Trump Launches New Social Media Platform To Rival Facebook, Twitter, Others
The former president of the United States of America has announced the launch of his new social media platform called Truth social.
Trump’s media company, Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) joined forces with Digital World Acquisition Corp to become a publicly listed company with a potential net worth of about $1.7 billion.
Trump revealed that Truth Media would become functional in early 2022 and would be competing with other platforms like Facebook and Twitter which Naija News recalls were the platforms the former president was banned from.
He went ahead to reveal that he would be creating ”subscription video on demand service” called TMTG+ to also compete with Youtube.
”I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump wrote in the announcement Wednesday night, October 20.
”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.”
Trump further stated that the reason he was making such a decision was to create a conservative media as opposed to the social media platforms that propagated liberal activism against his administration and also in the 2020 political campaign.
”I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon,” Trump added. ”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!”
