Is Donald Trump getting into the Social Media game? Will it be a success?After being banned from Twitter and Facebook, he works on his own social media platform, TRUTH. Trump announced the formation of TRUTH Social on Wednesday night. Posts will be called TRUTHs, and Trump said he is "excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech."
On Wednesday, Trump said, "We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced." Donald Trump states this is the "first major rival to 'Big Tech,'"
TRUTH Social's terms of service make it clear that the platform not only intends to moderate content just like Twitter and Facebook but reserves the right to remove users for any reason it deems necessary. The terms go on to say that if TRUTH Social decides to terminate or suspend your account, the platform may also sue you, something that Twitter and Facebook's terms don't say. According to Times, any user who criticizes Trump or the site can be kicked off the platform. Most notably, the site's list of prohibited activities includes the "excessive use of capital letters," a quirk that Trump became known for on Twitter and that no other major social network specifically bans.
The TRUTH Social app will be open to invitees in November and to the public in the first months of 2022. Many people have already stated that they believe TRUTH's social media platform will not be a hit. The reason for this is because Donald Trump is no longer president and many people do not like the terms of services with the app. They also state that he is making his version of Twitter, which they do not like. Only time will tell if the app is a success or not.
