Fox News reports that Jason Miller, one of former President Donald Trump’s closest advisors, just launch a new social media site.
The big question, of course, is whether this is the site the Trump is going to be joining. And, the short answer is that we just don’t know. There will be more on this in a minute.
This is the name of the social media platform that Miller has launched. As Miller explained in a statement, he purposely launched GETTR on Independence Day.
“GETTR is a direct challenge to the social media oligarchs from Silicon Valley, and what better day to declare independence from their woke tyranny than July 4th?” Miller wrote.
There are many differences between Miller’s new site and other social media sites. GETTR, for example, will allow users to post longer messages containing up to 777 characters. It will also allow users to post clearer pictures, to edit videos, and to post videos up to three minutes in length.
But, more significantly, Miller said that GETTR “will not cancel people for their political opinions.” Rather, Miller says that GETTR is “for people of all political stripes from around the world.”
Former President Donald Trump was kicked off of mainstream social media sites following the January 6th riot that took place at the Capitol. Big Tech justified this censorship on the grounds that it was necessary to prevent further violence.
For months now, the question has been how will Trump make his return to social media. Trump made it clear that he will return, we just didn’t know how he would return, and we still don’t.
Not too long ago, Miller announced that Trump would be creating his own social media platform. Miller, though, has made it clear that Trump did not provide funding for GETTR. And, at the moment, it is not even clear if Trump is going to be joining GETTR.
Miller told Fox, “We certainly hope President Trump will join the platform, but I’ll leave it to him to make decisions on what he’s doing.”
Miller added that “President Trump has a number of different options he’s considering.”
Miller, though, did not reveal what those options are, which means that, for the time being, Trump supporters are going to be left in the dark as to his social media future.
