The day before, at the end of a poll which saw a majority emerge in favor of restoring the account of the former Republican president – 51.8% out of 15 million votes – the new boss of Twitter, who presents himself as a defender freedom of expression, had taken action.
But this joke from Elon Musk to Donald Trump did not really make Milo Manara laugh. On his Facebook account, the author of the drawing in turn shared a diversion of his own work – taken from an illustrated version of the libertine tales of Jean de La Fontaine, as the journalist from BFM Jérôme Lachasse – where he imagines his lawyers going after Elon Musk.
” I wish Elon Musk was forced to tweet a thousand times: ‘I will never use Milo Manara’s drawings again without permission. I will never use Milo Manara’s drawings again without permission. I will never use again…’ writes the world leader in realistic erotic comics.

Since this Saturday, all eyes have been on the @realDonaldTrump account, on the lookout for any activity. This account assigned to “45th President of the United States of America”and which has just announced its candidacy for 2024, has the now famous thumbnail on a blue background supposed to guarantee that it has been verified.
The last message dates from January 8, 2021, the billionaire let it be known that he will not go to the inauguration ceremony of President Joe Biden, whose election he does not recognize. On the same day, Twitter had permanently closed the account of the former president, then counting 88.8 million subscribers, facing the “risk of further incitement to violence”. The platform had already suspended it on January 6, after the Capitol was invaded by its supporters.
Donald Trump, who like no one knew how to use Twitter during his presidency to dictate the media agenda, bombarding the platform with virulent declarations and shocking announcements from morning to night, will he be able to resist the tweets of the blue bird where some 87 million subscribers follow him?
