WASHINGTON: Former US President Donald Trump has announced plans to re-launch his social network to regain Internet dominance following the banning of Twitter and Facebook in the wake of Capitol’s violent coup.
Truth Social will be owned by the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) and is expected to launch its beta for “invited guests” next month. The group said in a statement that it is already available for pre-order in Apple’s App Store.

The battle for free speech escalated when the dominant social media platforms of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the rest of the world banned the Congress as a punishment for inciting mobs to break up.
Since then, Trump has been looking for ways to retrieve his Internet megaphone, launching several lawsuits against tech giants. In May, he launched a blog called “From Donald J. Trump’s Desk,” which was dubbed a major new outlet – but he took it off the Internet just a month later.
Former Trump aide Jason Miller launched a social network called Gettr earlier this year, but Republicans have not yet joined. Shortly after the announcement of Truth Social, Miller called Trump a “social media fan.”
