Donald Trump Has His Own Social Media Platform?

After being banned from virtually all social media networks, former United States President Donald Trump will launch his own social media platform, TRUTH Social. According to Trump, the goal of his new app is to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech” and “rival the liberal media consortium.”

Following the January 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol, Trump was censored and banned on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for making false claims about the 2020 presidential election. Trump and other conservative social media users claim that big tech companies work to suppress conservative voices. In response, Trump began teasing a new social media that would exemplify these voices.

Back in July, Trump sued platforms such as Twitter and Google for allegedly censoring his posts. These companies have seemingly upheld their bans against Trump, but there is a slight chance that the reason for his ban could be revisited.

Concerning the release of Trump’s new app, he 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.” 

The beta launch of TRUTH Social will begin its rollout in November, with its full release coming sometime next year. Interested users can sign up for updates about the app on his website,, in which they intend to compete against Amazon’s cloud service and Google Cloud eventually.

The platform emphasizes its role in open and honest communication; however, ridiculing the site is prohibited in the app’s terms of service. Users must accept the terms and agreements, agreeing to not “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the site.” 

He said, “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.”

Along with the launch of his social media platform, it was announced that the Trump Media & Technology Group entered an agreement with Digital World Acquisition Corp. to become a publicly-traded company. The TMTG group also announced that they would introduce a subscription video service, TMTG+, led by America’s Got Talent producer Scott St. John. The streaming service plans to include television series that compete with the service offered by Netflix, as well as news reports “not swayed by party politics.”
