This week, the world was abuzz with news that Elon Musk bought Twitter. The innovator promised to restore the social network as a free speech platform.
Some speculated that Donald Trump would be welcomed back to the network. Trump himself said he wouldn’t instead, he’ll focus on his own platform, known as “TRUTH Social.”
Although being “live” since February, Trump hadn’t used the service. Until now.
Former U.S. president Donald Trump posted a brief message on Truth Social late Thursday for the first time since the app he founded launched two months ago, saying “I’M BACK!”
And after only one hour, the post got more attention than Biden’s “top” tweet.
From The Gateway Pundit:
After four hours the President of the United States had only 1,199 retweets. He has 33 million followers…
President Trump published his first post on Truth Social tonight. After an hour Trump had 42,000 [reposts] and over 100,000 likes. He has 2 million followers on Truth Social.
The results of these two posts show the alarming contrast between Trump’s social network and Biden’s.
Biden allegedly has 33 million followers on Twitter. Yet his post, after four hours, was reposted only 1,199 times, with only 4,788 “likes.”
Meanwhile, Trump’s post on TRUTH received 42,000 reposts and 100,000 “likes” after one hour.
He currently enjoys 2 million followers on the social app.
How can we account for such drastically different responses? It’s no mystery.
Twitter has been blasted for having upwards of 30% spambots. Many “top” liberal accounts boast tens of millions of followers—but with very low engagement.
Meanwhile, Trump’s social app is fairly new. Many people still can’t create accounts, due to massive demand. So, it’s safe to assume those who are following him are actual users.
In addition to this, Donald Trump is beloved by millions as a president who put Americans first. Joe Biden, meanwhile, is suffering from low approval even among his own party.
Plus, he is becoming more and more incoherent, as people fear the worst about his mental health.
It’s hard to believe there are many people left (outside the DNC) that still believe in old Joe. So, why would they pay attention to his tweets?
- Trump returned to social media with his first post to TRUTH.
- The post receives 42,000 reposts and 100,000 likes in one hour.
- Meanwhile, Biden’s “top” tweet had only 1,000 reposts and 4,000 likes.
