Donald Trump’s new social network, ‘Truth Social’, can already be downloaded in the (American) App Store of Apple.
For the time being, it is not known when the app will also appear in the Google Play Store, but it is expected that ‘Truth Social’ will be fully operational by the end of March. The network comes in response to the ex-president’s ban on Twitter, among other things.
“We’re going to start opening the app to people on Apple this week,” Devin Nunes, head of Trump Media & Technology Group, the parent company of the new network, said during an interview with Fox News. “I think we will be fully operational by the end of March, at least in the US.”
“Trump presented truth Social” as an alternative to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, from which he was barred after the storming of the Capitol on January 6 last year. Since Monday, the app has been available to download from the (American) Apple App Store. When creating an account, some users were already told that they were placed on a waiting list “due to enormous interest”.
“The time has come for the truth,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. just last week. He also posted a photo of his father on the network with the message: “Get ready; your favourite president will be welcoming you soon.”
