0

As he promised, Donald Trump released his own social media app known as Twitt, sorry, TRUTH Social. The app was launched on the Apple App Store on February 21 in the United States and automatically downloaded for Apple users who had pre-purchased the app. February 21 is also celebrated as Presidents Day in the United States.

The app is currently only available for download in the United States and it is unclear whether this app will be accessible in India in the future. (I don’t know if someone is missing, tbh).

The launch of TRUTH Social marks Trump’s return to the world of social media after his accounts were banned on mainstream social media platforms Twitter and Facebook. Trump has been banned from Twitter indefinitely while his Facebook account has been disabled for two years, starting in 2021.

Platforms such as Instagram and Reddit have also banned Trump. The reason is that the former US president is widely believed to have posted social media messages that incited a riot at the Capitol in Washington on January 6, 2021.

This was after the November 2020 presidential election, when Democratic candidate Joe Biden won against Trump.

In an announcement, Trump Media & Technology Group announced its intent behind building this app. TRUTH Social intends to “fight against big Silicon Valley tech companies” for silencing opposing voices in the United States.

In the same announcement, Trump also called himself America’s “favorite president” and that the group was founded to give everyone a voice. The group is led by former Republican United States Representative Devin Nunes.

During FoxNews‘ Sunday Morning Futures, Nunes said: ‘Honestly, it’s just really, really emotional for me to see people who are on the platform having their voices canceled – and that’s our main focus here is to give people back their voice.”

Nunes also added, “…which is the opposite of a Silicon Valley tech freak who tells people what they want to think and decides who can or can’t be on the platform. form. We really take the opposite approach, which values ​​our customers.”

Although not available in India, the app is said to be very similar to Twitter. The messages will be known as “truths” and will operate in the same format as tweets. Truth will also have a reply, share and like button right below and users can follow trending topics. Basically, it’s just like Twitter.

To say the internet is obsessed with the app would be an understatement. As with every Trump announcement, the internet is once again divided.
