Pro-Trump social media app hacked twice within days of launch

A new social media platform created by allies of former US President Donald Trump was flooded with spam and hacked twice in the days following its launch, according to a report from Threat Post.

Former Trump adviser and spokesperson Jason Miller launched Gettr as an alternative social media platform to Twitter.

It mirrors Twitter's design with a post feed and trending topics and is available as a mobile app on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Trump suing is quite hilarious considering those are private companies not bound to the constitution's "free speech" clause....

AND him then sending messages to ask for donations and "upping the gift benefits for donating"

I think the man is hurting for some money, and this is just a cheap way to gain a few million dollars for his personal accounts (as they're previously done so and his "foundation" was found guilty of)

You must remember that regulating is bad unless it doesn't suit the red hats!
