ELON MUSK TO BUY TWITTER FOR $ 44 BILLION

Truth Social is a social media platform that was founded by Trump Media & Technology Group in opposition to Twitter, intending to give users an opportunity to have “an open, free, and honest global conversation,” according to its website.

The platform was created shortly after former President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter and many conservatives migrated over to it.

Many people were swift to criticize Musk’s purchase of Twitter, something he welcomed as he said he hopes his critics remain on the platform.
