Donald Trump has announced plans to establish his own social media named ‘TRUTH Social.’ It will directly go toe-to-toe with the mighty duo of Facebook and Twitter next year.
The former head of state is determined to challenge the ‘tyranny’ of tech giants who allegedly silence opposing voices in America.
“I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH social and to fight back against big tech,” Trump said in a statement.
“Trump Media & Technology Group’s mission is to create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the “Big Tech” companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.”
Trump added to say that the social network will first launch a beta version in November, before later dropping a full version to the masses in the first quarter of 2022.
Donald Trump’s social media, TRUTH, will be a new product from the former leader’s new Trump Media & Technology Group which has teamed up with Digital World Acquisition Corp.
The announcement of the new platform immediately shared a link that points potential users to signup on a waitlist or make pre-orders on Apple’s App Store.
Donald Trump, who was banned by Facebook and Twitter in early 2021, claims to have been censored while the Taliban remains widely influential on the giant networks.
“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,” he added.
