The most prominent social media sites of the world do not seem to quite like Trump supporters. People worldwide have alleged popular social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram of suppressing free speech. People believe that these sites have a very selective policy where they conveniently remove the content according to the government and its orders; while believing in this theory is all to oneself, no one can deny that popular social media sites do not allow free speech. There are just too many community guidelines, and you can truly be yourself while using these sites. You need to lower your tone, suppress your thoughts while using such sites, and there is probably not a lot of fun in this.

To support free speech and battle the big social media houses, Jason Miller has launched Gettr. Getter is supposed to be a free speech social media platform; this platform is ‘cancel free,’ as miller states. With Gettr, people will be allowed to express their thoughts and ideas more freely. There will still be community guidelines and control, but that will be very limited. Gettr Social Media platform was initially launched for beta testing, and the public version was launched on July 4, 2021.

  • The title is : How to use gettr?
    And the only answer you give is: it’s like Twitter!
    Very helpful for people who never used Twitter!
    Dear friend, why not writing a small true manual, explaining people how to use it, step by step, with all needed details?
    Many thanks and regards

    • Right! I’ve never used Twitter and this app is quite different from fb. I can’t see posts of people I follow, can’t share with my “friends” specifically and can I share to my feed on fb or only to fb groups? Lots of practical questions that this article does not answer

  • GETTR site has remarkably poor instructions, assistance, detailing of requirements, and it has taken several weeks to simply get the registration finalized. Uploading media has no active process internally. Still it does talk about itself and promise the world. The help system made no communications nor did it add any response messages to repeated requests, not even an automated response reply over those weeks of waiting and efforts made by a new user.

  • Are you automatically notified when someone likes or comments on your post, or if someone follows you? I’m on Android.

  • When I open Twitter, a bunch of conversations show on my screen. This doesn’t happen on Gettr. How do I get conversations to show?

  • Nothing works on mine, right now it sucks. I even had to delete the app because it said my email was incorrect, I have had the same email for about 25 years. I can not read comments, I can not post comments. I have no idea how to work it

  • Hi there!
    Is it free to register with a website name?
    For presentation and about the website and upcoming events.

  • Maybe the confusion is because this page comes up in searches for us who have refused to join twitter and you label this page as how to use gettr when you should have listed it as “how to install gettr” which practically everyone, including those who don’t use twitter, knows how to do. How about an instructions for actually using gettr and posting comments? Like when to use # or @ or whatever else we non-twitter users don’t know about?

  • Is there a “Follow” button to click if you want to follow someone on the Website not on the APP.. it seems like the Website doesn’t have a “Follow” button.

  • Is there a place on GETTR to find new people? I must not be seeing it. There are a few recommended profiles but no page where I can just go and view posts from people I’m not already following, and see if I want to follow them. The News section is just headlines. There’s no feed of everyone’s posts? So I can only follow people whose profiles I learn about on other platforms, basically.
