Will Donald Trump create his social network?
The origin of this question is the tension between the former Republican president of the United States and the Big tech companies that led to his banishment from most social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. The concern that has not stopped agitating the web since then finally had its answer on March 21.
A spectacular return to the media?
Even though it will not be so soon, it seems that the former U.S. president, Donald Trump is decided to create his social network. The tension during the campaigns and the accusations of fraud that followed have seen the withdrawal of access to most of his accounts and their deletion over time. The assault on the capitol on January 6, unfortunately, did not improve things for the politician.
If after he left the presidency after the confirmation of Joe Biden's victory, he was offered by several companies the possibility to create his social network, he still kept his mouth shut. Jason Miller finally broke the silence by confirming a return of his boss in the media. This would be a spectacular return when we know that the former resident of the White House accumulated 88 million followers on Twitter.
A social network on the fringe of the others?
The setbacks of the former Republican president with the mainstream media is not the only one of the moment. The Parler platform has had a similar experience with its removal from the Play Store and App Store. This shows to some extent that the ubiquity of extremist content on various online platforms does not remain without complicating their moderation.
It is therefore normal to wonder if the GOP torchbearer will create a social network that will only find its answer in its fan club or will be able to face the current challenges in the field. In any case, whether his platform is close to Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube, monetization or moderation will remain a major challenge for the New York billionaire.
