OH NO: Trump's New "Social Media Platform" is Just a Blog - YouTube


Donald Trump’s ‘social media platform’ has launched and it’s just a blog​


After months of promising his own social media network for banned posters, former President Donald Trump on Tuesday launched a new section of his website — essentially a standard-issue blog.

The “platform” is styled like of Twitter but hosted as a running blog of Twitter-length commentary from Trump. People can sign up for post alerts on the platform through their email and phone numbers and are allegedly able to like them, although that function doesn’t appear to work as of publication. Users are also allowed to share Trump’s posts on Facebook and Twitter. The Twitter sharing option doesn’t currently work, but Facebook’s does allow people to share Trump’s posts.
