President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that he is looking into creating his own social media site following the bold move by Twitter to ban the president from the platform.
Fox News reports that Trump tweeted from the @Potus account, indicating that he was discussing the idea with other sites and an update would be forthcoming.
“We have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!”
“STAY TUNED!” he added.
In the @POTUS tweets, Trump noted overturning Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a law that safeguards tech companies from being held accountable for what users post on their sites.
“Twitter may be a private company,” the president said “but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long.”
