Trump’s Team Launches GETTR, its New Social Media Platform
Donald Trump’s former spokesman, Jason Miller launched today the former president’s new social network called “GETTR,” which is similar to Twitter, but without the censorship of ideas that harm the left politically and the silencing of conservative ideas.
Trump’s team describes GETTR as an alternative to “Big Tech sites,” which notoriously disallowed incriminating information that was found on the laptop of Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, just before the November 2020 election, while allowing hateful posts, such as ones that are anti-Semitic, to flourish.
The GETTR platform advertised its mission statement as one that “fights cancel culture, promotes common sense, defends free speech, challenges social media monopolies, and creates a true marketplace of ideas.”
After joining Twitter in 2009, with the handle @realDonaldTrump, the former president created a following of more than 88.9 million, until the social media banned him after the Jan. 6 riots on the day Congress counted the electoral votes to certify the election that Trump is still disputing.
Ever since January, when Trump was banned or suspended from most social media platforms, the former the former president has been looking for alternative ways to engage with his base online.
Google and Apple app stores first released GETTR in mid-June, was most recently updated on Wednesday the app, which has been downloaded more than 1,000 times and has been getting positive feedback.
