Is Trump about to make a 'HUGE' comeback on social media?
Trump's account was blocked from the network in early 2021 for his role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by a mob of his supporters wanting to reverse the 2020 election results.
Sources reported on Friday that former US President Donald Trump plans to make a comeback on several social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube after he had been allowed to return to the online platforms.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump plans to benefit from full access to all three platforms in order to promote his candidacy in the upcoming presidential run in 2024.
Trump's account was blocked from the network in early 2021 for his reported role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by a mob of his supporters wanting to reverse the 2020 election results.
Trump, who had over 88 million followers on Twitter when his account was disabled, thrived in using it as a voice during his presidency, tweeting policy announcements, criticizing political rivals, and engaging with supporters.

Trump's Twitter account was restored on November 20, 2022 after Elon Musk, the platform's new owner, conducted a poll in which a small majority of respondents supported the move, just days after the former US president announced another White House candidacy, but he had stated at the time that he will not return to the popular platform, and instead focus on his own network, Truth Social, despite that he had previously voiced the request that his account be reinstated a month prior.
Truth Social Network (TSN) was launched in August 2022 and reported 1.7 million unique visitors from the United States in September 2022.
A Pew Research survey revealed in October 2022 that 27% of Americans said they heard of the network, but only 2% said they turned to it for news.
