Donald Trump is seeking to regain control of his social media accounts, specifically Facebook and Twitter. His campaign is formally petitioning Facebook to unblock his account which was locked in response to the US Capitol riot two years ago. The Facebook ban was not indefinite and the company has been deliberating on whether to let Trump back on the site. Trump’s campaign argues that the ban on his account has distorted the public discourse and that Trump's political voice has been silenced. Twitter CEO Elon Musk has already restored Trump’s Twitter account and now it seems like only a matter of time before the former president will start using the platform again. Still up in the air is how this will affect Truth Social and whether Trump will decide to dump trying to build up his own social media site in favor of using platforms that people are actually on.
