Learn about the details of the hacking of the Trump adviser's social media platform
Accounts by several famous Republicans, including Miller, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Representative Marjorie Taylor Green, replaced their header photos with the same message: "JubaBag Baghdad was here, Palestine is free." According to the footage, Twitter user JubaBag Baghdad told Insider it's easy. Pages hacked and he did it "just for fun", it appears that most affected profiles are back to normal at the time of publication.
Zachary Petrizzo, a writer at Salon, posted screenshots on Twitter of what the pages looked like, and The Verge quoted Miller as saying: "The issue was discovered and "closed within minutes, and all the hacker was able to do was change some usernames."
He added that Gettr already has "more than half a million users" who have signed up for the platform. Gettr was supposed to officially launch today, July 4, Politico reports that it launched minimally in June, and plans to host three-minute videos, 777-character posts, and live video. The app is available on Google and Apple app stores, with the tagline "Marketplace of Ideas", the app's About section describes it as an "entirely new social media platform founded on the principles of freedom of expression, independent thought, rejection of political censorship, and a" culture of cancellation. It is intended for users 17 years of age or older.
After Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter in January after the Capitol rebellion, he said he intended to launch his own social platform, a blog titled "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump" was launched in May on his website, but was shut down and archived in June. Miller said at the time that the site was not intended to be Trump's social media platform.
Miller told the Wall Street Journal last Friday that Trump wasn't on Gettr at that point. Bloomberg reported that the former president had no plans to join Gettr.
