Donald Trump has subject himself to a Twitter ban – that is, if he is allowed to return to the platform.
The one-term president has agreed to restrict Twitter use and focus on using his own social media app, Truth Social, according to a new financial filing.
Under the deal, Mr. Trump must post anything non-political on Truth Social first and can post it on another social media site only six hours later, according to the federal securities filing.
But if Mr Trump wants to post anything “related to political messaging, political fundraising or voting efforts” on a personal social media account, he can do so at any time.
Although he has yet to commit to running for the White House in 2024, Mr. Trump is the favorite candidate among GOP voters, according to a series of polls this year.
The filing was done by Digital World Acquisition Corp, the company that will take Truth Social public.
Mr. Trump was banned from Twitter and all other major social media platforms following the violent attack by his supporters on the US Capitol in January 2021.
Tesla boss Elon Musk has criticized the decision to ban Mr. Trump from Twitter and promised to let him buy the company back if his $44 billion purchase materializes.
The 45th president said he is not interested in returning to the platform, even if his ban was lifted by Mr Musk.
