Former President Donald Trump insisted on Friday that he will not return to Twitter. The president referred to the purchase of the digital platform by Elon Musk and criticized the process in which the negotiation with the company took place.

Trump argued that “there is no way Elon Musk is going to buy Twitter at such a ridiculous price, especially since realizing it is a company largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts.” In addition, Trump said that, in his view, “Truth Social is MUCH better than Twitter.”

Following Donald Trump’s comments about Twitter, Elon Musk posted a tweet informing that the deal for the full purchase of the social network was “temporarily” on hold while the company verifies what the true proportion of real users is.

It all comes after the company acknowledged that at least 5% of the app’s users are fake. “Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted on Friday, along with a Reuters report on the matter.

Hours later, Musk clarified that he remains “committed” to acquiring the platform. According to Reuters, Twitter shares fell nearly 20% between one tweet and the next, and recovered ground after Musk’s clarification.
