Pro-Trump Social Media Platform GETTR Hacked Shortly After Launch


A Twitter-like platform, GETTR was launched on July 4 by Jason Miller, who served as a spokesperson for former U.S. President Donald Trump. The social media service claims to welcome people from all over the world and to promote freedom of speech.

Both the site and the GETTR mobile app highly resemble Twitter, and the platform even allows users to sign up using their Twitter accounts, claiming to be able to import content from Twitter.

The site, however, was opened to the public with unresolved security issues that were immediately exploited by hackers to gain access to the data of those who had already registered on GETTR.
