Former advisor for President Donald Trump Jason Miller founded this platform, which launched on July 4, 2021. Privately held, the company bills itself as "a marketplace of ideas," "champions free speech" and "rejects cancel-culture," according to its website.
GETTR, which was "created to combat online censorship," now has over 2 million users, according to its About page. The company boasts that it gives users the ability to edit and add filters to images, post videos up to three minutes long, craft posts up to 777 characters, edit videos within the app and livestream up to 60 minutes.
Upon the app's launch, leftists started trying to cancel it. The Daily Beast ran an article in July 2021, a day after GETTR's launch, noting supposed ties between Miller and anti-Chinese communist billionaire Guo Wengui, who is also friends with former Trump advisor Steve Bannon. Even though Miller said some initial seed money for GETTR came from Guo's family foundation, The Beast nonetheless reported, "while Miller downplayed Guo’s connection, sites associated with the billionaire have suggested that Gettr is Guo’s brainchild."
