Former United States President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday the launch of his own social network under the name ‘Truth Social’, with which he seeks to regain his presence on digital platforms after being expelled from Twitter and Facebook.
The new platform will be fully operational in the first quarter of 2022, but will have a beta version for “guests” in November this year, according to a statement from Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), a company created to promote this initiative and with the one that the ex-president tries to do “in the face of the tyranny of ‘big tech'”.
“We live in a world where the Taliban have a large presence on Twitter, but their favorite US president has been silenced. This is unacceptable,” he stressed in this regard, reports the US media ‘The Hill’.
In addition, it has been advanced that TMTG will go public after reaching an agreement with another firm called Digital World Acquisition Corporation. In addition, Trump’s company has plans to launch a subscription video service called ‘TMTG +’, which will include entertainment programming.
Trump was vetoed by major social media companies for his role in inciting the assault on the United States Capitol on January 6.
Twitter permanently vetoed Trump, while Facebook announced earlier this year that the former president would be suspended from the platform for at least two years, being able to rejoin in 2023 if the public safety risk had decreased. .
In an attempt to regain contact with his public through the digital world, after leaving the White House he managed a blog similar to Twitter, but closed it approximately a month later. Also, in early October, the former president asked a federal judge in the United States to force Twitter to reestablish his account.
