Donald Trump Jr uncancelled by Twitter as Hillary Clinton's follower count slumps after Elon Musk's takeover, Nigel Farage claims
GB News' Nigel suspects the Twitter algorithm has already changed, just over a day after Elon Musk clinched his takeover
Nigel Farage has claimed that Donald Trump Jr has been uncancelled by Twitter, just over a day after Elon Musk clinched a deal to take over the social media firm.
Nigel told GB News that he suspects Twitter has “changed its algorithm” before Mr Musk takes over the company.
The Tesla CEO has said he hopes to make Twitter the world's "digital town square" by allowing more freedom of speech.
And Nigel believes this process has already started.
He said: “I had a phone conversation at 8 o’clock this morning with a quite prominent and controversial Brexiteer who overnight had his account on Twitter unsuspended.
“Yes he’s been suspended for months, he didn’t even know why.
“And today in America, quite dramatic actually, Donald Trump Jr, Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan have had big increases in their followers, and I think that’s because people have become uncancelled.
“Most of them were cancelled for daring to question the election result on November 3, 2020, in America.
“But on the other side of the coin, Hillary Clinton has lost 18,000 followers today, Kamala Harris has lost 22,000 followers today and if you go through CNN presenters they have all lost large numbers.”
He continued: “Why? I suspect that some of the ultra-liberals have just left Twitter, we’ve had the extraordinary situation of the European Commission suggesting that maybe Twitter wouldn’t be able to operate in Europe.
“We’ve had senior democrats saying that Musk is now a threat to democracy, I suspect the algorithm is being changed.
“I suspect there are those working in Twitter that are trying to burn the evidence before Elon Musk gets in and sees what their racket has been and decides to sack them.
“One of the reasons I think that the liberal elite are screaming is they’ve had it their own way for several years and what Musk is going to do, I hope and pray, is give us a level playing field.”
