The internet shared a collective laugh when it was announced that former United States President Donald Trump would be launching his own social media. Titled “Truth Social,” the social media platform was conceived as a way for Trump to get back at big tech. However, it seems that the platform is already riddled with issues ahead of its launch, including legal action that may lead to its termination.
Truth Social has not yet hit its public release, but mounting issues may prevent that from ever happening. According to the SFC (Software Freedom Conservancy), Truth Social copied code from Mastodon, a decentralized social network. The developers of Truth Social did so without adhering to the rules set in place by the code’s creator and may have their access to that license revoked if the violation isn’t remedied in the next 30 days.
Donald Trump stated himself that Truth Social would serve as a way to "stand up to the tyranny of big tech." Trump was banned from Twitter back in January of last year, following the riots at the US Capitol. He was also banned from Facebook and Instagram, but only temporarily. Trump often accused these platforms of censorship and silencing right-winged voices.
Other reports state that a beta of Truth Social had to be shut down as a result of trolls storming the platform. If there are any future updates on the (potentially) upcoming social media platform, we’ll let you know about it here on Shacknews.

Apparently she thinks cancer is a fungus that can be flushed out with warm water.
oops another Trump-sphere associated found guilty of shady stuff
A federal judge said Friday that defiant US Capitol rioters, who are still defending their role in the January 6 insurrection, are fueling threats against judges from people who falsely believe the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.
Attorney General Merrick Garland faced tough questions from congressional Democrats at a Thursday hearing about why more rioters aren't getting sent to jail. He was also critiqued by Republicans who believed the defendants are being treated too harshly.
remember the republican response to "antifa" ?????
wait, why does the right want their own social networks?
Twitter has admitted it amplifies more tweets from rightwing politicians and news outlets than content from leftwing sources.
The research found that in six out of seven countries, apart from Germany, tweets from rightwing politicians received more amplification from the algorithm than those from the left; right-leaning news organisations were more amplified than those on the left; and generally politicians’ tweets were more amplified by an algorithmic timeline than by the chronological timeline.
I thought republicans were mad at big tech for silencing them? what do we do now that it's known that big tech has been AMPLIFYING them? still gonna have a trumper crusade regardless, I assume.
those are the findings of a 'report' which are notoriously untrustworthy vehicles for liberal propaganda, regardless of the content. the right FEELS victimized, and thats whats important.
“As Good As It Gaetz”
Meh. I’ll believe it when I see him go to jail.
this is... amazing
Judge J. Paul Oetken denied a prosecution motion to remand both defendants into custody, saying he does not believe either is a flight risk.
The verdict comes two years after Parnas and Fruman were arrested at a Washington-area airport as they were boarding a flight to Vienna.
During the trial, jurors didn't hear about Parnas' life crisscrossing Europe with Giuliani to compile what he claimed to be damaging information on then-presidential-candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter -- but Trump and his personal attorney were not absent from the case.
not... a flight risk....
