i just set up a gettr account.
those interested can follow me there.
not sure whether and to what extent i will get involved and cross post there, but it seems like an potentially interesting new platform and will be taking a look to see if it germinates into anything useful.
some pals seem to be trying it out as well. (and getting schmancy red V’s…)
btw, to be clear and because people are asking, i am not going anywhere. i really like the substack platform and will seek others as an adjunct to this and to increase its reach, not as any attempt to replace it.
i like it in here.
Yeah, the new Parler. Wait til there are enough big names on it, it gets popular, and poof - it will be undermined. (My guess, based on recent history.) Meanwhile, Gab has already fought Big Tech attacks to take it down, has already found solutions to prevent that, and imho will be the last free-speech social media site standing, all while also building the Parallel Economy, so we're less likely to become slaves through that tactic.
I find substack much more convenient than the blue bird and similar. When someone has something important to say, a limited number of characters is not very interesting.
I like gab.com
How many times do you people have to fall for this? Moving from one centralized platform that censors you, to a different centralized platform that inevitably fails either because only the "undesirable" people moved there or because it stops being profitable.
I genuinely wonder how many years, if ever, it's gonna take for the terms "decentralization" and "federation" to enter the common parlance of ordinary people, because until then, we're not gonna move forward.
Want to have a free and noncensorious Twitter? Join or create a Fediverse instance.
Want the same with Youtube? Peertube.
Want to have a chat platform where you're not sending your data to someone who has the incentive to misuse it? XMPP or Matrix protocol based messengers, such as Element.
Don't join yet another centralized alt-tech grift project that will shut down or get abandoned in a couple of years. Work on creating an interconnected federated network without centralized control, you're not gonna find what you're looking for until then.
This is just the break up Yugoslavia playing out on social media. Instead of algorithmically controlled echo chambers, we now have echo platforms. Group think herding into different applications.
Just set up an account and looked for you there yesterday... so excited Ethical Skeptic is there too! You guys were the first cats in the cool barn in Ye Auld April of Twenty.
Cats and truth. Yep, pretty much the most important things in life 🐈🧠
Glad you’re staying on Substack. You’ve built a great community here. I’m already overwhelmed by the Substack writers I read, so probably won’t follow you there…Glad you’re checking it out.
im wary of it, even more so after reading Jordan Schachtel's posts last night; https://twitter.com/JordanSchachtel/status/1477819325247590401?s=20
I wish you would post on Gab. Gettr is pretty weak and there are a lot of interesting people on Gab. It is like the unrestricted lane on the autobahn. Dr. Malone has an account there.
Have you tried Telegram? I’m tempted to join solely for the Mike Yeadon/Cory Morningstar/Robin Monotti channel:
I don’t have time for anything outside of Substack so will continue to resist, but for those who are interested, I hear Telegram’s excellent.
Bobby Rajesh Malhotra from Twitter say:
GETTR is literally hosted by Amazon Cloudservices subsidiaries .
Google ReCAPTCHA implemented
GETTR = CIA honeypot
Some people saying they are having trouble deleting the app.
This is just what I'm hearing...lots of GETTR promos so let's not let our curiosity get the best of us feline friends.
I signed up on GETTR but I'll probably deactivate the account. There is far too much bad mouthing and very little interesting talk. Substack is the best platform out there for my interest.
Is GETTR flavor of the month like Parler? Parler came back after it was kicked off its servers but no one talks about it anymore. Is a week's downtime all it takes to silence a new platform? And if that is so, GETTR's future is not bright...
You may want to research the ownership and platform that supports this site.
Don’t care for GETTR. Prefer the freedom of GAB.
Gettr has been in the news lately and I no longer recommend it. There are connections to China. A better choice is Gab.
glad to see you on Gettr - I just joined also! So far I like it pretty well. I still have to be on Twitter/FB/IG for my job sadly.
Parler - sorry to the poster who works there (Amy P.) - UI just not good. Gab also - terrible. with UI there is the visual part and the "playthrough" feel part. Gab is terrible on both counts, Parler just on the "feel" part. I am an ex UX/UI consultant (retired from tech now, and back in the Evil ad world and much much happier for it).
You and Joe Rogan . . . the big to-do today is that after they pulled MTG (I don't agree with her, but she has a right to say what she wants and she's braver than most), he announced he was going to GETTR.
😭 (I work for Parler)
Awesome! I joined yesterday and I was looking for you!
"Gettr CEO Promotes Face Masks in Public, Quarantines, Travel Restrictions to Stop COVID"
"Gab is a First Amendment company which means we tolerate “offensive” but legal speech.
"We believe that a moderation policy which adheres to the First Amendment, thereby permitting offensive content to rise to the surface, is a valuable and necessary utility to society.
"It allows unorthodox but correct views, such as the Wuhan Lab Origin Theory that was banned on Twitter and YouTube but permitted on Gab, to propagate.
