(ReliableNews.org) – At the end of April, Twitter released its latest earnings report and it showed the company did not meet its revenue goals for the fourth quarter. The news caused the company’s stock to drop. Former President Donald Trump thinks he knows why it happened.
On Friday, April 30, Trump released a statement about Twitter. He said the social media platform is “totally boring” and said its fight against “freedom of speech” is probably why the company missed its financial goals. The former president also warned that this is something that the country could see play out at other Big Tech companies who have been censoring conservatives.
President Trump reacts to Twitter's stock "plunging" today:
"Twitter stock 'plunged' as results are no longer cutting it for investors. Shares are off 15% today…I guess that’s what happens when you go against FREEDOM OF SPEECH! It will happen to others also."

Twitter banned Trump for life in January. The move caused many conservatives to seek out other platforms. It’s unclear what exactly caused Twitter to miss its financial goals, but it’s entirely possible that it had to do with the company’s assault on free speech. The question now is whether we will see this happen to other companies, as the former president predicted.
