#GETTR does NOT #GETTRdone, as latest entry in #SocialMedia Wars....

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

[New book from Joseph M. Lenard TERROR STRIKES: / /
and how Christianity is under assault by not just Gijias but THE US LEFT also]

First, let me be clear, I am NOT trying to dissuade anyone from joining #GETTR nor any other #SocialMedia Platform. I am just “reporting” my thoughts and HONEST OBSERVATIONS as a heavy Social Media Platforms user myself and a Retired IT guy…

GETTR, IMO, is nowhere ready for prime-time. Despite the endless hype from @JasonMillerInDC on all the News programs touting GETTR as the latest in the Social Media Platform Wars, there are several problems. Problem 1, first and foremost, it has been 5 days now since I’d joined and reported via the HELP FORM problems with the GETTR system and (it is IT 101) I have not even received a basic AUTO-REPLY to acknowledge receipt of my PROBLEM REPORT(s)!

And, update, I just recently joined #FREETALK45 and they have an even longer list of ISSUES/PROBLEMS so this all goes DOUBLE for them….

And I’m NOT going to just WHINE (do a drive-by) as a Retired IT guy and heavy Social Media Platforms user I will say what should have been OBVIOUS to any/all starting a new Platform, at this point, LEARNED FROM OTHERS FAILURES AND SUCCESSES, and done a BETA-TEST LAUNCH that invited heavy SMPlatform Users and INFORMATION TECH SAAVY FOLKS (like me) like GAB DID (I was lucky to get an INVITE from someone else) and allow those users to slowly help FIX BUGS and INVITE OTHERS to grow the site and TEST IT OVER A LONGER TERM rather than just throw a clearly NOT READY FOR PRIME-TIME WEBSITE / APPLICATION UP!

Now, I am going to cut/paste here-in a few Posts I’ve made on the GETTR system, but before that let me state that IMO if you are going to CLAIM TO BE BETTER THAN TWATTER then you should at least come remotely close to offering the same level of Services of whom you’re criticizing and frankly, again IMO, MORE THAN THE PLATFORM YOU CLAIM YOU ARE A REPLACEMENT/ALTERNATIVE OF/FOR!!

and, see related articles: 

Again, if you read SOCIALMEDIANEVERSURRENDER Article you know I strongly promote people belonging to as many Platforms as possible to MAXIMIZE YOUR COMMENTARY REACH! This Article is about KNOW BEFORE YOU JOIN the GETTR system limitations…. You can see my GETTR TIMELINE at:

Yes, u will c some NEGATIVE COMMENTS from me on/in my Feed about #GETTR launch, as IMO it was/is NOT READY 4 PRIME-TIME. HOWEVER LET ME MAKE CLEAR — Im GLAD 2 c GETTR as yet another alternative Platform 2 #Twatter & #fascistbook (more former, than latter functionaility wise, but it doesnt even come close 2 Twatter standards/functionality yet). Im here, & I intend 2 remain here in HOPES that this Platform will 1 day (sure not there yet) indeed be a better alternative to Twatter (like CloutHub , Mumblit , MINDS , GAB , Parler , Politichatter , & Spreely (all which have their own issues and limitations too) are)! Hope youll look me (@ JLenardDetroit) up on other Platforms.

I sure HOPE that #GETTR will get BETTER in short order… Hoping to see soon from @support (#GettrITTeam #GettrDevelopmentTeam) …
1) Groups, like #GAB, #Spreely, and #MeWe
2) DM/chat like #GAB, #MeWe
3) Data EXPORT like #Twatter and #FascistBook
4) Voice/Video CHAT like #MeWe and #FascistBook
5) IMPORT CONTACTS (email addresses from our CONTACTS to check vs User database) to auto-follow and (ask permission, not steal the data saying WE GIVE BLANKET PERMISSION hidden somewhere in the GETTR TOS) to send invites to our Contacts. (w/ auto rescan monthly for 24 mo’s so as more of our Contacts join we auto-follow, not have to look for them manually over and over) like many of the other Platforms have/allows.
6) more

