    Trumps awesome new social media network in trouble already.

    Trump social network given 30 days to stop breaking software license


    Former President Donald Trump's new social media platform, TRUTH Social, has been given 30 days to comply with the software's terms of license before its access is terminated. If it fails to comply, the platform may face legal action or have to rebuild from scratch.


    Trump Media and Technology Group, a new company started by the former president, announced Wednesday it would soon launch TRUTH Social, a new platform aiming to "stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech." The site is being built with the open-source software Mastodon.


    The Software Freedom Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that provides support and legal services for open-source software, said Friday that while anyone can use Mastodon's code for free to build online platforms, they must comply with its license that requires offering the user's own source code, which TRUTH Social has not done.


    TRUTH Social refers to its platform and software code as "proprietary." Unless it changes its approach and opens up its code for users to view within 30 days, the platform can no longer use the Mastodon software it has been built upon.


    “The license purposefully treats everyone equally (even people we don’t like or agree with), but they must operate under the same rules of the copyleft licenses that apply to everyone else,” Bradley Kuhn, policy fellow and hacker-in-residence at Software Freedom Conservancy, wrote in a blog post. “Today, we saw the Trump Media and Technology Group ignoring those important rules — which were designed for the social good.”


    TRUMP'S SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, TRUTH SOCIAL, OVERWHELMED BY TROLLS IN FIRST HOURS


    Although TRUTH Social hasn't launched yet — it is requiring users to join a waitlist — users on Thursday managed to access a trial version of the platform to create prank accounts and fake announcements, including grotesque posts from a fake Donald Trump account.


    If TRUTH Social does not open up its source code for users to access within the next 30 days and continues to use the Mastodon software, the conservancy would have grounds to sue the Trump Media and Technology Group for violating the terms of the software license.


    “We will be following this issue very closely and demanding that Trump’s Group give the corresponding source to all who use the site,” Kuhn wrote.


    Trump is banned from almost every major social media platform — including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit — because of his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. As a result, he has been eager to return to social media after struggling to get his message out to the public for the past few months.

    "We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable," Trump said earlier this week. "I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all."

    "Investor in Trump's new social media venture backs out: "Makes me want to throw up"

    "
    "Another unnamed investor, who reportedly held a 10 percent stake in the company, was considerably more graphic when talking about being taken in by Trump's latest venture and he "sold everything as soon as he could," reports Mazza.
    "The idea that I would help [Trump] build out a fake news business called Truth makes me want to throw up," they said. "

    And no doubt you've also just read about it, as its been splashed all over the net. Though if you wish to be a part of this foolishness in believing, go right a head.

    Truth got a good ring to it.

    ^ anything at all posted about Trump is going to cause problems.

    Trumps new venture isn't about the truth its about finding a new avenue to make money.

    As we see the right wing have been muzzled, so he's just opening an alternative platform, makes good business sense, perhaps not morally correct.

    The right wing hasn't been muzzled.

    Idiotic wankers who keep spewing nonsense about stolen elections, chips in vaccines and paedophile rings at Pizza restaurants have been muzzled.

    As the fucking lunatics should be.

    In a civilised world, all these c u n t s would be in padded cells on massive doses of tranquilisers.

    Let's get into the nitty gritty of this stuff.
    Remember back when the leftist's where saying "start your own company"?
    Then Parlor became the most downloaded app on Apple and Google.
    Then Apple and Google deleted the app from their stores.
    Then Amazon blocked Parlor from the cloud.

    Can you understand now? Your own idea can be blocked by them regardless of what political or ideological leaning you may have.

    And we can see it coming again, because it's Trump they don't want it to be available, So start your own turns into , start your own as long as it conforms to my way of thinking.

    Ha Ha HA hahahahaha, I love this, using their own language against them.

    The terms of service for Truth Social state that users cannot "disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site."

    Trump'''s new social media company says users won'''t be censored — unless they disrespect the site

    remember the story about the Nevada woman woman who had died , yet she voted, and the republicans had made such a big story about it being an indication that many dead people had voted? Her republican husband was dustout over it and appearing on TV as the poster child of the republican , condemning the democrats for having used his dear dead wife in such a way.
    It was "outrageous" he said.
    Well he was just arrested and indicted, for voter fraud, It turns out it was him who had voted on his wife's name.

    It happens , but not in a significant enough way to affect the outcome,
    So far every case that was proven to have happened it was the republics that stood to gain.
