Twice defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton confirmed that she will not leave Twitter even if President Donald Trump returns to the platform.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s Mornings with host Zerlina Maxwell, Clinton said, “Oh, I don’t think I’ll quit.”
‘At least for that reason,” she continued. “I think that it’s not easy, but we have to be present in these echo chambers, these information ecosystems, in order to compete in the marketplace of ideas.”
Trump doesn’t plan to return to Twitter even if the site makes his account active again.
“I am staying on Truth,” Trump said. “I like it better, I like the way it works, I like Elon, but I’m staying on Truth.”

Mr. Musk has said Twitter will be a free-speech platform but promised advertisers it will not become a “hellscape,” and a content moderation council will be formed to handle people who repeatedly violate the platform’s rules.
However, Mrs. Clinton wants those who “incite violence” to be prohibited from using platforms like Twitter. Mr. Trump was banned by Twitter’s previous management following the Jan. 6, 2021 riots, when his supporters breached the Capitol.
“It’s not easy, and, you know, I don’t think people who incite violence should be allowed onto privately owned media platforms. But we’ll see how that unfolds,” she said.
