ICYMI: GETTR Expands Its Presence in Brazil with CEO Jason Miller Attending Bicentennial Independence Day Celebration

In honor of Brazil’s 200th year of independence, GETTR Chief Executive Officer Jason Miller joined hundreds of thousands of patriotic Brazilians in the streets of Rio de Janeiro on September 7 to celebrate the hard-fought freedoms in the country.

Social media platform GETTR hosted a massive presence at the celebration on Avenida Atlantica, boasting a giant inflatable sign encouraging individuals to continue their fight for free speech online.

In an exclusive interview with Folha De S. Paula, Miller explained the importance of GETTR’s mission across the globe:

"I fundamentally believe that free speech is a divine right," says Miller. "The ability to communicate, to share opinions, is what separates us from animals and what makes us unique. It's also what separates democracies from authoritarian states."

“According to Miller, of the 6.5 million Gettr users, about 900,000 are Brazilians. The figure leaves Brazil behind the US, which has half of the total accounts, and ahead of the UK, with 10%. The site is now fully translated into Portuguese and was given the green and yellow colors on the 7th of September.”
