Trump’s Social Media Platform Has Finally Launched On iOS

According to the posts seen by Reuters, Truth Social will stick to the Twitter formula. People can use the network to post "Truths," which are the platform's equivalent to tweets, and it is possible to reshare posts on one's timeline to increase their reach.

Trump’s Social Media Platform Has Finally Launched On iOS.

According to CNET, Donald Trump’s Twitter-like social media platform, Truth Social, has launched on the App Store. This backs up a statement from a verified account associated with Truth Social chief product officer “Billy B,” who advised people to mark February 21st on their calendars.

“We’re currently set for release in the Apple App Store for Monday, February 21st,” he said, according to Reuters. Incidentally, the 21st marks the Presidents’ Day holiday in the US.

The launch will mark Trump’s return to social media, assuming the network avoids a hiccup like the one it experienced last fall when a prankster claimed the “donaldjtrump” username and posted an image of a defecting pig.

Following the January 6th attack on the US Capitol, Twitter and Facebook banned the former president.

Prior to the removal of a test version of Truth Social last fall, the website’s code revealed that it ran on a mostly unmodified version of open-source software Mastodon.

The Software Freedom Conservancy charged The Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) in October with violating Mastodon’s AGPLv3 license by failing to share the platform’s source code. Two weeks later, the website added a dedicated section containing a ZIP archive of its source code.

According to the posts seen by Reuters, Truth Social will stick to the Twitter formula. People can use the network to post “Truths,” which are the platform’s equivalent to tweets, and it is possible to reshare posts on one’s timeline to increase their reach.

The executive who responded to beta users’ questions said the company was working on a verification policy that would be published “in the coming weeks.” He also mentioned that TMTG was working on a direct messaging feature that would be released later.

Truth Social has indeed appeared in the iOS App Store, though some users are reportedly having trouble creating accounts, according to CNET. Some are receiving an error message when they try to enter a birthdate, email or phone number, while others say they were placed on a waitlist.
