A beta version of the new TRUTH Social network, announced by former US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, has been attacked by hackers.
The New York Times reported on Friday, citing the perpetrators of the computer attack.
Although TRUTH Social is not yet available to users, hackers claim to have gained access to its beta version. They created a number of fake accounts in it, including the account of Trump himself, and posted offensive photos in it.
The hackers chose to remain anonymous, but they claim to be linked to the Anonymous group. According to them, the computer attack on Trump’s social network was part of their “war against hate”, as well as their desire to have fun.
Trump revealed his plan to launch his own social network on Wednesday. He said he wanted to counter the tyranny of the big tech companies. It was announced that the beta version of “Invited Guests” is scheduled to launch in November.
The platform will be owned by Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), which also intends to launch a subscription service that includes entertainment programming.
Trump’s accounts on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks were blocked after an attack by his supporters on Capitol Hill in Washington on Jan. 6.
Critics blamed Trump for instigating the attack on the Capitol by putting it in violation of the rules of the internet. Shortly before the attack, he made unsubstantiated allegations of fraud in the presidential election, which he lost.
