The Facebook and Twitter barred Former US President, Donald Trump, is set to launch his very own version of a social media application.
Trump who had been expelled from Facebook and Twitter for his role in inciting the Jan 6 Capitol insurrection could name the new app as "Truth Social".
The app will be the work of the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).
In a statement, the former US President said, "We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced... This is unacceptable..."
This will be Trump's second attempt at a social site. The first being the blog on his personal website which was dropped owing to dismal views.
According to AP, TMTG's launch could be a soft-launch in November. The service could have features such as video-on-demand, podcasts, and feature entertainment programming in addition to news.
TMTG is also hoping to compete against the likes of Netflix, Disney+, CNN. In the long term TMTG aspires to provide cloud computing and payments services. The company has also indicated its plans of going public.
