(WTVO) — Former President Donald Trump is making his own social media app months after being banned by multiple platforms following the January 6th attack on the Capitol.

According to ABC News, Trump Media & Technology Group and Digital World Acquisition Group have entered into a merger to create a new company.

The name of the new social media platform will be called TRUTH Social.

The beta version of the platform will be available only to people with an invite in November.

A couple social media groups the platform is geared to fight against is Facebook and Twitter, which Trump is still banned from.

The platform will form “a rival to the liberal media consortium,” Trump said.

“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced,” he said.
