Donald Trump shares first post on his own ‘Truth’ social media platform


Former US President Donald Trump is now sharing posts on a social media network he founded, “Truth Social”, more than a year after being banned from Facebook and Twitter. Donald Trump Jr. shared a screenshot of the former president’s first post on the social media site on Tuesday, which is expected to be posted later this month.

“Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon,” Donald Trump Jr. posted on the new platform, which serves as the Trump Media & Technology Company’s Twitter alternative. In an interview with Newsmax, Devin Nunes, CEO of former President Donald Trump’s social media company, said it’s currently available for pre-order and will go live in March.

Truth Social is very similar to Twitter

The network is essentially identical to Twitter and allows users to follow both people and news topics. Instead of tweets, posts will be called “truths.” Following the attack on the US Capitol building by some Trump fans last year, his Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts were suspended. Following the ban, he claimed he would launch his own social networking platform to fight what he called the tyranny of big tech.

“I’m excited to be sending my first truth about TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give everyone a voice. I’m excited to soon start sharing my thoughts about TRUTH Social and fighting back against Big Tech, “, remarked the former American president in a press release published by the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG).

According to the Associated Press, Trump, who used Twitter to slam opponents and deliver his own news frequently during his presidency, emailed remarks almost as often as he had previously. According to Apple’s current App Store listing, former President Donald Trump’s new social networking platform, Truth Social, is set to launch on Presidents Day, February 21.

Additionally, users will be able to create an avatar for their profile and follow other users. Truth Social, like other social media sites, will have a “feed” which contains posts from various people that a user can follow. According to the photographs provided to the listing, the app will look quite similar to platforms like Twitter.
