The Biden campaign trolled Donald Trump by joining his Truth Social social media platform.
Fox News reported:
Biden campaign officials told Fox News Digital that they are joining Truth Social for the purpose of “meeting voters where they are.”
Republicans can’t even agree on a Speaker of the House, so clearly, not every Republican thinks the same,” a Biden campaign official told Fox News Digital
The Biden campaign confirmed on Twitter that they have joined Truth Social:
We just joined Truth Social, mostly because we thought it would be very funny.

Going where the voters are is one way of putting it. Given Truth Social’s meager user numbers, that reasoning doesn’t hold up well to scrutiny.
A more likely explanation is that the Biden campaign wanted to counter Trump’s misinformation on his own platform and get under the former president’s skin a little.
It is a small move that is a great way to draw attention to the Biden campaign while also allowing them to spread their message that Joe Biden is a candidate for all voters.
A little bit of lighthearted trolling is never a bad thing, especially when the rest of the news can be so heavy, serious, and glum at times.
