Trump Technology & Media Group CEO Devin Nunes sees big things ahead for the former president’s first social media platform, Truth Social.
During an interview on Fox News, Nunes talked to host Maria Bartiromo about cracking down on the tyranny of Big Tech by restoring free speech with Truth Social.
“At Truth Social, we cannot use any of the ‘tech giants’ because we don’t want to be in a position to be shut down,” Nunes said. “So now as we move forward, you know, we launched on the Apple App Store first. We just [launched] this week: TruthSocial.com, anyone can sign up on any device and get an account.”

Bartiromo asked Nunes his thoughts on a Republican-led bill being floated right now that would break up Google’s monopoly on online advertising.
The “Competition and Transparency in Digital Advertising Act” would level the playing field for companies making more than $20 billion in digital ad revenue, busting Google’s stronghold over Alphabet Inc.
The Competition and Transparency in Digital Advertising Act would “restore and protect competition in digital advertising by eliminating conflicts of interest that have allowed the leading platforms in the market to manipulate ad auctions and impose monopoly rents on a broad swath of the American economy,” a news release from Utah Republican Mike Lee’s office noted.
Nunes said of the legislation, “I think what I really see is a lack of willingness by DOJ to actually bring these anti-trust cases against these companies.”
He went on to say that at Truth Social, “we don’t want to be beholden to Google” to generate ad revenue.
Devin Nunes says Truth Social is better than Twitter because they have millions of people who have been banned from other platforms, while Twitter just has “elitists, journalists, fake news, and Hollywood celebrities.” 04
