Surprise! Truth Social Is Banning And Censoring Users After Saying It Wouldn’t Ban And Censor Users

Assuming that you were one of the few who were able to get into former President Donald Trump’s social network known as Truth Social, you might have a new problem that is different than trying and failing to register and/or being put on a waitlist of hundreds of thousands of people. You might get banned or censored if you say the wrong thing.

Take Matt Ortega who is a bit of a prankster. He tried to register DevinNunesCow on Truth Social. Devin Nunes is the CEO of the company behind this gong show of a social media network. And he was also a congressman who loved to be a cheerleader for Trump. But he also has very thin skin who tried to sue a pair of parody Twitter accounts who were trolling him. Namely Devin Nunes’ Mom and Devin Nunes’ Cow. Those lawsuits didn’t go Nunes way, and clearly Truth Social doesn’t want him to be trolled. Which is why Ortega likely had this happen to him:

That’s kind of funny. But this isn’t.

If you click the graphic, you will see the following:

You can find some basic facts about Stew Peters here. But here’s what you need to know. He’s an anti-vaxxer with some…. extreme views of the universe.

Both of these events go against the pledge that Truth Social’s pledge to be censorship free. But there was zero chance that Truth Social was ever going to be censorship free. The simple fact is that Truth Social currently has no web interface like Twitter or Facebook do. Thus they are totally reliant on apps. Or app seeing as they are only on the Apple App Store at the moment. And the App Store along with Google Play have rules that say that if you have content that violates their terms of service, your app get punted. Just ask Parler what that means. So Truth Social has to do some sort of moderation, aka censorship, or get banned out of existence very quickly. The DevinNunesCow thing is just Truth Social’s CEO not being able to take being trolled. But the Stew Peters thing is about the survival of Truth Social for something longer than 60 seconds. Thus if Trump supporters were hoping that they were going to find a place where they could yell into their echo chamber with their “views” of the universe, it’s not happening on Truth Social.
