Former President Donald Trump is launching a new social media platform in Q1 of 2022. According to his son Donald Jr., the Trump Media and Technology Group and Truth Social will aim to “counter censorship” and “give a voice to all.” This should be interesting.
Even liberals can see that conservative voices have been muted by Big Tech. Twitter even had the power to completely ban a then sitting US president from its platform. Twitter and other social media sites continually remove all content that does not follow the larger agenda. The internet has become our largest source for obtaining information, but the public at large is only informed on the popular view. Our knowledge and voices should not be suppressed.
