Investing.com – Truth Social is ranked No. 1 on the Apple (NASDAQ:) Store, currently outperforming Twitter (NYSE:) and TikTok, Elon Musk shared on Twitter.

Musk’s purpose in this tweet about former US President Donald Trump’s social media platform is unclear, but this message comes just as the former US President has stated in foxnews that will never return to Twitter.

“I’m not going to use Twitter, I’m going to stay on Truth… I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’s going to make it better and he’s a good man, but I’m going to stay on Truth,” Trump said.

In fact, Trump advanced that he will start “telling the truth” (with a pun on the name of his social network) next week.

Truth Social, Trump Media & Technology Group’s social network, formally launched last month.

Trump was permanently banned from Twitter, Facebook (NASDAQ:), Instagram and Snapchat following the January 6, 2021 riots on Capitol Hill.

Bezos ‘vs’ Musk

Amazon (NASDAQ:) co-founder Jeff Bezos has criticized Musk’s purchase on Twitter, suggesting it may give China “leverage.”

“Did the Chinese government just gain a bit of influence over the town square?” Bezos wrote, hinting at Musk’s business ties to China.

The CEO of Tesla (NASDAQ:) established a factory in Shanghai in 2018, and the company relies heavily on Chinese companies to supply the materials used in its batteries.

“My own answer to this question is probably no,” adds Bezos. “The most likely outcome in this regard is complexity in China for Tesla, rather than censorship on Twitter.”

“But we’ll see. Musk is extremely good at navigating this kind of complexity,” she concludes.

Twitter is banned in China, just like Facebook, Instagram or YouTube.
