Twitter Inc. under Elon Musk has the potential to end Donald Trump’s Truth Social.

Musk, who reached a deal Monday to buy Twitter for $44 billion, said he aims to make the social-media platform “an inclusive arena for free speech.” While Trump told Fox News on Monday he doesn't plan a Twitter comeback if his permanent ban ends, speculation about his return was enough to torpedo the shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company aiming to merge with Truth Social owner Trump Media & Technology Group.
