Former President Donald Trump will limit himself to some extent on social media, even if Elon Musk gets up Trump’s ban, according to an SEC filing from dDigital World Acquisition Corp.

Trump is forced to post on Truth Social for the first time, a new social network he is supporting, and cannot post the same content on another social media site for six hours. After that, he can post to “any site he has access to,” according to the repository.

The six-hour policy would primarily affect Trump’s Twitter Use if authorized to return to the platform under potential owner Elon Musk.

Trump is still free to post from a personal account about political messages, political fundraising, or efforts to quit voting on any platform at any time, the filing added, which could give him leeway should he run for office in 2024. .

Digital World Acquisition Corp has a deal to take Trump Media & Technology Group, which owns Truth Social, public.

Twitter permanently suspended Trump from the platform in January 2021 following the attack by his supporters on the United States Capitol. The company said it made the decision after the January 6 uprising “due to the risk of further incitement to violence.” Trump was an avid tweeter and had more than 80 million followers on the platform at the time.

Trump said he would not return to Twitter even if invited, but CNBC previously reported that some people close to him they say they still expect Trump to return to the platform.