"It allows hateful ideas, such as anti-White CRT, to be exposed and subject to scrutiny and challenge. It also allows Americans, and others around the world, to enjoy the full measure of their human right to speak freely online.
"Supporting the mission of freedom online means having the stomach to accept that people will say “edgy and offensive” things."

Suspended from GETTR so far, on a 2-minute search:
- Roger Stone (the real one)
- Nick Fuentes (I listened to a speech he gave once, and he reminded me of 1990s Pat Buchanan)
- The word 'groyper' (and I don't even know what it signifies, but otoh I don't care, really)
"Yet that move by the platform left Fuentes, fellow far-right allies, and his loyal white nationalist “groyper” fans fuming and spamming Miller’s forum. On Thursday night, Gettr started to block users from posting the word “groyper,” which originates from a variation of the Pepe the Frog meme with extremely racist undertones."" *
Add to all that that the GETTR Comms Director celebrated Biden's win, and . . . good luck with GETTR, y'all.

Shared by Andrew Torba on Gab, and commented on by Ashley Rae @Communism_Kills:
"Holy cow. These tweets in this article are from 2021. This woman didn't just go from being a NeverTrumper to being a part of Con Inc while they begrudgingly embraced Trump, she was actively anti-conservative in 2021!
"Why do these people get promoted so quickly and get such high ranking jobs so quickly? Besides someone trying to hire "Ebony" thinking she's black, of course."
Paper. Broadside posters (take a Gato meme, print it and staple it to a telephone pole. See what happens). Cursive (the new Navajo code breaker). Typewriters. Smoke signals. One on one , face to face conversation. Reputation. Track record. Non digital photography. Printed books. Manual transmissions, carburetors and distributors. Metal money. Why is there not a phone with an instant, easy chip removal feature? I am not a Luddite. Give some thought to how you would communicate something important without being monitored and recorded. Siri? Alexa? You’re with us, right?
My friends at university used to buy old typewriters in Goodwills and send the keys to Eastern Europe to be subbed in over there so samizdat could not be traced...this communication problem we have now cannot be solved on the internet. For only short while did the many get to talk to each other. Now we are back to the few talking to the many, except many exits have been blocked...You think theses stacks are not being watched and triangulated?
Gab is more "independent" - except it is only funded by users, thus there is an ongoing viability issue.
Did you read about GETTR’s founder having received funding from a CCP member? Gives me pause.
We all need to leave Twitter. I already did last year. Leave it. We all need to stop giving those commies money and audience via the conservative journalists that keep pushing that cesspool in their articles. Gettr is where its happening. I liked Parler but the overlords did that in. Gettr isnt even as good but that is where the exodus is going.
It is the most obnoxious and primitive site I've ever seen in the internet latrine.
Very limited number of words, extremely limited length of clips, no edit, limited number of blocked trolls, nothing ever works as it should. Embarrassing, even for the illiterate kid who managed to crop and patch such annoying software.
Always make sure you have a backup when you hit "post", there are 98% chances to lose everything in Miller's black hole. Very patronising and absolutely full of rubbish you cannot avoid.
But hey, it's your life. Do as you please. I just closed my account after 6 months of endless pain.
Awesome! Would love to see you on GAB also.
Try the Fediverse; it’s the only social media “platform” that’s not a walled garden.
Love your work!
Is Gettr essentially Twitter? It looks to be a literal clone of the platform but with different management?
Since you're gonna be using more Internet services, may I suggest a Cat 5 Satellite Connection?
Watch out for GETTR. It is nearly as bad as Twitter. https://talkliberation.substack.com/p/gettr-app-report?
Bettr on Gettr? Ask Nicholas Fuentes for references.
I like MeWe and Telegram, and got on gettr because of you being there - but I can't see how to view the timeline/who I've followed. And it makes me do captcha which is the worst thing ever. Still trying to figure out how to use it, though.
Not sure what to make of GETTR, especially if Trump's own "Truth" platform launches soon?
If I were you, el pusso, I would simply dump my Subs on GETTR. Time is galleons; and "they" want to keep us distracted.
Heh, cats take over Gettr...I'm on it as of today. Mreow!
Best news I've heard all DAY! :)
I'd like someone to explain to me why this is better than Minds.com, which is open-source, bi-partisan, crypto-enabled, and deplatform-proof.
I have an account on Gettr but wasn't using it - you just made it all the more interesting!
I just signed up for gettr and followed gato and they suggested i follow jair bolsonaro which is ... not my jam. I'll give it a try but I'm looking for a moderate land, not stolen election talk.
Thoughts on this re GETTR? https://twitter.com/jmichaelwaller/status/1411351785437007879?s=21
So many social media platforms upon which to waste time. So little to show for it, but still, I do it. See you on there!
Reminder: no privately-owned social media platform is a "public square" of any kind, and they absolutely love rubes like you pretending that they are. It gives them fake legitimacy.
