Former US President Donald Trump‘s company, Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) announced on Twitter on Wednesday the launch of a new social media platform “TRUTH Social,” developed to become “a rival of the liberal media.”
Another mission of the project, according to the message sent to journalists, is to “fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.”
The app is expected to go live in beta for invited guests in November 2021. And a nationwide rollout is planned for the first quarter of 2022, according to a news release. Currently, it is said to be available in the Apple App Store for pre-order.
“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 is quoted in the statement as saying.
