GETTR CEO Jason Miller told “Mornings with Maria” on Tuesday that the new wave of alternative social media isn’t about competition, but rather about coming together to take down Big Tech.
After having a conversation with former President Trump regarding his re-emergence with Truth Social, Miller explained that the two social media executives shared a common goal.
“There was never any talk of GETTR versus Truth Social,” he said. “It’s about taking power away from the Silicon Valley oligarchs and decentralizing more, so it’s not just Twitter and Facebook that have all the control.”
JOE ROGAN LEADS MOVE TO GETTR AFTER TWITTER BAN DR. ROBERT MALONE, REP. MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE
Miller suggested there’s plenty of space in the market for new platforms to continue to emerge and join the Big Tech “bulk dump” movement.
GETTR recently gained 1 million new users – totaling a milestone of 4 million users – after podcast personality Joe Rogan jumped ship Twitter and encouraged his followers to join. Rogan’s transition was sparked after virologist Dr. Robert Malone and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., were permanently banned from Twitter.
GETTR has since welcomed other big names such as Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and former presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, whom Miller called “huge” for the platform.
Miller referred to Big Tech social media’s increasingly blatant “political discrimination” against any central right-wing beliefs, to the point where now “it’s almost customary.” The CEO credited Trump with saying the best — “if they’re willing to do it to me, they’ll do it to any of you.”
“And they’re not going to stop at people who identify politically,” Miller added. “Look at the way Nicki Minaj has been digitally imprisoned, or the way they’re trying to undo Dave Chappelle. So they won’t stop until they completely define the world from their own perspective. .”

Miller suggested that Big Tech companies have seen such a big drop, especially in stock performance, because people are waking up and acknowledging that Silicon Valley leaders, who weren’t elected, determine their constitutional right to freedom of expression.
The GETTR manager pointed out that the platform is also a global effort, with more than half of all users currently being international. This includes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and three of his elected sons.
“It’s really a global problem; it’s not just in the United States that you have these frustrations with Big Tech,” he said. “What we’re focused on here is protecting free speech, but also making sure it’s a safe environment for people.”
