Popular TV host Tucker Carlson, who was fired by Fox News last month, said Tuesday that he would be resuming his show on Twitter “soon.” In a tweet titled “We’re back”, Mr Carlsen shared a video announcing he would launch his show on Twitter, which he described as “the world’s last survivor” to allow free speech. The stage happened.
Without mentioning the exact date, he promised his viewers a “new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years”.

I also want to make it clear that we have not entered into any kind of agreement. Tucker is subject to the same rules and rewards as all content creators,” Mr Musk wrote, retweeting the host’s video.
