How Does Truth Social Media Works?
Truth Social media works just like Twitter, but it has removed several features such as polls and bookmark options. Users can make posts called “Truths” just like tweets and share other users’ posts with ” Retruths” just like retweets. Truth Social also has a newsfeed which is called “Truth Feed”.
Truth Social Content Policies
Truth Social launched with the vision of being a “big tent” platform without political censorship, allowing for “free speech”.
In October 2021, when the company was first announced, its terms of service stated that the company would not be legally responsible for “what users might post to the service, whether it is content, accuracy, offensiveness, opinions, or reliability.” It appears that this self-declared immunity stems from Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which Trump opposed vehemently during his presidency.
In addition, the terms of service stated that users were prohibited from “disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm us and/or the Site”. As well as “taking appropriate legal action”, the company said it has the right to suspend or terminate your account.
According to Truth Social, it has blocked accounts for behavior it deems harmful or inappropriate, such as creating accounts with parody names and making death threats.
Update 29/4/22: Agenda of creating Truth Social
Former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook last year in the month of January.
Many people like then-Congressman Devin Nunes now CEO of Trump Media & Technology group felt that these big tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. were trying everything in their power to suppress the voices and opinions of the users.
In an interview with Joe Pags, Mr. Nunes says that he had a few people look into why he wasn’t getting any views on Twitter or Instagram and they realized that Nunes was being shadow-banned.
That is when Trump offered former congressman Nunes the position of CEO and he accepted it.
The main objective of creating this social media platform was to create a safe space where users can share their views and opinions about political or other matters without fearing that they will be banned from the platform.
Truth Social aims to be a free and open-source distributed social network. This platform was created to fight against the big tech companies of silicon valley that suppress the voices of people.
According to CEO Devin Nunes of TMTG Truth Social is going to take the best of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook and combine them to have the best features of all.
