Following Musk’s reinstatement of Trump, some of his tweets mysteriously vanish

Musk is making some peculiar moves in an effort to entice Trump back to the podium.
Elon Musk has reinstated Donald Trump’s Twitter account after utilizing a Twitter poll to choose whether to do so. On January 6, some of Trump’s supporters attacked the Capitol while others used the social media site to spread false information about the election.

Trump’s tweets have magically disappeared, though, as Musk tries to win Trump back with jokes. This might be an indication that Musk’s Twitter will have some (if more forgiving) red lines after all.

Social media corporations discovered the hard way how to handle a president who lost an election but used their platforms to pretend that he had won at the start of 2020. The president’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, according to Trump’s favorite platform, which removed his account after trying a number of different tactics, including labeling his tweets as false information and deleting posts that violated the platform’s rules.

Following suit were Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and the knitting-related social networking site Ravelry. He really had no choice but to use Farmville corn to spell out “MAGA” in order to communicate with his followers prior to joining his new site Truth Social. The major social media platforms made it plain that they did not want Trump to use their platforms to disseminate false information or maybe incite violence like that which occurred on January 6.

Before Musk took charge. The complicated issue, which had consequences for democracy generally and whether advertisers wanted to continue spending money on the website, was then put to a vote on Twitter.

Trump’s account has been restored, although he has not yet used the platform. One explanation could be that before posting anything to any other social media network, Trump must first post his ideas to his platform Truth Social for a period of six hours.

It’s also possible that Trump and Musk don’t get along well. Trump once wrote on Twitter that “I could have said ‘drop to your knees and beg,’ and hailed Elon Musk for coming to the White House asking for help on all of his many subsidized projects, whether it’s electric cars that don’t drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere, without which subsidies he’d be worthless.”

Musk has nonetheless made an effort to use memes to prod him into visiting the site again.

People have noted that a few of Trump’s tweets are missing since the account returned, which is now doing so without a user.


The deleted tweets were made on the day of the capitol riots, but they still contain classic Dril phrases like “the Coca Cola company is not happy with me—okay, that’s I’ll still keep drinking that rubbish.”

On January 6, as his supporters chanted “hang Mike Pence” and erected gallows, Trump tweeted: “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify.”

His tweets from January 6 no longer include that one, and there is no longer any mention of the attack being the result of election fraud.

The tweet stated, “These are the things and situations that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so rudely and savagely torn away from great Americans who have been unjustly and unfairly treated for so long.” “Go in peace and affection to your home. Never forget this day!”

The deleted tweets have been interpreted by some to mean that Musk’s platform still has red lines around election misinformation and incitement of violence, even though Musk has made a number of changes to the platform’s safety policies, including reinstating Kanye West’s account a week after he made a number of antisemitic remarks on the platform and Jordan Peterson and the Babylon Bee who both violated the platform’s hateful conduct policy towards transgender people.

We won’t be able to determine with certainty where these lines fall until Trump gets back on the stage.
