However, even if Trump doesn’t intend to budge on which social networks he uses, his ‘return’ to Twitter is, of course, causing quite the stir online. Since Trump came back to the platform, some accounts have claimed they were suddenly following his account despite never once clicking follow before his suspension.
Barrister Adam Wagner tweeted: “I am sure I was not following Trump and now I am. I made a decision to unfollow him before he was banned and checked that was still the case when he was reinstated.”
Author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff added: “I do NOT and would NOT follow Donald J Trump but ‘someone’ [arrow emoji] @elonmusk automatically added him to my following. See if you’re now following him too.”
“Why are people following Trump who never followed him before? This is very sinister,” another account noted.
Musk is yet to comment on the reports, and has instead shared a NSFW meme which appears to suggest he thinks Trump will soon be tempted back onto Twitter.
