The reality is the Trump worshipping morons need to upset someone to be happy. It is why they like Trump, he pisses people off. They can't hate on each other in some bubble network. Nobody sane will join.

Ah, finally a platform for real TRUTH!

Like this...

"the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented)" delivered at his Iowa Rally.

Rock solid facts for rock solid heads!

Wasn't he supposed to do that right out of office? And didn't it have even less success than ------- With Zits, er, I mean Political War Zone?

Perhaps Wrecks could give Schtrump some pointers.

He already tried and failed.

Just a ruse to keep his gullible dupes to continue sending him their $s.

None of which he's used for his stated purpose: proving he won, which is a lie.

What is this, the third, fourth time they've done this?

Will certainly fail like the test.

It's just another money grab that will fail immediately while Trump pockets some cash to put his name with it.

Interesting financial analysis...

Trump's new venture could be peak SPAC

...Former President Trump last night announced plans to launch a digital media network called "Truth Social," and said it would go public via a SPAC called Digital World Acquisition (Nasdaq: DWAC).

What to know: So far, this is a joke. ...

And the article goes on the explain why that view is held...

It does seem to have a Trump University ring to it...

Mastodon's Founder Says Trump's New Social Network Is Just Mastodon
'Truth Social', which will launch officially later in the year, is seemingly using Mastodon's codebase without credit.

Dotard even has to gaslight with the name of his newest effort at another soon to be failed social media platform. It will be a good place to monitor Reichwing extrmeism; I'm sure the FBI and other law enforcement entities will be watching.

Investors are pulling out because they weren't told Trump was directly involved.

Looks like the orange ----------- touch is gone!

Mastodon basically says use our code for free but attribute us, and change our code all you want but it must remain available (open source). Its really simple, but Trump isn't doing that, which is copyright theft and plagiarism, which sounds about right. Can these people do anything without scheming and grifting?

On a side note: I love open-source, where workers truly control the production. I've integrated it fully into my workflow, with the proper attributions of course.

If you're pretending that Trump has any insight into the front end or backend operations of the social media company, that is hilarious.
Whoever made the choice of Mastodon, versus attempting to create a bespoke service from scratch, actually made a good decision.

A different view...

Florida man accused of breaking Mastodon's open-source license with botched social network launch

...A Florida man has been accused of breaking the copyleft license of Mastodon by running an online instance of the software without providing its source code as required.

And not only that, the real-estate baron and wannabe tech tycoon has been told he has a month to fall in line with the fine print or put himself potentially at risk further action....

The aforementioned Palm Beach businessman, known for his failed casino, discontinued line of steaks, and a recent stint in public office, chairs an online media group that this week promised to launch a social network for selected users next month. A wider rollout is expected in the new year following a period of beta testing, apparently.

The web service, which alleges it wants to foster -- honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology, -- has curiously in its terms-of-use banned one of its supremo's most favorite things in the whole wide world: "excessive use of capital letters."...
