- Former president, Donald Trump reportedly planning to join social media app, FreeSpace
- The former American leaders remain banned from Facebook and Twitter due to his actions in the Capitol riot
- He had tried to join Paler, a far-right social app, but talks broke down. He was also rumoured to join that of his former campaign manager
Former President Donald Trump seems to have found a way of gaining access to his fans after Twitter and Facebook banned him from their platform, losing the accounts which had millions of followers.
According to a report by Axios, Trump is planning on joining FreeSpace. The decision is, however, shocking to many as social media has about 20,000 downloads. The app has less public acceptance rate.
FreeSpace is an affiliate of Skylab Apps, and the tech firm prides itself against the very values Trump is known to breach. The American startup describes itself as an app that makes people get addicted to doing good.
Also, it stated that it is built on the power of positivity. This contravenes the actions Trump is known for on Twitter and Facebook before he was banned by both organisations after the Capitol riot.
But when Trump's spokesperson was contacted, they didn't respond to confirmation request, Axios stated. Aside from FreeSpace, a far-right social media app, Paler was reported contacted by Trump's organisation.
It was reported that Trump's team reached out to Paler through an anonymous identity, 'Person X'. It was believed the former President will join, but the discussion broke down. Paler users are huge supporters of the businessman.
The former US leader was also linked to the possibility of building his in order to broadcast his messages or join one built by Brad Parscale, Trump's former campaign manager.
