Trump fans have created their own social media platform, ‘GETTR’ - essentially, a questionable clone of Twitter. Though Trump is yet to join the platform, his ex-White House aide, Jason Miller, was the one who came up with the concept.

According to the tagline, ‘GETTR’ is the “marketplace of ideas” with aims of “fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, and challenging social media monopolies.”

The pro-Trump social media app was, however, hacked on the first day of launching - unlucky. The half-a-million people who had signed up to the app that prides itself on ‘free speech’ ended up with social feeds flooded with images of middle-aged men in their underwear, ‘furry porn’, and images of Sonic the Hedgehog... In the nude.

People found this hysterical and took to Twitter.

One person broke the news of the masses of naked hedgehog animations.

Another said: “Trump watching twitter people making fun of GETTR app on twitter”

One user came up with a Trump-appropriate tagline for GETTR.

Well, what do you expect when you create a ‘team Trump’ app that prides itself on ‘free speech’..?
