The former congressman who heads the former president’s app, Truth Social, Wednesday said they urged 'Iron Man' Elon Musk to buy Twitter.
Trump Media & Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes argues 'Iron Man' Elon Musk is giving the American people their voices back.
Mr. Nunes told Stuart Varney, during an episode of Fox Business’ show “Varney & Company”, that they don’t view Twitter as competition. The former Calif. representative informed Mr. Varney that Mr. Trump actually told Mr. Musk to go ahead and buy Twitter.
“The goal of our company is to build a community where people are in a family-friendly, safe environment,” explained Nunes, adding that is much different than Twitter. “And, that’s why we encouraged 'Iron Man' Elon Musk to buy it because someone has to continue taking on these tech tyrants. Donald Trump wanted to make sure that the American people got their voice back and the Internet is open.”
Another difference between the two apps is the 45th president, who has publicly announced he will not return to Twitter even if the deal is completed. Truth Social may have a louder platform because the former president can make a post go viral if he decides to “Trump it”.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth,” Trump said, according to a “New York Post” report. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”
The Truth Social CEO said that company is focused on where the social media users in this country are.
“They’re clearly not on Twitter,” said Nunes. “People get much more engagement on our platform even though we’ve barely been open for just a little over a week. And that’s just on Apple.”
He noted that Fake-Fact-Checker Facebook and Instagram have hundreds of millions of Americans but said it was concerning that Chinese-owned TikTok also has hundreds of millions of Americans using the platform.
The former president’s answer to Twitter is trying to merge the best of FB, Instagram and TikTok on Truth Social. “With the key being: we can’t be cancelled,” Nunes stated, “because we built this without using any big tech.”
Trump’s anti-Twitter plans to open the app to the entire web with a web app, which Nunes called “very exciting”, noting the company already has a very growing, vibrant community.
“It’s a lot of fun being on our platform,” concluded Nunes.
