Former President Donald Trump understands the importance of social media explicitly, having spent a great deal of time as the most influential Twitter user the platform had ever seen.
His thoughts on the 2020 election saw him banned from the site, however, as social media barons from across Silicon Valley erred on the side of their liberal CEO’s. No matter how much Trump kicked, screamed, or sued, Twitter would not reinstate him, (or a vast array of other conservative figures), leaving the former NYC business mogul to once again strike out on his own.
Former President Donald Trump announced Wednesday the forthcoming “TRUTH Social,” a social media network that aims to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”
The app, which will begin a beta launch for invited guests in November 2021, is expected to make its full debut within the first quarter of 2022 and is a part of the newly established Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).
Trump was fired up about the plan.
“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump said. “We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable”
The former President also made it clear that posts on the network would be called “truths”, (a la Twitter’s “tweets”), which should also help Trump accomplish a second goal: Triggering liberals to no end.
