On Saturday, March 27, former Presidential campaign manager Corey Lewandowski declared that former US President Donald Trump would be developing a social media app that has no cancel culture compared to other apps. The application claims to possess all types of freedom, When will the app be available, and how will it be monitored?
Trump's own social media app
According to Lewandowski, the company plans to launch the platform within a three to four-month window in Newsweek's interview.
He also stated, the app's purpose is to use it as a platform to facilitate effective communication between him and the people.
The platform being developed by Trump is not going to rely on Amazon or Amazon's server infrastructure. It will be completely constructed from scratch, giving him a great deal of control over distribution and participation. This is meant positively, and it is something the former President has been working on for a long time now.
Jason Miller, another longtime adviser and spokesperson for the former President made comments to BusinessInsider that after being banned by Twitter, Trump would start his own social media network that will offer "tens of millions" of people access.
Why is Trump making an app
In the early days of January, Former President Donald Trump's tweets were blocked in many countries worldwide due to the recent riots on the U.S. Capitol grounds.
After Trump shared two tweets that appeared to violate the company's ban against glorifying violence, the company suspended him.
Those two tweets should be examined in light of heightened political and media scrutiny in the country, as well as the pattern of behavior this account has been displaying in recent weeks, Twitter added.
Because there is no established venue in which Trump can address his supporters, he has taken it upon himself to create his own.
In an interview for Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe's podcast The Truth, Mr. Trump said, "We're working on building our own platform that you'll be hearing about very soon."
Straitstimes reports that there will be a chance for people to share their opinions freely without being afraid of repercussions or cancellation when the app is released to the public later this year.
"What Big Tech has shown is that they are going to throw you out if you don't agree with their philosophy," Lewandowski said.
He also exclaimed that they were going to have a platform that will allow the Former President's message of America First to be put out to everyone and an opportunity for other citizens to weigh in and communicate while not fearing reprisal or cancellation.
The administration fails to mention how they will moderate anyone that chooses to engage in violent attacks against the public or how they will do so.
