After being banned and suspended from social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook last year, former US President Donald Trump has started his own platform, Truth Social. On Android or iPhone, learn how to connect to Trump’s Truth Social app.
The upcoming social media platform was supposed to arrive in February, but recent developments suggest that the launch is just getting delayed. Truth Social will majorly focus on encouraging “free and open interaction” by acting as a rival site/app to other social media platforms.
Everything you need to know about Truth Social, its features, pricing and the quickest way to connect to the platform on any device is here.
What is Truth Social media App?
Truth Social is an upcoming social media platform of Donald Trump and is owned by Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). It is already available on the Apple App Store through T Media Tech LLC, which is also a subsidiary of TMTG. The makers have not yet revealed the Android version of the app.
The first beta of the Truth Social app was released in November 2021 to a very limited list of invited users. As per the description given on its website, it will be an app that will facilitate open, free and honest conversations across the world without differences in political viewpoints.
Truth Social is thought to be America’s “Big Tent” for promoting truth and free expression, which is also the country’s constitution’s principal objective.
Donald Trump also said in a statement during the launch, “I created TruthSocial and TMTG to stand up to the atrocities of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a sizable Twitter presence, but your favourite US president has been silenced.”
Features of Truth Social App
“Truth will compete with the Social Liberal Media Consortium and battle against the Big Tech firms,” according to the former president. The first few glimpses of the platform are also suggesting the same.
The platform’s layout looks very similar to Twitter, and a very similar set of features are available.
The Daily Mail reports that Trump already has an account on the platform. His son, Donald Jr. shared a screenshot on Twitter, revealing the former president’s first post on the upcoming social media platform. You can watch it below:

What is the release date of the Truth Social App?
The Truth Social app is currently in its beta testing phase as the first beta was released back in November 2021. App Store details suggested that it was to be released on February 21, 2022. However, the launch has just been delayed.
So Truth Social (a misnomer if ever there was one) was set to launch February 21, but now that’s been delayed for a month (at least). Devin Nunes is doing a crackjack job.
