Trump trolls Twitter over stock plunge as feud continues
Twitter shares drop 15% on Friday as social media giant missed expectations.
Nearly four months after he was kicked off Twitter, former President Donald Trump is getting a bit of revenge as he trolls the social media giant for a 15% dive in its stock price caused by missed market expectations.
"Twitter stock plunged as results are no longer cutting it for investors," Trump crowed Friday evening after markets closed with Twitter substantially down. "Shares are off 15% today. Bad forecasts are hurting the outlook but more importantly, in my opinion, it has become totally BORING as people flock to leave the site.
Trump suggested Twitter's market decline was aided by its censorship policies. "I guess that’s what happens when you go against FREEDOM OF SPEECH! It will happen to others also," he said in a statement released by his office in Florida.
Twitter’s stock price dropped 15.16% on Friday, to $55.22, wiping out nearly all of the its 2021 gains. Twitter opened the year trading at $54.43 per share, and had climbed above $80 two months ago before trending downward.
