A brand new social media company is on the scene, GETTR, which was created by former President Donald Trump spokesman Jason Miller and some of his allies, and it’s membership is exploding.
In fact, the user base just surpassed 1.5 million users in record time, 11 days, and is looking to experience “substantial growth” according to data from a brand new survey.
A poll created by Fabrizio, Lee & Associates found that there aren’t many members of the GOP who haven’t heard of GETTR, but two-thirds of those who have heard of the platform have are already on it or planning to be on it soon.
“Despite low level of awareness, new platform GETTR has high conversion rate and has an opportunity for substantial growth,” the analysis of the poll went on to reveal. It’s important to note this survey was not commissioned by GETTR.
“Given its promise of free speech and independent thought, GETTR appears to be a new social media platform that would fit the needs of Republicans tired of Facebook and Twitter,” the analysis continued.
Pollster Tony Fabrizo told Secrets, “Overall, 15% have heard something about GETTR and of that 15%, 2% say they’ve already joined and another 8% say they plan on joining with 5% saying they won’t join. So 10% have or will join out of 15% which has them converting 2 out of 3 GOPers who are aware of it. Among Trump voters in the 2024 primary ballot, 20% are aware of GETTR with 3% having joined, 15% who will join and 5% who won’t. That is 15% out of 20% or a conversion rate of 3 in 4.”
Miller, currently on a national tour to promote the site, said that it hit 1.5 million users faster than any competitor, including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
It launched on July Fourth in a hat-tip to Independence Day, promising free speech. Initially, it faced glitches and a brief hack, but the problems are settling out, and it has become the go-to site for the Trump Team, top conservative media and GOP voices, and even global users also targeted in the worldwide liberal social media “cancel culture.”
One of the features that makes GETTR very, very different from its competitors is that it has a moderator filter that helps to weed out porn, threats, and hate. This is probably a good idea as most of us don’t want to have to put up with junk we don’t want to see, but don’t want any kind of censorship on the platform.
GETTR also offers 777 characters and advanced video capabilities. As of now, Trump himself is not on the platform, but that could change very soon.
