MELANIA Trump has announced her ‘social media home’ — and it’s not her husband’s app.

The former first lady will use Parler as her social media platform of choice, the company claimed on Wednesday.

The announcement comes despite her husband Donald Trump‘s plan to launch a rival social media platform next month called TRUTH Social.

Melania previously hosted her NFT artwork sales with Parler’s help and now has a synergistic relationship with the platform, according to the network’s press release via Substack.

“I am excited and inspired by free speech platforms that give direct communication to people worldwide,” Melania said, according to Parler.

“Parler has been on the forefront of utilizing Web3 technology and empowers its users to foster productive discourse.”

Parler’s CEO George Farmer expressed excitement about the collaboration in the release.

“Parler is excited to take this step forward with her and continues to build out its product offering to support her professional evolution as one of the world’s leading icons,” Farmer said.

It’s unclear what Melania’s “exclusive communications with Parler” means for TRUTH Social, whose release date has been delayed until the end of March.

The former president originally wanted to join Parler, but the app’s former CEO claimed that the app was pulled in an attempt to keep Trump off of social media.

Donald decided to launch his own social platform in an attempt to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”

The news of TRUTH Social’s release came after Trump’s team launched conservative social platform GETTR back in July.

GETTR claims its mission is to “promote common sense…challenge social media monopolies, and create a true marketplace of ideas.”

After Trump’s former aide Jason Miller released GETTR, Trump put out a statement denouncing being associated with the app, writing: “I am not on any social media platform in any way, shape, or form, including Parler, GETTR, Gab, etc.”

“When I decide to choose a platform or build or complete my own, it will be announced. Thank you!”

How does Parler work?

The “free speech platform” does not require much moderation and declines to fact-check its users.

The Parler website states: “Customize what you see and who you interact with by filtering out sensitive material, bots (or accounts that identify as bots) – or even particular keywords you’d rather not see in comments to your parleys.”

“Whatever you’d rather not see on your profile or feed, we give you the tools you need to do your own ‘shadow-banning’ – while still leaving everyone else free to decide for themselves what they wish to see on their profiles and feeds.”

However, critics often refer to it as a “far right-friendly site” that does not regulate harmful content.

Melania can be found at parler.com/MelaniaTrump, or by searching Parler for the username MelaniaTrump.
