While big tech thought they could keep Trump silent by booting him off social media, it appears that he has other plans.
During an interview with Newsmax’s Greg Kelly, Trump hinted that he’s looking to come back to social media, but via conservative alternatives like Gab or Parler.
He also indicated that he might make his own site, saying “You can literally build your own site.”

“If you look at what’s going with Twitter, I understand that it’s become very boring and millions of people are leaving. They’re leaving it because it’s not the same and I can understand that,” Trump said.
“We’re negotiating with a number of people, and there’s also the other operation of building your own site. You can literally build your own site,” he added.
Trump is weighing his options but he has made it clear that he is not intending to return to Twitter considering how they have treated him and his supporters.
“We were being really harassed on Twitter. They were putting up all sorts of flags, I guess they call them. They were flagging almost anything you said. Everything I was saying was being flagged. It’s disgraceful, and yet you have other foreign countries saying the worst things possible, and they don’t even talk about it. But it’s become very boring. We don’t want to go back to Twitter,” Trump said.
Trump starting his own social media empire would be just the thing to turn Silicone Valley on it’s head.
And lord knows that big tech needs to be force fed a big old piece of humble pie.
