Gettr is a new social media platform created by Jason Miller, a former senior advisor to President Trump. It was launched on July 4, 2021. It has featuress similar to Twitter. Users can write posts on the platform of up to 777 characters in length, upload images, and upload and edit videos that are up to three minutes long.

Getter supports free speech. Gettr's mission statement states that its aims include "fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, challenging social media monopolies, and creating a true marketplace of ideas". However, Gettr may remove of pornographic, threatening, and illegal content.

So far, it appears that Gettr is indeed a free speech platform. Here is a video on Gettr that was banned on twitter. Bare Naked Islam posted an ISIS execution video that serves as a test of free speech on Gettr. 

We will see how the platform develops.
