How do I view Truth Social without signing up?

I want to see Donald Trump's "Truths" on my laptop without signing up for Truth Social, is there an type service that proxies his stuff so I can just view it? Bonus point if there's a way to view Twitter feeds without having to signup and being nagged to sign up after just scrolling a little bit.

Best answer: I'm able to view Trump's posts on the website without signing up or hitting any kind of wall: @realDonaldTrump | Truth Social. I do have uBlock Origin turned on though.

Response by poster: Thanks! I tried /realdonaldtrump without the asterix and it didn't work.

Best answer: For Twitter, try Nitter at or any of the other instances from this list.

You can also currently view Twitter without being logged in! Just hit the log in button when prompted, then X out of that window and you will be returned to whatever you were browsing when the nag window popped up.

Holy cow, KatiaDragon, you are right! Jeez-O-Pete, I have been struggling around that stupid Twitter popup for like a full year now -- there was even an entire thread here on AskMefi about it a few months ago (apparently not tagged with "twitter" so can't find it now)., private/incognito windows, scrolling really fast past the "popup spot", so many coping mechanisms just because I don't want to have to login and feed the algorithms, rather just read anonymously. The popup doesn't have an "X" on it, but all this time we didn't know that you could just do what you described. Thank you!

Two-plus weeks later and I still can't believe I didn't know about the KatiaDragon's workaround. I had been stuck on that "you should be logged into Twitter" popup for a YEAR. Now I know that with two clicks I can resume reading!
