Co-founder of Wikipedia, Jimmy Wales, introduces a new social website.
Jimmy Wales, the world’s largest content website providing free information on almost every topic on the Internet, introduced the new social website against Facebook and Twitter.
The Social Website introduced by Jimmy Wales called “WT Social” is actually a continuation of the News website he had introduced 2 years ago.
Jimmy Wales introduced the Wikipedia-style news website, ‘Wiki Tribune’, in 2017, the website aims to make the situation around the world more accessible to the audience.
Wales said in one of his tweets that more than one million users created their accounts on his social website.
Six hours or so ago I announced we passed 80,000 users on https://t.co/I8xfkDVdU1 – now we just hit 100,000!
Please share. The world doesn't have to be like this!

He said that because Facebook and Twitter make money in advertising for the content of journalists, there is also the misinformation of consumers about the lure of earnings.
According to Jimmy Wells, there will be no ads on ‘WT Social’, though people on this forum will be demanding ‘donations’.
Jimmy Wales said it was up to the user who provided the ‘donation’ to WT Social, as the website also had the option to skip the donation feature.
He hoped that people on his social information website with no pay and no income would be able to deliver accurate and meaningful information to other people.
