Jason Miller resigned as a senior spokesman for President Donald J. Trump to give “silicon valley” a run for their money while he gathers up social media posters and gives them a new, cancel-free Twitter-style experience.
“Join the marketplace of ideas. Free Speech. Independent Thought. Superior Technology. Sign up for your free account now. Celebrate Freedom. Flex Your 1st Amendment,” the welcome page reads.
The site is GETTR.com, and it was launched on July 4th for people who wanted to assert their independence from oppressive social media tech giants.
Liz Willis of Right Side Broadcast reported that GETTR had 1 million sign-ups by day two, a huge success.

On Monday, one day after the launch, Miller, now the CEO of GETTR, spoke to Newsmax about Trump’s future and the future of his new job.

Fox News reported recently on the new platform:
EXCLUSIVE The platform is called “GETTR,” which Miller, the CEO of the company, told Fox News evolved from the idea of “getting together.”
Miller added: “We want people from all political stripes to join the platform.”
GETTR is officially launching on Sunday, July 4 at 10:00 a.m. ET, but the platform is already in the App Stores.
“This ties in with Independence Day,” Miller said. “Independent from social media monopolies, independent from cancel culture; embracing free speech—our launch on Sunday is very much intentional.”
“We believe there needs to be a new social media platform that really defends free speech, and one that doesn’t de-platform for political beliefs,” he continued. “This is a challenge to social media monopolies.”
Miller said the platform has “superior technology” to existing platforms, saying that conservative alternatives often are “not as good.”
“We’re starting a cutting edge technology that will really be the envy of the social media world,” Miller said.
GETTR allows users to post longer messages with up to 777 characters. Miller said GETTR would also allow users to post “clearer pictures,” post videos that are up to three minutes long and have the ability to edit the videos within the app.
Miller told Fox News that upon signing up for GETTR, users would have the option to “import their existing tweets into this new platform.”
“You can import these tweets so that your hard work, creativity, your intellectual property comes with you,” Miller said, noting it is a “one-time option upon creating your account,” and saying that the import does not link users back out to Twitter.
When asked if he was concerned about a potential legal challenge from Twitter, Miller said this is “a fight I don’t mind picking.”
