“I created Truth Social and TMTG to stand up against the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump said in a statement.
The social network, which will be available for beta launch next month and widely available for use in the first quarter of 2022, is the first of three phases in the company’s plans, followed by a subscription video on-demand service called TMTG Plus.

A spokesman for Trump confirmed the contents of the TMTJ press release on condition of anonymity.
On the other hand, Donald Trump’s spokesperson Liz Harrington also tweeted that press release.
The former president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., told Fox News in an interview that “big technology companies have long been suppressing conservative voices.”
“My father signed a merger agreement that will eventually form the Trump Media and Technology Group and Truth Social,” he said.
In May this year, former US President Donald Trump introduced a new section on his website.
The ‘social media platform’ was basically a blog with a Twitter-like style and a long blog to be posted by Donald Trump, but he canceled the project a month later.
The former US president’s accounts were permanently banned by Twitter and Facebook on January 8 after a riot by his supporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, which killed five people, including a police officer. ۔
SnapChat also locked the former president’s account, while his YouTube account was also suspended.
In the four years of his presidency, Donald Trump has been very active on Twitter.
For a long time, the company did not take action on posts that violated Twitter’s community norms, but added warning labels to posts related to the election and the Corona virus.
