Prospective Twitter owner Elon Musk appears to already be going on the offensive against competitors, like former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social, tweeting Wednesday Trump’s platform has a “terrible name” and only exists because “Twitter censored free speech.”

Musk early Wednesday noted Truth Social was topping Twitter and TikTok in App Store downloads before mocking the platform, tweeting it “Should be called Trumpet instead!”

Trump has already stated he does not plan to use Twitter if his account is reinstated, telling Fox News “I am going to stay on TRUTH,” adding he plans to start using his platform in the next week.

The former president otherwise lauded the Twitter board agreeing to a $44 billion price tag for Musk to buy the company, saying “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man.”
