A new federal securities filing indicated that former President Donald Trump could return to Twitter if and when his permanent ban from the social media platform is rescinded.
Elon Musk, who is proposing to buy Twitter, has said he would allow Trump to return to the social media site. The former president was banned in January 2021 after the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
The Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) — backed by blank-check company Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) — launched Truth Social to compete against Twitter, and Trump has said he wouldn’t return to tweeting even if reinstated by Musk. By the way, you can follow Todd on Truth Social by searching for “ToddStarnes.”
A new DWAC filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, however, indicated Trump could return, albeit with a self-imposed restriction.

“President Trump is generally obligated to make any social media post on TruthSocial and may not make the same post on another social media site for 6 hours,” the filing said. “Thereafter, he is free to post on any site to which he has access. Thus, TMTG has limited time to benefit from his posts and followers may not find it compelling to use TruthSocial to read his posts that quickly.
“In addition, he may make a post from a personal account related to political messaging, political fundraising or get-out-the-vote efforts on any social media site at any time.”

That seemingly would restrict Trump tweets on social issues, business matters, etc., though he’d have more freedom with “political messaging.”
The filing also included an overview of Big Tech social media sites Twitter and Facebook. Continue reading at Newsmax.
