Trump’s son goes for alternative App, tells dad to forget Twitter
US President Donald Trump’s son sparked a fierce debate on social media after he asked the South African born tech Elon Musk to develop an application as an alternative to help his dad.
His remarks follows the permanent suspension of President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.
In a recent Instagram video, Donald Trump Jr said told Musk to create an app which will save ‘free speech’ in America.
“I am not looking for a conservative echo chamber. I want a platform to argue my ideas vs someone else’s and not just people in a place telling me what I want to hear. Elon, why don’t you do that? Get out there and come up with a concept. I think you are literally the guy to save free speech in
America,” he said.
The company said accounts used by Trump to try to get around the ban could face permanent suspension, under its “ban evasion” policies.
“Twitter is not about free speech,” Trump wrote on the presidency’s account, hinting at possibly building his own social media platform in the near future.
Trump has been banned from several other social media platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, after his supporters stormed the US Capitol last week.
