(TotalConservative.com) – Major conservative media network, The Daily Wire, made an announcement on Tuesday that it will now stream premium content exclusively on Twitter, a move other media creators and personalities seem to be making.
Just a few weeks ago, Tucker Carlson announced he would be relaunching a new version of his show on Twitter after it was canceled by Fox News last month. Carlson’s show was the highest-rated show on the television network, and his move to Twitter represents a major development in online media.
Now, The Daily Wire will join Carlson and others in using Twitter as a primary way to reach viewers.
The social media platform used to be catered to political leftists before Elon Musk purchased the company last year. After Musk took over, he purged a large portion of the workforce, lifted previous censorship restrictions, and even released an entire cache of documents and information (titled the “Twitter Files”) about why such rules were in place as well as the political bias that was integrated into Twitter’s policies.
Musk reinstated a bunch of accounts that were banned under the previous leadership, including former President Donald Trump. Trump still hasn’t posted on the platform since being reinstated, sticking to his promise that he had no interest in returning and focusing on his own social media platform, Truth Social.
According to Jeremy Boreing, CEO of the Daily Wire, the network received a lot of positive feedback, both from viewers and advertisers, when deciding to stream popular conservative commentator Matt Walsh’s show on the social media platform. Boreing said they will now be streaming shows from other hots on Twitter for free, beginning on May 30.
Boreing described Twitter as “the largest free speech platform in the world,” as opposed to platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube, which limit the reach and/or demonetize content creators its censors dislike.
