Donald Trump always complained that social media were a corrupt system to mislead the citizens of the United States of America. For him it was also clear that the Democrats and the Communists were making any effort to undermine his presidency.
He promised ‘his people’ that he would take care that there would come a platform in this world of fake news that would not sell false messages, but would be a place where only the Truth would be told.
Last year he promised he would not wait too long and therefore at the beginning of 2022 there would be a platform for all citizens of the world to find the truth about what is happening in the world. At that time of announcement people could already sign up, I signed up but never got a reply to be able to participate as a member once it got off the ground.
One year after being banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, Donald Trump’s Truth Social app launched on Feb. 21.
In the end, his “free speech” social media platform, TRUTH Social was set to launch on Feb. 21. Part of the popular crusade against “Big Tech tyranny,” TRUTH promises to be an oasis of unrestricted political speech. But the platform’s recent decision to use auto-moderation bots, as well as its oddly restrictive terms of service, suggest Team Trump has perhaps developed a newfound appreciation for both the virtue and necessity of Section 230, the law which enables platforms to choose the content they host.
Devin Nunes, the former GOP representative-turned-Trump Media CEO, said on Wednesday that Truth Social will be the most “family-friendly” social media site on the market. This means it intends to moderate content that offends social conservatives even more heavily than its Big Tech rivals do.
From this, we can understand that such free speech will not be allowed on the network, because they will be under censor machines, working to filter out everything that the eyes are not allowed to see. To this end, TRUTH already enlisted Hive, a Silicon Valley AI company, to auto-moderate “hate speech, spam, pornography, and bullying.” We can question how this is going to work out differently than the same technology used by Facebook and Twitter.
Prior attempts at creating “free speech” platforms, like Parler and Gettr, became so overrun with offensive junk they became practically unusable. The reason that Truth Social can work with Hive and maintain a “family friendly” environment is because Section 230 gives them the freedom to do so without facing liability — the very law that Trump (as well as nearly five dozen bills in Congress) wants to repeal.
Other examples of speech that runs afoul of TRUTH’s terms of service include content that “disparage[s]” Trump Media and content that “annoy[s]” Trump himself. Curiously, TRUTH users may also be banned from the site for “excessive use of capital letters.” TRUTH has the right to make all these rules precisely because of the Section 230 protections Trump tried to nix while president.
I tried to see how and what would come on Truth Social but “Follow the Truth” gave me the notice that
Truth Social is America’s “Big Tent” social media platform that encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology.
At the moment, Truth Social is available for U.S. users only, but rest assured, we are working hard to make it available in your country. When Truth Social becomes available for you, we’ll make an announcement. Stay tuned!
