Trump Is Dead: Concerns that Elon Musk might allow widespread misinformation have led to the spread of intentionally false reports on Twitter, such as the one about the death of former President Donald Trump.
After several Twitter users reported Tuesday that the former president had passed away, the hashtag #TrumpIsDead became a top trending topic.
Truth Behind His Death News
Last week, Musk finalized his acquisition of Twitter and has since pushed for increased “free speech” on the platform, including the restoration of accounts that had been suspended for spreading disinformation. Some have voiced concern that the tech tycoon’s strategy will make Twitter a safe space for alt-right conspiracy theorists.
Moments after Musk announced that Twitter users would soon be able to buy verified “blue check” status for $8 per month, rumors that Trump had died began to circulate. The policy shift has been met with increased backlash from those who worry that Musk is aiding the spread of disinformation.
Comedian Tim Heidecker, responding to news that the former president was spreading a false conspiracy theory regarding the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, tweeted that Trump was “dying,” which may have been the seed that grew into the widespread belief that Trump had actually died.

Unfortunately, it sounds like Trump is passing away, as Heidecker tweeted. “It has occurred to me that he may be suffering from a terminal illness. The truth is that we have no idea, but it’s probably not good.”
A friend just told me that he passed away,” @drivebee wrote, accompanied by a “slightly frowning face” emoji.
In response to @drivebee’s tweet, Heidecker said, “Look folks there are 1 of 2 things that could be happening.” “Either Trump is already dead and they’re trying to hide it, or he’s in a critical condition. In which camp do you find yourself?”

A short while later, Twitter user @mylifeisabiglie tweeted, “It’s official, Trump has died,” alongside a photoshop-embellished fake CNN article claiming that Trump had “died of autoerotic asphyxiation in his Florida home” on Tuesday.
Heidecker later tweeted, “Many are using #TrumpIsDead to spread the word.” “The news has saddened many people.” Furthermore, Heidecker stated that he “heard” Trump’s death was “very bad” and that he “died in a sick way.”
