Former President Donald Trump plans to launch his own social media platform in 2022. The new social media platform will be called TRUTH Social, it is an attempt on the part of his supporters to fight back against the Big Tech companies of Silicon Valley. According to them, they have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.
Many of Trump’s supporters believe the social media was biased against conservative voices in 2018. Back then a group of his supporters even sued Twitter, Facebook, and Google. The various social platforms were accused of breaking antitrust laws and violating their First Amendment rights by conspiring to suppress conservative viewpoints. Though the case was dismissed by the court a few times.
Research conducted by a New York University earlier this year suggests there was no evidence of conservative bias on the world’s most popular social networks. During that time Instagram was bugged months ahead of the US Presidential Elections that favored Trump content over Biden’s.

It is true, however, that Facebook and Twitter banned Trump from their platforms following the January 6th US Capitol riots. Twitter found his tweets violating their platform’s policies. According to Twitter, his tweets “must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence…”
In a bid to get his Twitter account back, Trump sued the platform, arguing that the ban violates his First Amendment rights. Trump in a statement said, “We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced.”
Trump plans the TRUTH Social beta launch in November for invited guests. While he and his team are expecting to roll out the social media app for the public in the first quarter of 2022.
