Former President Donald Trump, whose accounts on social media platforms have been suspended following protests in recent months, has promised to open his own social media platform. Keeping his promise, Trump launched part of his website.
The site, which is a WordPress blog, resembles the general version of Twitter. But right now, he’s only going on his way in a blog where Trump’s comments are published.
Although the platform officially launched on Tuesday ( May 4th), it contains posts dating back to March 24. The former President will then be able to communicate directly with his supporters. But it’s unclear how that will work.
Those who wish to register on the site can post messages on the platform via their e-mails and phone numbers. Users will also be able to share posts served by Donald Trump on Twitter and Facebook. The option to explode on Twitter is not working effectively at the moment. But Facebook allows people to share Trump’s posts.
A Twitter spokesperson told TheVerge that sharing content from materials on the website, in general, would not be allowed unless it complied with Twitter rules, but there was no comment from the Facebook front yet.
The site’s launch, meanwhile, came a day before the Facebook Oversight Board convened to decide whether Trump should be allowed to return to other social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Trump’s account was suspended by Facebook and Twitter following a raid on the U.S. Capitol in January that left five people dead.
