TRUTH Social To Stand Up To Big Tech
In a release, Trump issued a statement on why he created his own social network platform. “I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to 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. 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. Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!” Trump added.
TRUTH Social Is Pushback Against Trump’s Ban From Other Social Media Platforms
Earlier this year, major social media companies banned Trump as a result of the January 6 capitol riots. Facebook and Twitter led the ban, which disabled the President's accounts and prevented him from posting messages. It also banned other users from forwarding any messages or posts coming from Trump’s accounts.
This is not the first time that Trump started his own social network. Earlier this year, he launched a blog “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” but shut it down almost immediately.
In between, the Republican stalwart also petitioned a federal court to reinstate his Twitter account. “Coerced by members of the United States Congress, operating under an unconstitutional immunity granted by a permissive federal statute, and acting directly with federal officials, Defendant is censoring Plaintiff, a former President of the United States,” Trump’s motion wrote.
Recapturing His Audience
The former president has been planning the launch of his new endeavor for months. However, advisers earlier feared that many Americans will think that this new platform is like his failed blog.
A low turnout and underwhelming user-based can cast doubt on the President’s staying power in the social media universe.
What Trump wants to recreate is his large number of Twitter followers, which number in the millions. At one point, his account had over 88.7 million followers. As a result, his presidency was often defined by his frequent use of Twitter. He used the messaging app to respond to critics or announce policy changes or appointments.
Trump Media & Technology Group
Trump plans to launch a beta site for selected guest users by November. He expects to fully launch the network by the first quarter of 2022.
The announcement came with the message that the Trump Media & Technology Group will merge with Digital World Acquisition Corp. This will allow TMTG to become a publicly listed company. DWAC is a blank check company, an entity whose purpose is to acquire or merge with other companies
The Trump Media & Technology Group also announced plans to launch a subscription-based video service called TMTG+ that will show “non-woke” programming.
Reality television producer Scott St. John will call the shots on TMTG+.St. John previously worked on national shows such as “Deal or No Deal” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Mastermind Move!! Many of us are being stifled. To stifle others finds root cause to be an underlying fear… TRUTH will always find a way..
I’m not a Fan at all with the condescending downplay on being “woke” however. There’s definitely misconception regarding the comprehension of what being woke is…
The term is being exploited much like e.g. narcissistic, parental alienation, critical race theory, or cancel culture, and my personal favorite…..Justice.😁..
Being WOKE is being present, mindful, attentive, & cognizant of at least some of life’s existence outside of an indoctrinated box.. An openness to perspective, attentiveness to cause & affect, not conforming to dictated involuntary servitude just because a crowd moves. It’s a lifting of systemic veils to promote individual critical thinking.
It’s not socialism!! It’s being privy to social injustices and given the tyrannical attempt of forced mandates; is a good example. GTFOH with that Jab!
Mastermind Move though. I wish him & all involved success.
Something tells me that the corrupt Government will find a way to shut it down. The Establishment (both sides) have already shown that they do not want Trump to gather the patriots in fear of an uprising. The problem they do not see is the uprising WILL happen be it new social network or not!
Last platform Disaster. Stop sending hundreds of requests for donations. You are turning you loyalists off.
Republican party let you down. Trump, #1 president my lifetime.
When will Trump start being honest about thr dangers and deaths for his “very safe vaccine?” I guess people forget he was the dummy who brought it to us at “warp speed!” Anynody that thinks he’s not part of the rich, white, elite cabal, is delusional. I probably should preface this with saying, I’m not a democrat, liberal, or biden supporter.
Who do you think is running this country? The rich.It took us over 200 year to make this country great and it took 9 months to destory it.
Trump is still touting the jabs that he foisted off on us, which are killing people at an enormous rate. He is bragging about bringing them to us! He is so stubborn and hard-headed that he will never admit he was wrong.
He also will never realize that where, in his business dealings, he was #1 and the source of his cohorts paychecks. However, that wasn’t the case in the White House. His people refused to take his orders and do what he told them to do. They back stabbed him and got away with it.Why not? They got paid no matter WHAT they did! He really had no control when it came down to it. Why would we want to watch a repeat of all that bravado and see nothing come of it. . . again?
I actually hope he stays OUT of the 2022 and 2024 elections, IF we even have any. He had his turn and he flubbed at the end. Everything he accomplished is being overturned because it wasn’t solidly set in stone. Also, he’s one of them and he must’ve been threaten the last year of his term because he kept taking 2 steps forward and then retreating until he was too far behind to catch up. Unless something drastic happens to make him change his ways, he’s just another Rhino, seeking the comeback trail.
This what is needed we more of the Trump philosophy God bless the USA and Trump I will sign up thanks for the site it was needed.