5 days since my first ISSUE REPORT via #GETTR #HELP report/contact form. STILL HAVENT HEARD DAMN THING BACK! Who else NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE #CUSTOMERSUPPORT here at #GETTR so far? If they weren’t prepared to launch, they should have waited. Hope things get better soon. Yes, I will stay here on/with GETTR, just think it is rather HYPOCRITICAL of Jason to be all over bad-mouthing other Platforms when this one clearly wasn’t fully functional and ready for Prime-time when launched. Like the constant attacks on Twatter about DATA IMPORT/EXPORT when this Platform has ZERO EXPORT ability at all. There is a word for that: #HYPOCRISY! I expected better of/from @JasonMillerInDC and this site. To be FAIR, Parler sure wasn’t ready on their initial launch yrs back either.

OK, the post I kept trying to make as a POST and a REPLY to another Post was at the 777 characters…. So, I scaled it back a couple of characters, cut down on the number of @mentions, and number of #hashtags, and it posted…. SO, NOT SURE BUT THERE IS ONE ISSUE OR ANOTHER….
1) is #GETTR now limiting number of tags in a Post like does?
2) is it improperly adding up characters and even though I was at 777 threshold (as Twatter sometimes malfunctions doing) it wouldn’t let me post it?!?!
3) are there a LIMIT on number of allow @mentions like on #GAB?!?!?
All it returned was NON-SPECIFIC “TROUBLE POSTING PLEASE TRY LATER” garbage message!!

OK, I get it, #GETTR is not #Twitter & @JasonMillerInDC wants an excuse 2 keep attacking #Twatter a

#Publicity / #PRStunt…. BUT, how about if u’r going 2 criticize another Platform U @ LEAST HAVE ANYWHERE CLOSE 2 THE FUNCTIONALITY THEY HAVE U ARE ATTACKING THEM OVER/FOR?!?!? 4 example, u claim here @ GETTR – WE OWN OUR DATA & u r criticizing Twatter 4 not allowing GETTR users 2 #IMPORT our old #Tweets on2 the new GETTR Platform. HOWEVER, when u point a finger @ another 3 other of ur own Fingers point right back ur direction… This case, U BECOME A #HYPOCRITE…. WHERES GETTR FUNCTION 2 ALLOW US 2 EXPORT OUR #GETTRposts? So, b4 u criticize Twatter again, look in the Mirror!


(CONT) and what about IMPORTs from say #CloutHub (only other platform which post limitations would fit in/on

#GETTR) and say import the first 600 characters of our Posts from #Mumblit, #MINDS, #Parler, #Politichatter, and
#Spreely, with then link to original post to read characters of said posts beyond the 600 characters as they allow longer posts.


RE: bringing Tweet History into GETTR… As a retired IT guy, I know, likely you at #GETTR do too, that one can EXPORT (d/l) their Tweet history into an interactive Zipfile from Twatter. Therefore, you could create a function and set of instructions telling folks how to d/l their tweet history to their own HD on a laptop and then use a #GETTR function to IMPORT the zipfile into #GETTR. While I appreciate the FREE SPEECH and challenging Twatter over this: how about we DO THAT, rather than play this game?!?!?

GAB/@aktahi GAB/@BoldDaddy1 I STAND CORRECTED (regarding FAKE ACCOUNTS)!!!

