So far, the reaction from Twitter users seems to be a collective “meh.”
Currently, FTDODJT (a term that absolutely no one is using) allows the former president to post tweet-like posts trashing his enemies, fake news and his humiliating election loss.
However, it doesn’t allow his supporters to post their sycophantic responses ― yet.
“This is just a one-way communication,” an inside source told FoxNews. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”
The page launched just one day before Facebook’s independent Oversight Board is expected to uphold the site’s indefinite ban on Trump, according to NPR.
Although it appears to lack the bugs associated with Frank, the social media platform recently launched by Trump supporter Mike Lindell, many people say “From The Desk Of Donald J. Trump” is more of a blast from the past than the future of social media.

Is it called putting out inane press releases that every journalist immediately tweets anyway? https://t.co/Xuz2qIM4eM
