Trump “Truth Social Media” Flops?

Trump launches TRUTHSocial media platform to compete with Twitter

Before and immediately after former President Donald Trump ended his term on January 20, 2021, his social media accounts were deplatformed by Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and others.

At the same time, thousands of conservative accounts were also deactivated in connection with Trump’s fraud claim, among others, such as allegedly spreading fake news.

Donald Trump was still a sitting POTUS when Twitter and Facebook locked his account on January 7, 2021. He posted a video praising his supporters, who also claimed voter fraud, which these networks flagged as dangerous.

TRUTH Social platform

As a result, he vowed to sue Big Brother Tech” and launch his own social media platform. Since October 2021, Trump’s “Truth Social platform,” or TRUTHSocial, used an open-source hosting software Mastodon.

Trump Media Technology Group

Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) operates the platform. It will be available on Apple App Store and Android beginning February 21, 2022, the annual Presidents’ Day celebration in the U.S.A.

TruthSocial “retruths” competing with Twitter

Truth Social is like Twitter, where users can post and share “retruths.” It also features “truth feed” and other sharing options and embedding.

TRUTH Social and YouTube’s competitor, Rumble

TMTG partnered with Rumble on December 14, 2021. The video platform is a serious and growing competitor and alternative to YouTube. It is supported mainly by Trump supporters who dislike how Google-owned YouTube discriminates and cancels conservative content.

However, people hard a difficult time creating accounts. Most mainstream media outlets did not cover the launch, nor did conservatives pundits push it on their platforms.

Trump’s Truth Social Media seemed to have flopped. In March 2022, Elon Musk hinted at the possibility of creating a powerful platform that will compete with Twitter.
