Social networking platform GETTR was launched by the team of former President Donald Trump on July 1, claiming to carry the mission of “fighting eradication culture, promoting common sense, protecting free speech, challenging monopoly in social media and creating a real market for ideas,” Politico reported on July 1. GETTR is available on the Google and Apple app stores, recommended for users 17 years of age and older, and is described as an “unbiased social network for people around the world”.
The name GETTR is inspired by the phrase “Getting Together”. Posts will be up to 777 characters in length, the app will store videos up to 3 minutes in length, and will also have the ability to host live streams. GETTR’s head office is located in New York.

Jason Miller (former spokesman for Donald Trump) is the head of GETTR. This platform is described as having quite similarity to the Twitter application. Mr. Trump’s involvement in the project’s launch of the new platform is unclear, nor is it known whether he created an account or used it on GETTR. However, this may indicate an effort to bring Mr. Trump back to the social network, after the former President was declared “banned” by many platforms (including Twitter, Facebook) after the incident happened in Hanoi.
