What Is Truth Social? Another Addition To Trump’s Social Autonomy!

Have you heard about Truth Social Media? Do you know what is Truth Social? Truth Social is created by TMTG. Trump created the Truth Social platform. But, Why? Here we will discuss all the questions that come up to your mind regarding Truth Social.

The former US President Donald Trump has declared a new social media app as an alternative to Twitter and Facebook. This app will be launched in February 2022 on iOS devices. This new media company of Trump is assisted by the former US Rep. Devin Nunes.

On the basis of screenshots in the App Store listing, we can say that Truth Social is a lot like Twitter. The profile page that I have seen in one of the screenshots is exactly similar to that of Twitter. Moreover, the posts have icons where we can easily retweet, reply and share them as well. This app is yet to be launched and to your knowledge, till now it does not have a registration page.

The Truth Social platform is made so that people can have honest, free, and open global conversations about political issues. So, let’s get to know what is Truth Social and how to download Truth Social in detail. 

What Is Truth Social?

What Is Truth Social

As spokeswoman Liz Harrington declared, Trump has made his own social media platform, Truth Social. Moreover, it states that the Truth Social will stand up to the dictatorship of the Big Tech.

On this, Trump tweeted that we live in a world where Twitter is occupied with the Taliban and still Trump is silent. This company will be registered under the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). Likewise, you can also pre-order Truth Social on the Apple App Store.

In 2021, a blog was launched on Trump’s existing website. However, that was rejected because the page could not attract many active users. Hence, Truth Social is a hope that it will work better than Trump’s other sites even though Trump has competition from his very own supporters.

Orthodox and conservative voices on the platform that are already present are performing really well. So it is not clear how many Trump fans are willing to shift to a new platform once it gets launched.

How Does Truth Social Work?

Now, that you know what is Truth Social, let’s understand how this social platform works!

The website of Truth Social has described the new platform as a “Big Tent” social media service. Here you can have an open, honest and free global conversation about political issues. However, the big tent is referred to as a metaphor that truth society will be performing with so that it can discuss political issues. It is described as a big outdoor event tent that is present at your best friend’s wedding. 

So who all are there in the tent? 

There are many families from all over the US and the rest of the world. All the families are together and having a really good time. Moreover, they even share their own opinions of the world. Though we may not agree with each other, at least we welcome all kinds of opinions without being biased.

If we talk about the day-to-day functions of Truth Social then it seems to work just like any other social media platform works. You have to sign up then you can join the conversation and can share your opinion by posting TRUTH or Re-Truth. Moreover, you can even post video links, news stories, photos so that you can chat with your friends and families from all over the world.

Why Did Twitter And Facebook Ban Donald Trump?

Donald Trump was banned from many social media platforms after he made some unjustified allegations of election fraud. After his polling day, Trump used his social media account to make useless comments about the presidential election which according to him is done by fraud.

Moreover, he continuously would state online and in a speech that the election had been stolen from him. There were many supporters that attacked the capital that day and five people also died in the violence. Some of them that were charged in connection with the riot stated that the violence was encouraged by Trump.

On 8th January Trump was permanently blocked from Twitter to avoid any further encouragement of violence. Likewise, Snapchat permanently banned Trump and he was suspended from Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitch as well.

That is when decided to come up with his own social platforms like Gettr and Truth Social.