#GETTR does ZERO REAL VERIFICATION anyone can sign up & claim to be whomever they damn well please! and…. I am now starting to notice more of FAKE ACCOUNTS. More importantly, not the OBVIOUS “fake Gorka” and/or others of that stature, but the CLEAR LIBTARDS FAKE ACCOUNTS PRETENDING TO BE “CONSERVATIVES” SAYING OUTLANDISH MANURE TO TRY AND DISCREDIT REAL #CONSERVATIVES. The Left, as always, cannot have HONEST CONVERSATIONS, and these IMPERSONATIONS to peddle misinformation is just the online version of the JAN 6 setup…. #GETTR space restrictions, see full post at:>

[as well as other discussion I have/had re: GETTR startup on my #GAB timeline:]

Hello & THX new Friends. I’ve more Followers already @ #GETTR in 3 days than #Clouthub (or #Mumblit and #MINDS) having been there about a year now. Frankly think people should be on as many Platforms as possible (you can always cut/paste posts across them (see related Hints/Tips section in: to provide as big a reach you can get with your commentary.
Look me up on other sites:… (telegram)

Will people ever learn. This whole SECTION 230 manure is yet another reminder of the ineptness of GOVERNMENT and morons that keep getting Elected and reelected. The LEGAL PROTECTIONS given back in the 1990′s may have MADE SENSE at the time, but NEED SUNSET CLAUSES and if still needed 10 years later, can, could, should be RE-DEBATED and re-upped or LET DIE. For crying out loud, MLB and NFL still have some SPECIAL CARVE OUTS IN LAW that should have long SUN-SETTED! END ALL THESE MORONIC SPECIAL CARVE-OUTS and make organizations / entities STAND OR FALL ON THEIR OWN MERITS!


Wed July 7, 2021….
Ugh, really??? Where the HELL are my FOLLOWINGS going???? Am I also losing FOLLOWERS too?!?!? We know Twatter is purposefully messing with our FOLLOWERS/FOLLOWING Accounts of us Conservatives – WHAT IS THE EXCUSE HERE AT @GETTR??? Several people I’d already followed DISAPPEARED from my list and I’ve had to refollow them.

#GETTR is clearly NOT READY FOR PRIME-TIME! :( Who else has noticed this already?!?!

I will report this via the HELP / CONTACT form, but I’ve heard ZERO (not even basic IT 101 protocol, auto-reply acknowledging receipt of Support request) back from the ones I’ve filed since early on yesterday.
Retired IT guy, massive Soc.Med user


Posted the following on all Soc.Med. Platforms I’m on… I do NOT like DISHONESTY and I’m tired of hearing DISHONEST DISCUSSION from fellow Conservatives….

Can we please STOP THE #LIES that there is NO COMPETITION in #SocialMedia  Platforms (this one is just the latest in long line of startups to provide alternatives). That is NOT to say Twatter and #FASCISTBOOK are not guilty of some anti-trust (RICO) and shouldn’t be REGULATED (end Section 230) but plenty other Platforms do now exist!

[updates.... post(s) from Friend on GAB or elsewhere in response to these criticisms....

@JLenardDetroit @aktahi @Lovemypresident4 @sgross0804 @QBlueSky @Tazz2293 @JasonMillerInDC I went to their site and read their terms for joining, TBH I didn't like it, so before I get socially vested in them, I have to know they won't be monitoring my DM's, as their terms say they have a right to delete any messages including private messages sent amoung members. They also reserve the right to suspend you for anything you say in private messages. This is my biggest problem, it suggest to me they monitor all your correspondence there. I don't mind getting smacked if I'm out of line on a public forum, but my private messages to individuals?

Yes it's their platform and they've chosen this route, so for now, I'll Pass on @Gettr

AND SEMI-RELATED, regarding the whole MONOPLOLY and/or CENSORSHIP issues...

The Left will NOT STOP until they are able to CONTROL the entire Internet, like they CENSOR aspects on Social Media Platforms....

Here we go again... More #democratLIESmatter ... Idiot #Biden , knowing it can't get passed via #Legislation , intends to reinstitute aspects of #NetNeutrality MANURE via another #UNCONSTITUTIONAL #EXECUTIVEORDER ! It is NOT NET NEUTRALITY, it is more misnamed #FASCICRATS over-reach and "tipping the Scales to their Friends/Allies!"
