Trump's New "Social Media Platform" is Just a Blog

Donald Trump launched his own social media alternative yesterday and it looks much more like a blog than an actual platform. The former president was banned from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook after the January 6th insurrection and ever since he’s tried to come up with new ways to get messages out to his followers. After months of work, people employed by the ex-president managed to create a webpage called the “Donald J. Trump desk” where visitors can check out blurbs dictated by the former Commander in Chief. Next to the blurbs, there are buttons for users to share Trump’s posts on their own Facebook and Twitter feeds. The site is complete with a video that goes through the timeline of Trump getting suspended from social media and explains that this blog is the solution. What’s amazing is that given his resources, the former president wasn’t able to come up with something that looked more dynamic or that could involve his supporters in a more community-oriented way.
