  • If the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol attack wasn’t divided enough, the disarray is shifting online again, just as it did in January 2021. Partisan politics are not only taking place in Congress, but are increasingly enveloping Corporate America, as well as how citizens work, operate and interact on social media. The latest development can be seen with the launch date of TRUTH Social, which has been listed in Apple’s app store with an expected launch date of Feb. 21 (the date coincides with Presidents’ Day).
  • He said, she said: Former President Donald Trump announced the social network back in October, which would be merged with SPAC Digital World Acquisition (NASDAQ:DWAC). Just like it did in October, the latest launch announcement sent shares of DWAC flying, with the SPAC soaring nearly 20% on Thursday to close at $60. Trump is marketing the platform as an alternative to social media giants Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), both of which banned him on the grounds of inciting the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
  • “I created TRUTH Social and video-on-demand service (TMTG+) to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump said at the time. “We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable. Trump Media & Technology Group’s mission is to create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.”

God I like getter but it’s so similar to other conservative social media. Then we have truth coming out, just so may options. We need one good social media. I hope it’s Truth

Please feel free to tip me for my knowledge

Trump has been able to monetize property and merchandise in the past. Will he be able to build Trump Social into a competing platform? Potentially this has the makings of a game changing power shift.
Can he get millions of those who voted for him to participate in this free speech venue?

Getter, Parler, gab, truth all the same… I hope two merge.

  • "How many Twitter followers Donald Trump had? Trump’s Twitter account had over 77 million followers
  • How many mentions did Trump receive in Twitter? He used to get 10,000 mentions in 20 minutes."

I am keeping a close eye on this, because I am a strong advocate and believer that the free market needs to correct the Zuckerbergs and the Twatters of the world with a serious reckoning. When one looks very deep which I did, then you start to realize how much damage Zuckerberg did in the 2020 election and yet no one challenged him on it. I am not sure what is worse, however I digress because this is about Trump Social media new joint venture and whether or not it will succeed. I would like to think as a result of the 2020 fiasco that there are sometimes downstream consequences that forms in a tidal wave and I certainly hope that this is one of them. Usually however the less attention and spread out over time is when to catch most by surprise and this is how this is rolling out.

I am eager to see the drop in tweets when Trump opens up his site. Pretty sure those numbers will never be released. Remember how Trump played the media when he had his “you’re fired” top rated The Apprentice show.

I have always enjoyed Mark Dice’s commentary when it comes to social media, and in this short video he pretty much hits it on the head. “Gab” has been around for 5 years so why hasn’t Republicans and conservatives alike promoted it? Hmm? Curious question!
