Trump's 'TRUTH Social' Platform to Ban All Sexual Content, Nudity

PALM BEACH, Fla. — TRUTH Social, the upcoming social media platform being developed by the Trump Media & Technology Group, has teamed up with automated AI solutions company Hive to preemptively block all “sexual content” and nudity from the service.

TRUTH Social was created by former President Donald Trump and is led by former U.S. Representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) as CEO. Trump and Nunes, according to a Fox Business report, have said the social network will be “up and running by the end of the first quarter of 2022.”

Reps for the Palm Beach-based Trump Media & Technology Group claim that the deployment of the Hive algorithms is an attempt to anticipate “malign actors” trying to “target the site and attempt to ‘flood’ the platform with ‘illegal content,’ especially during and immediately after their formal launch.”

The San Francisco-based Hive — which previously upgraded Parler’s moderation to make it Apple Store-compliant — provides “automated content moderation” through “cloud-based artificial intelligence for understanding images, videos and text content,” Fox Business reported.

"We want to be very family-friendly,” Nunes said. “We want this to be a very safe place, and we are focused on making sure any illegal content is not on the site.”

"We want to be the most family-friendly site,” he added.

'This is Not Political'

Hive co-founder and CEO Kevin Guo told Fox Business that his company’s AI will be automated “to ensure sexually-explicit content, and posts that include violence, bullying, hate speech and spam never make it to the platform.”

Guo said the Trump group asked Hive to create technology that could “identify content like ‘nudity, drugs, violence, hate speech, spam and bullying.’”

"This is not political," Guo insisted. "These are not things that are left or right or have any political baggage ... Our moderation is based on these core concepts that, we think, are universal.”

Guo said TRUTH Social’s moderation approach is focused on "making sure" the platform can "identify this type of content and proactively prevent it from reaching their users. They are not doing things like trying to censor any political talk — we don’t have models for that or models for misinformation. We focus on a problem that is more objective."

According to Nunes, TRUTH Social will be "open for all ideas, all political debate from the left to the right. We’re not going to censor anybody because they have a different opinion about, for example, a COVID vaccine."

TRUTH Social is available for pre-order in the App Store.
