Donald Trump's longtime spokesperson and noted lawsuit loser Jason Miller is reportedly planning to enter a cocoon and re-emerge as an even fouler kind of insect: a social media tycoon.

According to Business Insider, a "person familiar with the matter" says that Trump is already interviewing potential replacements for Miller, who will remain on his team in some capacity but will now be spending most of his time at a company that "currently owns a social media platform that Trump is considering using." A source "familiar with the plans" described said company as involved with "next-generation " technology that "blows away anything else currently on the market."

There's not a long list of social networks Trump could be considering joining—he's banned pretty much everywhere, for now, leaving only fringe networks like far-right sites Parler and Gab—and fewer still that could be described as powered by amazing technical prowess. Previously the Wall Street Journal reported top contenders included Facebook/Twitter clone CloutHub and a site called FreeSpace, relatively minuscule sites that have tried to attract conservatives angry about supposed censorship on mainstream destinations. But our next best guess that Miller is joining some kind of blockchain-powered social media site that bills itself as a free-speech utopia.
