Former President Donald Trump will sign himself, according to an SEC filing from Digital World Acquisition Corp. partially limited to social media, even if Elon Musk lifts Trump’s ban on Twitter.

Trump is required to post first on Truth Social, a new social network he supports, and cannot post the same content on any other social media site for six hours. After that, according to the filing, he can post on “any website he has access to.”

The six-hour policy would primarily impact Trump’s Twitter usage if he’s allowed back on the platform under potential owner Musk.

Trump remains free to post on any platform from a personal account at any time about political messaging, political fundraising or efforts to get out the vote, the filing added, which could give him leeway should he run for office in 2024.

Digital World Acquisition has a deal to take Trump Media & Technology Group, which owns Truth Social, public.

Twitter permanently suspended Trump from the platform in January 2021 following his supporters’ attack on the US Capitol. The company said it made the decision after the Jan. 6 riots “due to the risk of further incitement to violence.” Trump was an avid tweeter and had more than 80 million followers on the platform at the time.

Trump has said he would not return to Twitter even if invited, but CNBC previously reported that some people close to him say they expect Trump to return to the platform anyway.
