Jason Miller - Can Elon Musk Fix Twitter or is GETTR the Future for Free Speech
With Elon Musk in the headlines with his offer to take over Twitter, there is no one better placed to discuss this subject than Jason Miller. Jason is the CEO of GETTR, the fastest growing social media platform in history which has sought to be the new home for free speech. His background working within the Trump administration in the White House gives him political connections that most could only dream of so he has taken that knowledge and understanding and used it to build GETTR into an impressive social media platform. What does Musk's cash offer for Twitter mean for free speech online? Is he serious or is this one of his power plays to let off some steam before heading back to the real business of building up Tesla and Space X? Can Twitter actually be fixed or are platforms like GETTR the only way to allow open and honest conversations on social media? Join us to hear Jason's thoughts on all of this.
Jason Miller is the CEO of GETTR social media and was the former senior advisor to President Donald J. Trump and is also a contributor at Newsmax TV. He launched the free speech social media platform in July 2021, and under his leadership it reached 1M users in only three days – the fastest growth for a social media platform of all time, it now has more than 4M users globally and comes with a promise to never deplatform or censor anyone for their political beliefs. The importance of it’s emergence as a cancel-free platform was highlighted at the end of Jason’s September trip to participate in CPAC Brazil, as he attempted to fly home, he and his traveling party were detained for three hours and questioned about the purpose of their visit and although they were not accused of any wrongdoing and eventually released, the episode proved that enemies of freedom are everywhere. Before launching GETTR, Jason served as senior advisor to President Trump, where he worked on his successful impeachment defence team, and before that he served as senior advisor in the 2020 campaign and senior communications advisor in 2016 and also served as communications director in the transition team. In addition to his earlier work managing campaigns for U.S. House, U.S. Senate and Governor, as well as serving as a chief of staff on Capitol Hill, he has more than two decades of corporate communications, public relations and policy expertise advising clients on how to deal with the intersection of politics, policy, financial markets and the media. Jason currently serves as a Contributor for Newsmax TV, offering political analysis and insights for the Make America Great Again movement, the 2022 mid-term elections and policy debates in Washington, D.C. A native of Seattle, Washington, he is a graduate of The George Washington University.
