Former Trump Miller aide launches social media site GETTR

(Reuters) – Former senior adviser to former U.S. President Donald Trump Jason Miller launched a social media site called GETTR, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

GETTR, a Twitter-style platform with topical posts and topics, touted itself on the Google and Apple app stores as “an unbiased social network for people around the world.”

The launch, which was first reported by Politico, comes after Trump lost his megaphone on social media earlier this year when he was blocked by a multitude of platforms after his supporters took to assault the Capitol.

The former president has been permanently banned from Twitter and remains suspended by Facebook until at least 2023 and Alphabet’s YouTube until the company determines the risk of violence has decreased.

Miller has for months teased Team Trump’s plans to start a new social media platform, but the former president doesn’t appear to have a verified account on GETTR at this point. Its involvement in GETTR, which launched in Apple’s App Store in mid-June, remains unclear.

Trump, who recently shut down a short-lived blog post on his website, joined the Rumble video platform last weekend ahead of his campaign-style rally in Ohio.

A Trump spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment and Miller could not immediately be reached for comment.
