Donald Trump to launch his own social media app after Twitter and Facebook ban

Donald Trump is readying to launch his own social media app early next year, after he was kicked off Twitter and Facebook.

The ex-US President says he will launch the app TRUTH Social which he says will ‘stand up to Big Tech’ companies, like the ones he’s already barred from using.

It will be created through a new company formed by a merger of the Trump Media and Technology Group and a special acquisition company.

It is expected to be released early in 2022.

Trump said in a statement about the launch: “We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favourite American President has been silenced.

“This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all.

“I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech.”

The social network, set for an initial ‘beta’ launch next month before a full rollout in early 2022, is the first of three stages in the company’s plans.

It will be followed by a subscription video-on-demand service called TMTG+ that will feature entertainment, news and podcasts, according to a news release.
