Former President of the United States, Donald Trump, has revealed plans to launch a new social media platform, called ‘TRUTH Social’.
This was made known in a statement on Wednesday by the Trump Media and Technology Group, a newly established company that is planning a merger with the Digital World Acquisition Corporation.
The statement, which also announced the establishment of TMTG, stated that the mission of the group “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, who is the Chairman of the group, said in the statement, “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 favourite 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!”
The new social platform is currently available for pre-order in the Apple App Store. However, it plans to begin its beta launch for invited guests in November 2021. A nationwide rollout is also expected in the first quarter of 2022.
