The community, which from the Apple App Retailer screengrabs appears suspiciously like a clone of Twitter, will open to “invited customers” subsequent month and be rolled out to the general public early subsequent 12 months. The app is seemingly a part of a wider media community known as Trump Media & Know-how Group (TMTG) that goals to tackle the “liberal media consortium”.

“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to face as much as the tyranny of Huge Tech,” Trump stated in a press release. “We stay in a world the place the Taliban has an enormous presence on Twitter, but your favourite American President has been silenced. That is unacceptable.”

Trump’s plans for TMTG are extraordinarily bold. Not solely does he wish to tackle Fb and Twitter, he desires to disrupt Disney, Apple, Netflix, Google and Amazon. How precisely is he going to do this? Good query. The 22-page firm presentation outlining TMTG’s imaginative and prescient is wealthy with hyperbole, however low on element. Right here’s the gist:

In a single slide they have a look at how many individuals hearken to podcasts and watch Netflix; from there they extrapolate that TMTG can get “doubtlessly lots of of hundreds of thousands of customers”. Then they provide up on maths altogether and put a reasonably image of one thing that appears a bit just like the Earth, however definitely isn’t the Earth as we all know it, on a slide with the phrase “large” over it. TMTG’s goal, this slide proclaims, is to construct a “non-cancellable” world neighborhood.

Undecided how that works because the likes of Fox Information and Information Max will technically be its competitors, however I’m positive somebody someplace has a really crafty plan.

TMTG’s investor presentation pitches Reality Social as a “massive tent” social media platform that can unite folks of each political ideology. If you dig into the platform’s phrases of service, nevertheless, issues get just a little extra sophisticated. Customers should agree to not “annoy” any of the staff and to not “disparage, tarnish, or in any other case hurt, in our opinion, us and/or the location”. So don’t be impolite about Trump, mainly. Customers should additionally comply with chorus from “extreme use of capital letters”. OK TRUTHERS!

As soon as this information broke, DWAC’s inventory surged 400% and it appears prone to be the subsequent meme inventory.
