Truth Social (also amplified as TRUTH Social) is a social media outlet created by Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). TMTG is an American agency and technology company founded in October 2021 by former U.S. President Donald Trump. The Truth Social outlet is a free and open-source circulated social network. This is owned by the former president of America Donald Trump itself.
Former President of the U.S.A Donald Trump raised an outlook of creating a new social media platform after he was prohibited from Facebook and Twitter in 2021, after the Capitol Riot of January 6th.
Trump Media & Technology Group’s mission is to develop an opponent to the liberal media association and fight back against the “Big Tech” organizations of Silicon Valley. It has used its unilateral strength to silence opposing voices in America.
“We live in a world where the Taliban have a huge presence on Twitter, but your favourite US president has been silenced. That is unacceptable,” Trump said in a written statement contained in a press release. “I am excited to send my first truth to the Truth Society very soon. TMTG was founded with the mission of giving everyone a voice. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on True Social and fighting Big Tech soon.”
In May 2021, Trump inaugurated “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump”, a web page where he posted short tweet-like statements. The USA announced in early June that it was shut down after less than a month. Trump’s senior assistant Jason Miller ensured that it would not be coming back.
The service was inaugurated on 21 February 2022. It has undergone many drastic and continuously scaling complications from the advent, supervising a lower than believed user base. It is accessible to limited users in the United States.
