Social-Izing What Is Truth Social?
By Patrizia Rizzo | Kevin Quinitchett
FORMER President Donald Trump has been attempting to get back on social media since his permanent ban from Twitter.
Trump, who argued with big tech over his ban, decided to take matters into his own hands and launch his own social platform since leaving office.
In response to his permanent ban from Twitter, Donald Trump announced the release of his own social networking app, TRUTH Social, which will launch on February 21, 2022
What is TRUTH Social?
According to an announcement posted on Twitter by spokeswoman Liz Harrington, Trump said he was creating his own platform called TRUTH Social, claiming that it would “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”
“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American president has been silenced,” Trump said.
The company will be registered under Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), according to a press release.
TRUTH Social is now available for pre-order on the Apple App Store.
When does TRUTH Social launch?
A nationwide rollout of TRUTH Social is expected to be available on February 21, 2022.
Those interested in learning more about the platform and joining are encouraged to visit the TRUTH Social website to sign up for an invite list.
In the press release, Trump said that TMTG was “founded with a mission to give a voice to all.”
The former president also added that he “is excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon.”
The news of TRUTH Social’s release comes after Trump’s team launched conservative social platform GETTR back in July.
GETTR claims its mission is to “promote common sense…challenge social media monopolies, and create a true marketplace of ideas.”
After Trump’s former aide Jason Miller released GETTR, Trump put out a statement denouncing being associated with the app, writing: “I am not on any social media platform in any way, shape, or form, including Parler, GETTR, Gab, etc.
“When I decide to choose a platform, or build or complete my own, it will be announced. Thank you!”
What did Trump say about Twitter?
In early June, Trump praised Nigeria for banning Twitter in the country and expressed remorse for not thinking of doing the same – but said he’ll get another chance in a potential 2024 run.
At the time of his ban back in January of 2021, Trump said he predicted that Twitter would try to silence him and that the company would not exist for long if it were not for Section 230, which protects websites from lawsuits if users post illegal content.
He said he has been negotiating with “various other sites” and would have a “big announcement soon,” and possibly build his own platform.
In the since-deleted @POTUS tweet, Trump claimed that “Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me” and the “75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.
“We will not be SILENCED! Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” Trump tweeted.
“They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most viscous people in the world are allowed to speak freely.”
