Team Trump’s New Social App Looks Exactly Like Twitter

  • Team Trump unveiled a new social media app Thursday called GETTR.
  • But the app looks a lot like Twitter, whose exile of Trump angered many on the right.
  • GETTR’s home screen, posts, and user profiles all look almost identical to Twitter’s.

Another Twitter alternative has cropped up from the right as conservatives shun — and are kicked off of — mainstream social media apps.

Team Trump rolled out a beta form of GETTR on Thursday, as Politico reported, a response to what many on the right say is censorship of conservatives on large internet platforms. Both Twitter and Facebook have exiled former President Donald Trump over his role in the January 6 Capitol insurrection.

Insider downloaded the app to check it out and noticed something peculiar — it looks a lot like Twitter, one of the platforms that conservatives have criticized.

Herald’s Women in Business: Rosburg proud of team behind Alerus Center’s success

Rosburg, general manager of the Alerus Center, moved to Grand Forks in 2017 from Casper, Wyo. It has been a positive move, not only because it brought her closer to family and where she grew up in Minnesota, but because she has seen how impactful the Alerus Center is in people’s lives.

She doesn’t like to toot her own horn, but Rosburg has been a big part of that success.

She becomes teary-eyed whenever the lights go down, the music turns up, and the audience is on their feet. It is adrenaline, yes, but it also is because she knows firsthand how much time and work goes into making an event happen.

An example: Luke Combs, who was scheduled to perform at the center in 2020 but was rescheduled for this coming Sept. 17 because of the pandemic. The booking broke records for tickets sold, something that happened on Rosburg’s

Criticality Of Team Play For A Meaningful Civil Service- Madhukar Gupta

My advisor at Harvard used to take me out for lunch every month. Once he candidly asked me, ‘what is wrong with you guys’? Meaning, as to what was wrong with us in general in the Civil Service. I made a few guesses, but was way off the mark. You guys are never trained to be team players. His considered view was ‘Civil servants play only as individual players and look for personal glorification and not for their state or country’.

Then he mentioned his professional experience of working with a Chief Minister in South India on a famous IT project. He narrated how over dinner ten officers will not only have their own take on issues, but would go to great lengths to run each other down. Also, they would do so not in a discreetly, but in a way which could be thought of as direct and unprofessional.
