Critics React to Meta’s ‘Ridiculous Joke’ Decision to Reinstate Trump’s Social Media Accounts

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, has announced that Donald Trump’s accounts will be reinstated on the social media giant’s platforms, leaving some to question the company’s decisions – and whether it will actually help the Oval Office ambitions of the former president in 2024.

Two years ago, Facebook (which had not yet become Meta) and Twitter banned Mr. Trump’s accounts on social media platforms, deeming him in violation of their policies. The bans came in the wake of the Capitol Riot, in which Mr. Trump waited hours to recall his loyalists attacking police officers and destroying property in the federal building.

Now Meta and Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter – now under conservative darling Elon Musk – have reversed course just in time for the 2024 election cycle.

“I was right about Meta all along. Anyone who trusted them – you’re all fools,” TruthorFiction.com editor Brooke Binkowski wrote on Twitter in response to the news.

She was skeptical, however, about how much Mr. Trump’s return to Facebook and Instagram would ultimately help his campaign — and the tech company, which saw a $700 billion loss in value in 2022, according to CBS News.

“It won’t save Meta and it won’t save Trump either,” she wrote. “That momentum is gone. He’s just another pathetic old racist with poor hygiene and no money.

David Roberts, Clean Energy and Policy Researcher, also expressed skepticismbut he was focused on Meta’s willingness to enforce his rules if Mr. Trump broke them.

“This is such a ridiculous joke. Everyone knows that no matter how low the standards, Trump will immediately violate them,” he wrote in a tweet. explain why he won’t ban it again despite this.”

Meta’s global affairs president announced Mr Trump’s return in a Twitter thread, noting that the decision would be “violently criticized”. He noted that the company did not want Mr. Trump to use the platform to undermine the 2024 election in its announcement.

“We just don’t want – if he is to return to our services – for him to do what he did on January 6, which is to use our services to delegitimize the 2024 election, just like he sought to discredit the 2020 election,” he wrote.

The company said that if Mr. Trump violates its rules, he will be suspended from the platform.

“In the event that Mr. Trump posts further infringing content, the content will be removed and suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” the company said in a statement.
