The US former President, Donald Trump on Wednesday announced his plan to launch his own social media platform called ‘Truth Social’.
This comes after he was been banned from several other popular social media sites.
In a press release, the Trump Media and Technology Group said it has entered a merger with Digital World Acquisition Corp. to become a publicly listed company, with Trump as its chairman.
“I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all,” Trump said in the statement.
Donald Trump was banned from popular social media platforms like, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, after his supporters stormed the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, over concerns that his continued presence on social media would incite more violence.
YouTube said its ban would be lifted after the “risk of violence” decreases, Facebook said Trump could come back to the platform at the soonest in 2023 and Twitter said its ban would be permanent.
