Facebook and TikTok are more of a competitive threat to TRUTH Social than Twitter, according to Nunes TRUTH Social CEO Devin Nunes criticized big tech censorship, and said that a “republic cannot survive” without “an open Internet.”
Nunes said Elon Musk’s decision to back out of the Twitter deal was “no surprise” to him after following the saga for the past few months.
Nunes added that he did not buy into the narrative that Musk would become a “savior” for Twitter and rid the platform of its censorship tactics.
Nunes described Twitter as a “global PR wire for celebrity types, sport people, corporations, political hacks, and weird reporters.”
He also said Twitter is not TRUTH Social’s competition because “everyday Americans just don’t use” Twitter.
“You know, everyday Americans just don’t use it. So With our competition for TRUTH social, we’re not just trying to be a PR wire. Obviously, people will put stuff out on, on Truth, like they do on on Twitter and Instagram and other places, ” Nunes said.
“But we’re trying to be a social networking place, we’re trying to be a place that’s totally open, where people have fun, that’s family-friendly.”
Facebook and TikTok are more of a competitive threat to TRUTH Social than Twitter, according to Nunes.Boyle noted that the company is not that far from reaching ten million total users and asked Nunes to talk about the growth of the new social media platform.Nunes said the company’s growth is “phenomenal,” and they are trying to build a cancel-proof social media platform, unlike Parler, whose website went down after being restricted by Amazon Web Services. “But, you know, we are building this company so that we cannot be cancelled by any tech tyrant.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
