American businessman Elon Musk would renew the blocked account of former President Donald Trump if the agreement on the purchase of Twitter goes through successfully. He said this at a conference on the Financial Times Future of the Car on Tuesday. CNN informed.

 

 

"I think banning Donald Trump's account was a mistake," the 50-year-old billionaire told the conference. Musk has said in the past that the social network should be more careful when permanently closing accounts.

 

Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, shares his view. "There are some exceptions, but in general, if we have to block someone, it's usually our fault."

 

 

 

Musk reminded that he doesn't own Twitter yet, so "this is not something that will definitely happen". SpaceX founder and co-owner of Tesla plans to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion. The agreement is yet to be supported by shareholders and regulators.

 

Trump's account with 89 million Twitter followers was blocked in January this year for violating the platform's rules and inciting violence. However, Trump announced in April that he would not return to Twitter, even if his account was renewed. After blocking his account, he created his own social network, Truth Social, which people are not very interested in.
