Jason Miller says social media platforms GETTR and Trump are about wresting power from oligarchs in Silicon Valley

Jason Miller, CEO of GETTR, told “Mornings with Maria” on Tuesday that the new wave of alternative social media is not about competition, but instead uniting to eradicate Big Tech.

After having a conversation with former President Trump regarding his re-emergence with Truth Social, Miller clarified that the two social media leaders share a common goal.

“This was never about GETTR versus the Truth Social,” he said. “It’s about taking power away from the oligarchs in Silicon Valley and further decentralizing it, so it’s not just Twitter and Facebook that have total control.”

Miller suggested that there is plenty of room in the market for new platforms to continue to emerge and join the Big Tech “wholesale rejection” movement.

GETTR recently gained 1 million new users – 4 million users in total – after podcast personality Joe Rogan jumped the Twitter ship and encouraged his followers to join him. Rogan’s transformation began after virologist Dr. Robert Mallon and Representative Marjorie Taylor Green, Republic of Georgia, were both permanently banned from Twitter.

GETTR has since welcomed other big names such as Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and former presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, who Miller described as “huge” for the platform.

Miller touched on Big Tech’s blatant “political discrimination” against any right-leaning beliefs, to the point that it is now “almost fashionable”. The CEO credited Trump with delivering it best – “If they’re willing to do it to me, they’ll do it to any of you.”

“They’re not just going to stop with people who identify with politics,” Miller added. “Look at the way Nicki Minaj has been put in digital prison, or the way they’re trying to undo Dave Chappelle. So they’re not going to stop until they put the whole world in their view.”

Miller noted that the big tech companies have seen a significant downturn in stock performance especially due to the fact that people are waking up and realizing that CEOs in Silicon Valley, who are not yet voted into office, are deciding their constitutional right to free speech.

The head of GETTR confirmed that the platform was also a global effort with over half of all users currently international. Among them are Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and three of his elected official sons.

“This is a really global issue; it’s not just in the US where you have these frustrations with the big tech companies,” he said. “What we’re focusing on here is protecting freedom of expression but also making sure it’s a safe environment for people to join in.”
