Former presidential candidate Howard Dean announced on Monday that he would leave Twitter if Elon Musk takes over the company and runs the controversial social media platform.
According to a report by The Blaze, Dean promised to leave; however, reporting and some responses are all readers can go off of, as the original tweet has since been deleted.
“Hi Twitterverse. Many thanks for the knowledge and sharing over the past ten years or so. If Musk takes over Twitter I will be off within a few hours. Might be just as well for my well being but I’ve learned a lot of valuable stuff from many of you. Thank you all. Howard,” the tweet read.
Dean has a long history with the Democrat party, serving as the governor of Vermont for more than a decade. However, he is most prominently known for a shout he let out in 2004 during a presidential bid. Dean has also served as the chair of the Democratic National Committee.

Not everyone seemed frustrated with the announcement with one user saying, “Bye Howard!! Will you please do that crazy scream that cost you the nomination back in 2004 when you go!!! THAT WAS RIDICULOUS!! IN FACT, THAT’S ALL I REMEMBER ABOUT YOU!!! Howard Dean=IRRELEVANT!! #BAHAHAHAHA.”
OANN’s Stephanie Hammell tweeted, “Don’t let the TwitterVerse door hit you on the way out. Byeeeeeeeeee.”

However, some think that the promises are just too good to be true, as was the case with one user who pointed out the now-empty promises of many progressives to leave the country if former President Donald Trump was elected to the White House in 2016.
