Since Former President Donald Trump was banned from the major social media platforms, his presence on social media has been different. After the Capitol riot in January, social media platforms have strictly enforced their guidelines. Now, Trump plans on launching his own platform called #MediaBuzz.
A senior adviser told Fox News that Trump is planning on launching his own social media platform in about three months. Jason Miller, a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 campaign, expects the platform will be the next best thing saying it, “completely refines the game.”
He told Fox, “I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform.”
“Everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does,” Miller added.
Although he didn’t give too many details about the platform, he did say that there have been meetings about the launch at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump’s former adviser didn’t elaborate much more about details, only saying that Trump has been having meetings at Mar-a-Lago about launching the platform.
He is confident that Trump will be able to get millions of people to download the platform. It’s safe to assume that Trump’s platform will benefit from Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act since he spent months trying to repeal it.
Until then, Trump will be endorsing Republican candidates as soon as today. Trump announced his endorsement for Representative Jody Hice. “Pay attention to Georgia tomorrow, on Monday. There’s a big endorsement that’s coming that’s going to really shake things up in the political landscape in Georgia. It’s big, it’s coming tomorrow, and just be sure to tune in,” Miller stated Sunday.
Twitter’s Reaction to #MediaBuzz
Twitter quickly came with jokes for the anticipation of Trump’s new social media platform. Many have made jokes about the kind of people who are going to download the platform. Users have even expressed some concerns as to what kind of information people will be spreading on this potential new platform.
After Former President Trump’s tweets inciting the riots at the Capitol Building, people can’t help but wonder if this kind of behavior will be repeated since there won’t be any strict guidelines that Donald Trump will have to follow.
If Donald Trump makes up his own rules on this platform, what kind of things will be said on there? Where is the line drawn? These kinds of questions are being asked since the announcement of this new social media platform.
The FBI has thanked Donald Trump for his plans to create his own social media platform, rendering their surveillance of white nationalist terrorism all the easier.

I hope President Trump puts Zuckerberg and Dorsey out of business with his new social media site.

Trump is starting his own social media platform?
A. Who cares?

One of the main features on Trump’s new social media network will be the absence of spell check.

Idea Trump wants to start own social media platform tells you he understands how to make the media pay attention to him on Twitter, but nothing about how social media works. Social media runs on ads, only so many Goya & MyPillows around, if its all trolls, will get boring quick

Along with buzz about the new platform #MediaBuzz, Trump 2024 is trending on Twitter today. People are debating whether Former President Donald Trump will run again in 2024. While some Republicans tweet out how they wished he was in office now.
From what Trump has said and done the past few days honestly makes me feel like he doesn’t plan on running in 2024.

Trump will not run in 2024. He will never risk another loss like that again.

Banned from Twitter
Following Trump’s incitements of the US Capitol riots on January 6th, social media platforms permanently banned Trump. The US Capitol riots where hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol building left five people dead.
Twitter was quick to ban Donald Trump since he was tweeting out inciting these riots. Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube also quickly banned his accounts following the riots. Twitter was Former President Donald Trump’s go-to social media platform. He was notorious for tweeting things all throughout his presidency.
