Jason Miller, an aide and close advisor to Donald Trump, is launching a new social app called “Gettr” in coming days, sources tell Axios.
Details: The app, which is in beta testing, appears in the Apple App Store and is described as “a non-bias social network for people all over the world.” News of the app was first broken by Politico Thursday.
State of play: Gettr, which is still in its infancy, appears to have a few thousand users, according to follower counts of some of the more prominent, suggested accounts.
- Many users, however, appear anonymous, lacking much profile information.
- The app looks like Twitter, with a scrolling news feed with a small pencil at the bottom for users to compose a message.
- It has a search function and like Twitter, a trending topics function. While a quick scroll through the accounts suggests patterns pro-conservatism, there’s no obvious suggestion that the app is built by Trump allies.
- Many of the more prominent suggested accounts, including a general news account called “Daily News” appear to have been created in May of this year.
- Miller did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
