Trump to launch new social media platform "TRUTH Social"

Proving once again that Republicans are masters of naming things the opposite of what they are.

Also--let's be honest--this will likely flop in the first month just like his last pathetic attempt. How sad it must be for a 75 year old to so desperately crave the constant adoration of total strangers.

And what do we hear from Dems? Crickets. Trump is dominating the news coverage again ahead of his 2024 victory. The Dems are in total disarray, due to lack of leadership and rogue senators.

Only seven minutes before the Trump Trolls (R1) show up. Impressive work!

Trump is the epitome of False Advertising.

How about that, fellow Democrats, is that simple enough?

Can we run with that?

Can we coalesce in order to drive this one. concept. home?

Hammer this into the heads of every American?

DONALD TRUMP IS THE EPITOME OF FALSE ADVERTISING!

[bold] As many in the media have already pointed out, this is unlikely to ever get off the ground [/bold]

Rather, it is a way for a Very Broke Trump to get access to a NASDAQ listed company and raise money that way for what is essentially a sort of SPAC

^^Or as the New York Times so slyly put it in their subhead "A merger could give the former president access to nearly $300 million in cash — and perhaps a new platform."

"Perhaps" being the key word.

(See what they did there)

More shade from the NYT article at R7

[quote] The details of Mr. Trump’s latest partnership were vague. The statement he issued was reminiscent of the kind of claims he made about his business dealings in New York as a real estate developer. It was replete with high-dollar amounts and superlatives that could not be verified.

R1- We hear a lot from Democrats just not on the MSM. Trump could shoot someone on 5th Ave. and the media would ask how Biden and Deblasio allowed it to happen.

R1, "ahead of his 2024 victory"? Did you keep a straight face typing this shit?

I am sure that his social media platform will be just as successful as Trump U and Trump Steaks.

And his effort to fight the 2020 election results. BTW, what happened to all of that $$ that he raised for that?

His supporters are so fucking dumb.

by Anonymousreply 13October 21, 2021 2:52 PM

I'm not sure it'll ever get started, let alone be up long enough to suffer a collapse.

The timing of the announcement just before the holidays makes me suspect he's hoping everyone will forget all about this in 90 days, because all he's looking for is a way to get cash.

'TRUTH Social' sounds like a Baptist leaflet announcing a local get-together. But not nearly so appealing.

I was about to ask if this is the one that got hacked before it even opened, but r16 was on it already! Hilarious. This thing will never see the light of day.

I'm also absolutely certain that the "History Tour" he's doing with O'Reilly starting in December will get quietly cancelled in the next few weeks.

"an open, free, and honest global conversation " with Terms of Use stating "The site’s terms of use include a clause that says users can’t “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site.”

while appropriating an open-source software without attributing it, or offering the open source, and claiming that all code they use is proprietary (a violation of public license, Truth.social will be sued)

Not seeing 'truth' and 'openness' here but then I am not one to attempt to commoditize and commercialize a free, open-source platform

It's not like rabid mouthpieces don't abound in commoditized spaces and forums already. Also, at least 95% of instance admins and moderators will block the instance if it launches. The "free, open conversation" will again regress to troll fights and echo chambers.

He's forgotten the most important thing about a Social Media Platform. ADVERTISING. Other than the Poor Boys and a hand full of Repugs, no company is going to be buying up millions in ad space on that shit platform. That's the whole point of those platforms.

by Anonymousreply 47October 22, 2021 1:48 AM

No R47

The whole point of Trump's platform is to align with a NASDAQ listed company so he can raise money for the platform without ever having to actually launch it.

R44, the pics of him advertising this new platform are hilarious. When did tRump lose 100lbs, suddenly become 25 years younger, develop smooth wrinkle free skin, and grow out a full head of hair? He's Photoshopped within an inch of his life in these.
