'Gettr', the "alternative" social media platform created by the Trump team and announced on Thursday, is due to launch on the US Independence Day, 4 July. Some netizens have already had the chance to check the platform out, and are getting interesting results.
On Thursday, the Internet observed a new social media platform, 'Gettr', to be headed by a former spokesman for Donald Trump, Jason Miller. A platform looking similar to Twitter, which ousted Trump in January, it has been touted as promoting "common sense", "freedom of speech" and an online community to "fight cancel culture".
Some who have already had a chance to catch a sneak peek at the platform, however, immediately flocked to Twitter to giggle about it. They detailed many reasons: starting with the name of the new social network and continuing with its contents. 
One of the users' favorite jokes was how Gettr appeared to have "copied" almost everything from Twitter... including its treatment of accounts related to Donald Trump.
​One user was attentive enough to spot similarities in the code of Gettr and Twitter.
​Others could not miss the opportunity to laugh at the name of the platform and offer possible meanings.
​Some chuckled about how Trump might feel about people mocking Gettr from Twitter, as  the latter no longer welcomes the previous US president who has been accused of inciting the deadly 6 January Capitol riot. Trump's involvement in Gettr remains unclear.
​Only time will tell if Gettr will manage to become an alternative for what Trump characterizes as the "Radical Left Big Tech" mainstream social media platforms, which, according to conservatives, are "silencing" them and exercising "censorship".
