CEO Jason Miller: Gettr is Decentralizing and Regains the “Right To Speak”
The new wave of alternative social media is not about competition, but about taking down Big Tech all together, Gettr CEO Jason Miller said on Maria Bartiromo’s morning news Tuesday.
Jason Miller had a conversation with former President Trump about his return to social media through Truth Social. Miller explained that the two social media leaders have a common goal. “It was never about Gettr versus Truth Social, it was about decentralizing and taking power away from the Silicon Valley oligarchs”, he said. Miller suggested that there is enough market space for new social platforms to continue to emerge and participate in the “mass (user) rejection” movement of Big Tech companies.
Gettr recently added another 1 million subscribers, bringing the total to a milestone of 4 million subscribers, after podcasting celebrity Joe Rogan dropped Twitter and encouraged his followers to join him. Rogan’s entry into Gettr was sparked after both virologist Dr. Robert Malone and U.S. Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was permanently banned from Twitter.
Gettr has since brought in other big names like Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and former presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, which Miller says is huge for the platform.
Miller also spoke of the increasingly blatant “political discrimination” of Big Tech’s social media against figures of any right-leaning beliefs, to the point that it is now “almost the norm”. He recalls one of Trump’s best quotes, “If they’ll do it to me, they’ll do it to any of you”.
“And they don’t just stop at people who identify with politics.” Miller added. “Look at the way Twitter treats these people, putting Nicki Minaj in a digital prison, banning her from posting, or trying to take down Dave Chappelle’s account. So, they don’t stop until they frame the world entirely in their own perspective.”
Miller argues that the big tech declines, especially in stock performance, is because people are waking up to the fact that Silicon Valley executives aren’t voted into office, they’re defining their own constitution.
The person in charge of Gettr emphasized that the platform is also globally available, noting that more than half of all current users are international. This includes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his three sons of elected officials.
“This is truly a global issue; it’s not just in the U.S. where you have these frustrations with Big Tech,” he said. “What we have a focus on here is protecting free speech but also making sure it’s a safe environment for people to join”.
