Former US President Donald Trump is going to launch his social media app. Donald Trump “Truth Social” app is “expected” to be launch on February 21 (Presidents Day in the U.S.). It is currently available for pre-order on Apple’s App Store. According to Reuters, ‘Truth Social’ is being brought as an alternative to Twitter.
Donald Trump Truth Social app is more like Twitter app
Truth Social app appears a lot like Twitter, as per the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) website and the screenshots in the App Store. It includes Twitter like main feeds and profile pages; posts (or truths) with icons for replies, retweets (or re-truths), likes, and sharing; as well as bottom app deck with home, search, notification, and message icons.
According to the demo photo of the app, just like Twitter, people and trending topics can be followed in this app too. It’s not surprising, considering Twitter was the former President’s preferred social media platform until he was banned on it.
According to Truth Social’s website, it appears that its availability will be limited to iOS users. It is not confirm when it will launch its app for Android devices and web. Last month, Trump said the Truth Social app was launched in beta for “invited guests only”.
The US Capitol was attacked by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, claiming fraud in the 2020 US presidential elections. Donald Trump was accused of encouraging his supporters to participate in the attack. After this Twitter and Facebook banned Donald Trump from their platform. After 13 months of this incident, Donald Trump is coming with his social media app.
Trump’s new media venture is also going to bring many more projects
The first phase of the development of TMTG is expected to be completed with the launch of the app. According to the company’s website. TMTG will soon launch a video-on-demand service with a focus on entertainment, news, and podcasts. It will be subscription-based. There are also reports that TMTG is also looking to launch a podcast network. Based on the stock price of Digital World Acquisition, TMTG is valued at $5.3 billion (approximately Rs.39,430 crore). It rose 20 percent after Reuters reported the app was listed on the App Store.
