Trump's Truth Social posts will have to wait before reposts on other platforms

2/2 © Reuters. FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at the White House after returning from hospitalization at the Walter Reed Medical Center for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) treatment, in Washington, October 5, 2020, in this still image from video posted on 2/2

(Reuters) - Donald Trump will have to wait for six hours before reposting his messages from social media platform Truth Social on other platforms, a regulatory filing revealed on Monday.

The platform was launched with the mission of standing up to Big Tech, after the former U.S. president was kicked off of Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and YouTube for allegedly inciting and glorifying violence during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots.

Billionaire Elon Musk, who has bid to buy Twitter for $44 billion, has said he would reverse Trump's ban on the platform, calling it "morally wrong and flat-out stupid."

Trump, who averaged 18 tweets a day when he was president, has said he would not return to Twitter even if reinstated.

He has revved up his messaging on the new platform to his millions of followers after a slow start.

"President Trump is generally obligated to make any social media post on Truth Social and may not make the same post on another social media site for 6 hours," Digital World Acquisition Corp said in a filing.

DWAC, a special purpose acquisition company which will take Truth Social's parent Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) public, filed the statement with U.S. regulators and said it expects to close the deal in the second half of 2022.

It also said Trump is free to sign offers for any new video production, but TMTG holds the right to recreate a similar program for subscription video service TMTG+ and will have to pay him for exclusive content for subscribers.

One cold hard look at Biden's leadership & the state of America, which slaps you in the face everyday, compared to America under Trump makes the choise of prosperity, safety, life & free speech over poverty, violence, death and censorship quite clear. Unless of course you are an Anti-American pushing for a USSA & a NWO wh@re.

Have you bought anything lately with this incompetent bafoon Biden as POTUS or bothered to check your 401k lately? Those who voted for this abomination of a president out of raw hate for a man who made America prosper is a very sad tragedy.

Brian Walsh  The S&P is up since Biden took office. Sometimes I think people get caught up in what happened in the last month and they don't see the real picture. So I checked my 401K and it is UP...thanks! Get your head out of Trump's *** and then maybe you can see reality. Good luck (and wash that stink off if you get your head out).
