Podcaster Joe Rogan has officially opened a GETTR account —and he’s asking his nearly 8 million Twitter followers to join him.
“Just in case sh-t over at Twitter gets even dumber, I’m here now as well,” Rogan wrote on GETTR. “Rejoice!”
GETTR, which positions itself as a marketplace of ideas, founded on the principles of free speech, was founded by former Trump advisor Jason Miller.
“It’s been nothing short of phenomenal,” Miller told FOX Business in an interview after the app surpassed 1 million downloads in its first days. “It’s the fastest-ever social media platform to reach 1 million users – which we were able to do just three days after launch.”
Rogan is one of the more high-profile names to jump to GETTR. According to Fox News, “Rogan’s move to GETTR came on the same day that Twitter permanently banned the personal account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., for spreading what the social media company deemed COVID-19 “misinformation.”
“Twitter also banned Dr. Robert Malone days before he appeared on Rogan’s podcast to discuss the government response to the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines. Malone, a contributor to mRNA vaccine technology, also opened a GETTR account.”
But the biggest slap in the face to the tiny blue bird? GETTR was trending on Twitter after Rogan’s big move.
