Trump announces launch of his own social media platform

Former President Trump has announced the launch of his own social media platform called Truth Social.

According to the website, a beta version will be available to invited guests in November and a nationwide rollout is expected in the first quarter of 2022.

The app is available for pre-order in Apple’s App Store. 

Truth Social says its mission is to “create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley.”

“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump said in a statement.

“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced,” he continued. “This is unacceptable.”
