According to Apple Inc App Store listing, Truth social is the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) alternative to Twitter and is available for pre-order before going live on President’s Day. The app’s launch will come 13 months after Facebook and Twitter banned Donald Trump for encouraging his supporters to participate in the 6 January attack on the US Capitol.
Twitter users were not impressed by the move with many criticising Apple for promoting Trump’s new app.
Twitter user, @MaasiesMess, slammed Apple and implied that Trump was a traitor.
She said: “Apple I’ve got a problem with you letting a traitorous con, impeached former president launch his own app of lies.”
Another user @SteveCaudell said the launch of the app was an act of revenge.
He said: “Trump just wants to do what he can to hurt Twitter after they permanently blocked him. He is such a vindictive person.”
However, there was also support for the former President, with user @SunilKumarAus arguing that the app will be an alternative to ‘woke’ social media.
He said: “People with millions of followers who can’t stand the wokes are waiting for Trump’s social media app.
“Trump’s app will be very popular with freedom loving people.
“It will not be a conservative-only app. It will be for all who believe in freedom.”
In a similar way to Twitter the app offers features to follow people and trending topics according to demo photos.
Reportedly posts will be known as ‘truths’ rather than tweets.
The launch is the first stage in a three part process for TMTG.
