    Trump announces new social media network called 'TRUTH Social'

    Former President Trump on Wednesday announced the upcoming launch of his own social media network, with the new site to be called "TRUTH Social."

    “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," Trump said in a release.

    "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!” he added.

    Of course, "TRUTH" is Trumpese for "PRAVDA" ;)

    I wonder what rules, if any, it will have. It's hard to maintain a propaganda machine without censorship of inconvenient facts.

    Silenced by many major platforms, former President Donald Trump is launching his own social media app.

    Trump Media and Technology Group and Digital World Acquisition Group, which is already listed on the Nasdaq, have entered into a merger to form a new company, chaired by the former president, according to a press release.

    Trump says the group will form "a rival to the liberal media consortium."

    Its first step will be launching a new social media platform called TRUTH Social. A beta version will be available to invited guests in November, according to the release.

    ____________________________

    Finally, a social network exclusively for pro-Trump.

    You will be able to freely discuss your conspiracy theories and alternative facts without ever being challenged by anyone.

    No risk of expulsion, as long as you show total devotion to you know who.

    True freedom.

    You'll have a blast.

    Will they allow you to block Trump? :b0x0rz:

    BTW they aren't really a social media network if they are focused on politics. They are, at best, a sub-reddit

    I didn't read the article, so don't know how long this has been in the works. But I wonder why he asked for his Twitter account back if this was in the works. Meh - nevermind - he likely wanted it so he could promote his new platform. I hope people enjoy it. But I do wonder if this is another way for him to raise funds...

    Trump?

    "TRUTH"?:roflol::bored:

    That is the equivalent of Hitler starting a site called "SHALOM"...

    Will it FLOP like his last attempt?

    Hey Man! Let's Think Positive...

    This is gonna be bigger than Mike Lindell's Epic "Frank" Site (that took the World by storm and eclipsed Twitter in the 1st 24 hours)...

    Remember King Midas? Everything he touched turned to gold.
    Orange Jesus? Everything he touches turns to mold.

    He is a horrible business manager and the only reason he's rich is his daddy left him money, he cheats his contractors and other service providers, sets up fake charities and schools and pretends there is widespread election fraud to keep his cultists sending in their social security money hoping and praying that he can expel the "them" from the country."

    Here we are almost a year out from when he got fired and he just NOW is launching a website? Seriously, when has he ever followed through on *anything*?

    BO's birth certificate
    Hillary in prison
    Super-duper wonderful health insurance plan
    Widespread election fraud

    He overpromises and under delivers constantly. It's really sad. People will go to prison for him, support all his BS and they don't get a damn thing in return except more empty promises.

    His first blog failed which didn't allow for anyone to post except him. It was shuttered when his stupid @ss figured out he can't write more than whatever is the upper limit for Twiiter. Crackhead Lindell bragged about have six hidden servers and a platform that would accommodate A BILLION members. Failed straight out the gate.

    So, hold your horses a minute and let's see if he can bring this to fruition.

    The USSR had a newspaper called Pravda... translation: the truth.

    Trump didn't invent anything.

    Not sure what difference this site will be compared to his others, but those didn't go so well.

    Given the “rules” he has imposed in the past on anyone disagreeing with him this is going to be VERY interesting! It could also open him to all sorts of issues because I can almost guarantee that he ain’t done with insurrections yet.

    Really?

    Upon Launch ONLY Available to "Invited Guests"?:bored:

    Translation - ONLY Available to Trump's Delusional Echo Chamber...

    And, what is going to happen when it is "Open to Anyone" and LW Trump Haters overwhelm the site?
    ^Do people start getting banned?

    Sounds to me like a Ludicrous Trump-Worshipping Echo Chamber...
    ...Destined to become a Total JOKE...

    The "content" should be Comedy Gold...

    I may even set up an account...
    Just to test their tolerance for "Free Speech"...
    ^Sounds like a plan...Looking forward to it...

    Rules don't matter. Only enforcement matters, and enforcement comes at the discretion of those doing the enforcing.

    Check out this site (https://www.reddit.com/r/AntiHateCommunities/). Its a hardcore radical POCupremacist left-wing subreddit where you can regularly find excessive anti-White racism and hate speech and threats to assault, murder, and/or sexually assault right-wingers/White people/Christians/Republicans, along with so many other forms of far-left woketarded bigoted insanity and its all 'against the rules' of not only the sub but Reddit itself. Reddit Admins know about this sub and its 30,000+ active members and they do absolutely nothing about it because they don't want to do anything about it.

    This subreddit is being invaded by literal nazis

    Other hate

    I caught a 7 day ban for a comment trashing on white people. It was a popular comment with about 150 upvotes. The new mods reported it as “promoting hate”. Just be aware comrades, the AHS nazis have infiltrated our safe space and they are actively getting people banned

    What a bunch of weirdos.

    If it’s an IPO, he is raising funds. He probably doesn’t even care if the platform launches. He sells shares in the company and gets hundreds of millions.

    IF the platform launches he can use that to raise more money. But the IPO gives him a big chunk right now.
    He has hundreds of millions in debt coming due soon. He needs cash now. It’s why he is trying to sell his DC hotel.

    Well, to be fair, it will actually be a Nazi platform by then.

    "Stand back and stand by." Maybe that should be PRAVDA Social's motto.

    The Entire place (until it is open to ALL, and not just "Invited Guests") is destined to a pathetic Pro-Trump Echo Chamber.

    It WON'T be (even remotely) relevant UNTIL it is open to ALL.

    At that point, it is going to be inundated with Trump Haters and the Admins will be overwhelmed and it will have to go offline temporarily until the Admins Ban anybody who doesn't worship Trump 24/7.
    Destined to be Complete (Insignificant) Joke.
