(FreedomBeacon.com)- Former President Donald Trump is gearing up to finally launch his alternative social media platform, TRUTH Social.
The platform, which is designed to look, feel, and function like Twitter, is already being tested by hundreds of beta users. It is expected to go live later this month.
Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Trump, teased the launch of the new platform with a screenshot of the first post made by his father.
“Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon,” Trump says in his first post, which is known as a “Truth.”

The platform is owned and run by Trump’s brand-new media and technology company, known as Trump Media & Technology Group. It will first launch a Twitter-like social media platform designed for conservatives, allowing them to post political content and far-left Big Tech executives often ban from their mainstream social media networks.
The launch will then reportedly be followed up by the launch of new television shows, podcasts, and more under the Trump Media and Technology Group name.
Looking at the screenshot posted by Trump Jr., it’s clear just how similar the platform will be to Twitter. The verification badge looks very simpler, but appears to be red instead of blue. Trump uses the same profile picture he used on his Twitter account, and even the @realDonaldTrump handle.
Now, he’ll need to go up against his own former advisor, Jason Miller, who runs the competing conservative-friendly social media network Gettr.
