffic in and through the platform. I bet it's a fucking stark comparison in a run chart before/after his ridiculous ban.
GOOD MORNING, ESPECIALLY TO ALL THE HATERS AND LOSERS
He gets about 10% of Twitter likes on Truth. Foolish is the only rational way to describe his reluctance to tap that exposure.
Not to mention he needs to also be persuading those not already on his side, not just bouncing stuff off old supporters.
For now he should just delay-post. During the campaign though he will need to post all campaign stuff to twitter. And once president he should remove all executive social media accounts on all platforms that don't respect free speech.
I bet... Delay posting would give Truth even more attention... As people may sign up on truth to hear it first. i bet 98% of his followers on Twitter don't even know of truth platform.
Donnie has been 2 years sober
It's better if he doesn't post for now. It fucks with all them.
Yeah but if he does post now… imagine how silly people would get over it. It’d be hilarious. He could just post Hi. And a rifle wave of faggots would swarm him like he just shook a box of bees.
I don't see it happening until election season warms up.
That's pretty funny!
Yep, got a good chuckle from that one
Still over 70K Trump supporters banned since 2016. I'll stick with Truth Social.
Lol I saw this meme here earlier today
Trump said he won't go back...
Sometimes I do love Elon.
It'S about fucking time.... fuck every liberal who doesn'T LIKE IT ...you need him sO MUch MORES THAN HE NEEDS YOU
