I’m sure this one will be every bit as successful as his last one.

Trump fundamentally doesn’t understand social media and neither do any of these idiots trying to make alternative platforms. What conservatives like about social media is fighting liberals on it. If you make a site that only appeals to conservatives there’s no liberals to fight and therefore no fun.
Yes, and it limits the reach of their propaganda. No one pays any attention to these niche right wing platforms. The entire point of Trump on Twitter was his reach. And the platform's massive user base is mostly the thing that makes what these people say even remotely newsworthy.

So I wonder how long you last on this "free speech" platform if you say bad things about Trump on it.

I should go set up an account and try it out.

If the Market buys in. My Pillow Guy will probably lose everything by controlling all the Shares in circulation or something.
Trump might be nice on Lindel, and might just take the pillow company over. He probably would keep Lindel in the advertising department, after all Lindel is showing no signs of struggle when it comes to recruiting new Trumpanzees.

ROFL! - "Truth" - Trump calling his site "Truth anything" is just him being his usual troll. Hey .... Why not be on the up and up and call it "Lies" - It’s not like that will deter any likely subscribers. I assume he wanted to call it “Pravda”, but Putin sued him over trademark infringement.

Predictably enough, this "TRUTH" (lol) Social in its TOS prohibits using all-caps and making fun of Loser Donald isn’t even supposed to launch until next year, but the signup page is already live, and a pair of merry pranksters have claimed the accounts “donaldjtrump” and “mikepence”. Free speech my ass.


It’s “free speech” as in “speech free of any consequences for me, but everyone else will get their asses banned if they step out of line”, in the same way that “religious freedom” means freedom for "very specific" religions.

I’m guessing this will go the same way as Parler and Frank:

Step 1) Massive technical issues;
Step 2) Massive troll invasion;
Step 3) Massive data breach; and then
Step 4) Site is overwhelmed by scammers, spammers and porn.

Actually We’ll need to add steps 1a, 2a, 3a, and 4a, which are all just “Trump steals more money from old and gullible people.”

Loser Donald's very own "Free Speech Money Farm".
The only thing that can save Trump's new social website is if people treat it like Tumblr.

Trump just indirectly stated the name of who will be his VP running mate on that slide.
TMTG 2024 means = Trump - Majorie Taylor Greene 2024. This is worst than we thought.

God, I hope so, she'd be a worse (or better depending on you point of view) choice than Sarah Palin was for John McCain.

The population that still listens to AM radio is also disappearing. Kinda like Rush.

Every nutball conspiracy theory or extremist site or group uses the word "truth" or some variation of it. If they are using any variation of "truth" in their name, they aren't telling any of it.

It will probably be Hacked before they put it up. Let him waste his money.
Do you think for one second that The Donald would invest HIS money in it-or anything? His preferred method of operation is to use other people's money (his gullible donors line up to give him cash) and to stiff the vendors anyway.

I dunno, Lindell might object to having Trump's fat mug plastered all over the pillows and pillow cases. Meh, maybe his ego might be able to cope with having both of them buck nekkid posed in a sexually suggestive embrace tastefully emblazoned on their products as special edition collector items.

I see this as one more tool for the FBI to "keep an eye on". ;)

Also, I could have so much fun with this. Sign up "Biden Juan" or "Ridin W Biden" LOL

this entire site just screams Trump. Some of the terms of service include things they’ve called unenforceable in court. They stipulate you can’t say anything bad about them and the best part? They call the software proprietary. All they did was take mastodon, not give them any credit which they are required to do to use it, then say it was all their own.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/21/trump-linked-spac-shares-soar-more-than-40percent-on-news-of-social-media-deal.html

DWAC shares are up 275% today. Someone made a killing today. The trading volume on DWAC warrants was extremely high yesterday. Insider trading high. So someone bought huge number of warrants on DWAC during the trading day yesterday knowing this SPAC merger news was about to break. 100% illegal but of course the SEC is going to turn blind eye. SEC is disgusting and useless organization. Might as well dissolve it as it just wastes taxpayer dollars and only protects the short sellers and the corrupt.

Extremely smart move by Trump and his associates to cash in on this free money SPAC. They're going to make billions on this deal and Trump will now be legitimate billionaire because of this SPAC. This company will fail but not before Trump and his friends pocket millions leaving retail holding the bag. Well done.
For some reason, I'm not surprised that Trump would be involved in a blatant pump and dump with insider trading.
