Podcast host Joe Rogan, who is become a critical voice in the fight against Big Tech censorship, announced a move over to alternative social media platform GETTR on Sunday after Twitter booted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, along with Dr. Robert Malone, the founding researcher of mRNA vaccine technology who recently appeared on an episode of his podcast.
This, as you might imagine, caused “GETTR” to start trending on Twitter Sunday as users decided to weigh in on the announcement from Rogan.
“Fantastic interview with Dr Malone thank you for respecting free speech and our 1st amendment rights. I had to use my teenage sons Spotify account to see the interview…. It was a tough 3 hours for him,” one GETTR user said in a post, responding to Rogan’s announcement.
“Don’t really think you need Twitter, my friend. A bolder statement would have been to tell Twitter to go fly a kite, but glad to see you here,” another user of the platform stated.
Last week, Twitter also banned Dr. Malone, who recently appeared on Rogan’s podcast to discuss topics related to the vaccine, including the technology behind it and possible side effects he says pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer have not been transparent about. Twitter banned Malone due to an unknown post, but he speculated on Rogan’s show it was because his views were deemed to have prompted “vaccine hesitancy.”
“Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of the nine original mRNA vaccine patents, which were originally filed in 1989 (including both the idea of mRNA vaccines and the original proof of principle experiments) and RNA transfection. Dr. Malone, has close to 100 peer-reviewed publications which have been cited over 12,000 times,” Rogan remarked in an Instagram post, introducing his guest just ahead of the podcast airing.
You can find Dr. Robert Malone here!

GETTR was launched on July 4 by former Donald Trump adviser Jason Miller, who says he wanted the social media app to be “independent from social media monopolies, independent from cancel culture; embracing free speech,” Fox News reported.
This is huge, both for folks looking for ways to get together and share information and news links, along with their opinions without worrying about the powers that be shutting them down, and also for GETTR, as Joe Rogan is pretty much a modern-day legend with a massive, MASSIVE following.
No doubt the social media platform’s numbers have now started to explode.
Free speech is critical, folks.
