Trump’s new social media: What It Is About?

  • The Associated Press released a statement in March 2021 that Trump would launch his site soon. 
  • British company’s head of Marketing said they are currently desiring legal advice to understand the next steps and options available to protect their brand. 
  • The media released the statement that Trump created the application as he kicked off several social platforms last year because he incited the Capitol riot.

Truth Social, the inexperienced social media platform created by former President Donald Trump, “free from political discrimination,” launched Monday. The applications shot to the top of Apple’s most downloaded list. But it also quickly rolls as it contains buggy registration processes, long waitlists, and sign-up glitches.

NPR’s Bobby Allyn said Trump created the applications as he kicked off several social platforms last year over his provocation of the Capitol riot.

What about the application? How is it?

The application’s functions and style are similar to Twitter’s, authorizing users to create personalized profiles, follow others, and create postings, which the app refers to as “Truths” and “Re-Truths” rather than tweets and retweets. However, its ambitions for scope filtering will set it apart from mainstream social media.

Truth Social joins a growing list of so-called alternative social media platforms that claim to protect free expression and give users the ability to publish whatever they want with less control than Twitter and others.

Smaller conservative social networks like Gettr and Parler lure some conservatives away from social media behemoths like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, as Big Tech grapples with how to filter disinformation and hate speech on their platforms with varied results.

Why is Trump introducing his own social media platform?

Donald Trump was banned from Twitter for life on January 8, 2021, for supporting the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6. The outgoing President is enraged: a compulsive Twitter user who could write messages several dozen times a day during his presidency. Instead, he is suddenly denied access to his favorite social network.

Trump effectively declared war on Big Tech when his social media accounts were suspended. Then, last year, the President announced the launch of his own social media site in response to the tyranny of the tech titans, who have used their unilateral power to stifle dissenting voices in America.

What does Trump say about the small oligarchy of tech titans?

Dissimilar with the Big Tech platforms, Trump said that there would be no shadow-banning, throttling, demonetizing, or messing with algorithms for political manipulation. We will not be treating operators like lab rats for social trials or labeling alternative views as disinformation.

We will not silence our corresponding people simply because they might be wrong or worse because we think that Americans can’t handle the certainty.

Truth Vs. Tyranny of the Tech Giants

Along with the Truth, the former President said in October’s statement, he wants to stand up to the tyranny of the tech giants. Also, they have used their unilateral power to silence dissenting voices in America.

According to the announcement, the site is controlled by the newly founded Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). This structure also planned to provide a video-on-demand (VOD) service and non-woke podcasts.

In his further statement, Trump said that we live in a world where the Taliban has a sizable Twitter following while your favorite American President has been effectively silenced. This is not acceptable.

Is it only generate hype?

Five individuals were killed immediately after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in the weeks leading up to President Biden’s inauguration. Twitter then suspended Trump indefinitely due to the potential of further incitement to violence, thereby disconnecting him from his almost 89 million followers.

Furious that he could no longer use his favorite megaphone, the former President planned to launch a social network. Truth Social was made available to testers in February before going general on Monday when it topped Apple’s App Store’s downloads chart.

What is the current status of Trump’s social media? 

Donald Trump’s purpose of starting “Truth Social,” a social media company backed by special purpose acquisitions, early next year may have met a snag when US regulators requested details on the deal on Monday.

The request for information from Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC), a blank-check SPAC poised to merge with Trump Media & Technology Group, comes as a powerful Republican congressman, Devin Nunes, announced his departure from politics to join the Trump media venture as CEO.

As shown in a press statement from Trump Media & Technology, the media operation would open in the first quarter of next year, with Truth Social beginning before the 2022 midterm elections and a possible subscription video-on-demand service following later.
