WASHINGTON (AFP) — The conservative-friendly internet infrastructure company RightForge will host former U.S. President Donald Trump’s new social media platform, Truth Social, its CEO Martin Avila said.
Avila told the online news outlet Axios that he expected Trump’s new social network to have more than 75 million users, and the web hosting company has been “laying the groundwork for that.”
“That’s why there will be servers everywhere,” Avila said in an interview with Axios published on Tuesday.
…The video streaming service will compete with “the increasingly ‘woke’ and politicized ‘entertainment’ programming created by Big Tech and Big Media players,” Trump said.
“We’ve seen a sitting president of the United States effectively silenced by a small oligarchy of tech titans and ‘mainstream’ media corporations,” he said.
“I am determined to break their chokehold over the voices of the American People — not just for myself and my own supporters, but for the United States of America!”link
