On Sunday, it was reported that Trump’s new social media venture called Truth Social will finally arrive on the Apple App Store for public users on Feb. 21st, and that’s exactly what is happening now.
The application was available to download shortly before midnight ET and those who have pre-ordered the app also got it automatically installed on their devices.
However, it was reported that some users either had issues registering for an account or were added to a waitlist with the message “Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist.”
The app has been available for people invited to use it during its test phase, Reuters previously reported.
The new venture came after the former US President was ousted by major social media providers such as Twitter, Meta’s Facebook, and Alphabet’s YouTube over the Jan. 6th riot at the US Capitol.
The venture was announced back in 2021 and after getting some investment funds, the company is now being led by a former Republican US Representative Devin Nunes.
The new social media platform is said to have been designed to look similar to Twitter, especially in its functionalities, and has features such as direct messages or DM and the ability to block users.
Truth Social will be joining other small social media ventures rebelling against mainstream social media platforms which have been accused of intentionally silencing those with opposing points of view.
