Donald Trump at present launched a personal social media web site. Its membership is so unique that solely former US presidents who’ve been impeached twice are allowed to publish there.
The location’s known as “From The Desk of Donald J Trump.” That doesn’t fairly roll of the tongue like Twitter or Fb. However I’m holding out hope that we’ll quickly discover out Trump’s posts are known as “Deskies.” That may be cute and this story wants one thing to lighten the temper as a result of it’s all very unhappy.
Apparently 45’s been posting away on FTDoDJT since 24 March. What makes this fascinating is that Fox Information had the unique and introduced the location at present, 4 Could.
Which means the previous president’s been quietly posting to himself for months now.
The concept right here might be one thing alongside the traces of launching with a bevy of fabric for readers to retweet and/or publish on Fb. However that, too, appears dumb.
Then once more, perhaps creating a social media platform from the bottom up simply to backdoor Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg into letting you publish on their websites with out permission is a wonderfully rational PR technique within the trendy period.
Maybe Trump’s innovation will encourage us all to carve out our personal little areas on the internet the place we will publish to our coronary heart’s content material with out having to work together with different individuals. It’s sensible. Perhaps we might adorn our areas with GIFs and have them play music within the background when individuals go to them.
The areas, they’d be ours. You realize? They’d be areas that had been only for us. Like, I’d say “this right here, is my house.” Perhaps sooner or later we’ll all collect our areas on a single web site the place we will share them along with Trump.
However what would we name it?
Maybe at present’s foolish launch has one thing to do with this: Fb Oversight Board to announce if it’ll reverse Trump ban on Could 5.
