Some Trump supporters believe the social network is biased against conservative voices – in 2018. One group even sued Twitter, Facebook and Google, accusing them of violating antitrust laws and violating their First Amendment rights by conspiring to suppress conservative viewpoints.

This case has been thrown out of court several times. According to a New York University study published earlier this year, there is no evidence of conservative bias in the world's most popular social network, there's even an Instagram bug in the months leading up to the United States (US) Presidential Election. who prefer Trump content over Biden.

However, it is true that Facebook and Twitter banned Trump from their platforms after the January 6 US Capitol riots. Twitter ruled that Trump's tweet at the time violated its policies.

According to the website, Trump's tweets should be read in the context of the wider events in the country and the way the President's statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence. Earlier this month, Trump sued to get his Twitter account back, arguing that the ban violated his First Amendment rights.

Indeed, its ban on the website received particular attention in the TRUTH Social announcement. He said in a statement, "We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, but your favorite American President has been silenced."

TRUTH Social will launch a beta in November for invited guests. Trump and his team expect to roll it out nationwide in the first quarter of 2022.
