Here is the big launch I think we have all been hearing about!
Now to be perfectly clear, this isn’t President Trump’s platform, but it does come right from his senior most advisor Jason Miller—it comes from the Trump team.
The point is, I think we are now going to see a wonderful free speech alternative. Parler isn’t bad, but we all know Parler has seen its fair share of troubles these last several months.
GETTR may just take the cake, and end up becoming our social media platform of choice in the future.
Here’s more on the launch of this exciting new platform:
GETTR: "People won't be cancelled for their political beliefs."
"Posts can be as long as 777 characters, videos can be up to 3 minutes, you can also edit video within the app – you can import all of your tweets into your Gettr post history." @JasonMillerinDC. pic.twitter.com/2zTRXNASC2

Fox News reported this on the launch of the new platform:
“We believe there needs to be a new social media platform that really defends free speech, and one that doesn’t de-platform for political beliefs,” he continued. “This is a challenge to social media monopolies.”
Miller said the platform has “superior technology” to existing platforms, saying that conservative alternatives often are “not as good.”
“We’re starting a cutting edge technology that will really be the envy of the social media world,” Miller said.
GETTR allows users to post longer messages with up to 777 characters. Miller said GETTR will also allow users to post “clearer pictures,” post videos that are up to three minutes long, and have the ability to edit the videos within the app.
Miller told Fox News that upon signing up for GETTR, users will have the option to “import their existing tweets into this new platform.”

Politico was the first to reveal the new platform:
The site, called GETTR, advertised its mission statement as “fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, challenging social media monopolies, and creating a true marketplace of ideas.” The app is currently in beta form and will be officially launched on July 4 at 10a.m.
Trump’s former spokesman, Jason Miller, is leading the platform, he confirmed via text. Former Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh is involved as a consultant on the app.
Trump’s involvement with the project is unclear as is whether or not he will set up an account on GETTR and use it.
“The former president is going to make his own decision, it’s certainly there and ready for him should he make the decision — we would welcome that. There is an account reserved for him and waiting for him but that’s a decision for him to make,” said a person involved with the app.
