Prince Alwaleed bin Talal posted a tweet on Friday for the first time since his release from detention, The National reported.

“With my son @KhaledAlwaleed, my daughter @Reem_Alwaleed, my grandchildren, and the company of my family and people in an outdoor camp,” he tweeted, posting pictures of the outing.
Days before his detention, Alwaleed bin Talal's last tweet was on November 1, 2017 where he expressed his pride in Flynas airlines.
Alwaleed spent more than two months in detention, along with princes and businessmen as a part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s crackdown on corruption.

Earlier last week, he spoke to Reuters before his release and told them that his confinement was a “misunderstanding,” explaining that “There are no charges. There are just some discussions between me and the government.”

“I have nothing to hide at all. I‘m so comfortable, I‘m so relaxed. I shave here, like at home. My barber comes here. I‘m like at home, frankly speaking,” he said.

He also said that he supports reform efforts by Mohammed bin Salman.

Meanwhile, he continued to maintain his innocence of any corruption.

Prince Alwaleed, whose net worth has been estimated by Forbes magazine at $17 billion, said that he plans to stay in Saudi Arabia following his release.
