The release date for former President Donald Trump’s social network, Truth Social, has been delayed. Although the social media app is listed on the App Store with an expected launch date of February 21st, The New York Times reported that the release has been pushed to March.
Truth Social was supposed to go live on Presidents’ Day
The Trump’s Twitter-clone social media app was expected to release on Presidents’ Day but the release is pushed forward due to an investigation into a proposed merger of its parent company, the Trump Media & Technology Group, with a publicly-traded blank-check company. Although, the beta testers are available to around 500 users. Liz Willis, correspondent and vice president of operations at Right Side Broadcasting Network, told the newswire that she had received an email on Tuesday saying, “T Media Tech LLC has invited you to test Truth Social.” According to Willis, she was able to download the app and users have been posting on to the platform for the past 24 hours.
The Trump’s social media platform looks a lot like Twitter which was Trump’s preferred social media platform before he was permanently banned from there due to the risk of further incitement of violence. The former president also launched a blog in May, which was shut down in less than a month.
Trump made his first post
Donald Trump has recently made his first post on his social media platform, the “truth” was posted by Trump’s verified account, which reads; “Get Ready! Your favourite President will see you soon!” According to Reuters, Trump’s upcoming social media platform has 317 followers. Trump Media and Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes announced on Thursday that TRUTH Social was still undergoing beta testing and would release by the end of March.
