The real truth is that one term GOP loser Donald Trump's Truth Social tried to stand up to Big Tech, but as usual, he has failed again.

Republican congressman Devin Nunes resigned to help Trump run Truth Social into the ground. This could be one of the saddest things to happen to this couple in a few years. The real harsh truth is that Trump’s social media app follows a long line of failed ventures.

There is an old proverb that says the bigger they are, the harder they fall. What does this really and truly mean to all of us?

Those who are exceptionally large, powerful, or influential will have more to lose when they fail, and their failure will be all the more dramatic or spectacular because of it.

Could a long outage, and leaked internal documents indicate a slow and steady demise of a company we may not recognize?

While the whole world wasn’t watching, was the service and connectivity outage affecting Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and few other services owned by the same company a smash and a slap in the face?

Facebook is a worldwide online social media and global networking service owned by Facebook, but I am over and out of there.

The case for deleting our Facebook account has grown stronger each and every day, so for me, the time came and I went away.
