It seems Trump has decided that if you can’t join ’em you should beat ’em.
In recent news, the former US president has decided to ‘stand up’ to social media giants like Twitter and Facebook that locked him out of their kingdoms and is now reportedly launching his own social media platform/app.
It’s called TRUTH Social according to Reuters, and is set to be a merger between Trump Media and Technology Group, and a special acquisition company (SAC).
According to a press release, Trump wrote:
“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.
“I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech,” he expressed.
Now just for a reminder as to why Trump isn’t allowed to play with the other kids on the social media playground, the former US president was a proponent of posts connected to terms like insulting, inflammatory or outright falsehoods, as the BBC reminds us.
It’s also not Trump’s first attempt at ‘having his voice heard’ after being exiled, social media style. Earlier this year he launched ‘From the Desk of Donald J Trump’ which was considered by many as a blog.
The fruit of Mr. Trump’s grudge in the form of the app is set for a beta launch next month, and a full on rollout in early 2022.
It’s also stated that a subscription video-on-demand service named TMTG+ will also be part of the deal, set to include entertainment, news and podcasts.
