Former President Trump on Wednesday announced the upcoming launch of his own social media network 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,” he declared. A beta launch of the site for “invited guests” is expected in November, with a full launch in the first quarter of 2022. The app appears to be the first project of the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which will list on the Nasdaq through a merger with Digital World Acquisition Group. The new company, which lists Trump’s private membership club Mar-A-Lago as its address, will be chaired by the former president. It wants to rival Facebook and Twitter.
The Trump Media & Technology Group also announced plans to launch a subscription-based video service called TMTG+ that will feature “non-woke” programming. For those who register online to receive emails from TMTG, the terms of service require that users sign away their right to file a class action. “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. ” Trump said.
