Should You Get Trump’s New Social Media ‘Truth Social’ ?

By Movieguide® Staff

Last week former US President Donald Trump released his social media platform, “Truth Social.”

The application shot to the No. 1 spot on Apple’s app store but notified registered users that they would be put on a waitlist due to the “massive demand.”

Trump advertised the alternative social media, which most closely resembles Twitter in regards to its UI, as a “family-friendly” platform dedicated to the safety of its users.

Trump, who experienced censorship at the hands of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, also said that Truth Social would stand up to “the tyranny of Big Tech.”

Movieguide® previously reported:

The company’s CEO, Devin Nunes, told Fox Business: “We want to be very family-friendly, we want this to be a very safe place, and we are focused on making sure any illegal content is not on the site.”

The Trump Media & Technology Group partnered with Hive, which provides automated content moderation across images, videos, text, and audio.

“We want people to have a good experience on the platform, and they are not going to have a good experience if there is illegal activity on the platform, so that is the real necessity for this,” Nunes explained. “We want to be the most family-friendly site.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the app, owned by Trump Media & Technology Group, hired former Rep. Devin Nunes as the chief executive.

The app is free for iPhone users but is not yet available for android.

A Movieguide® staff member successfully created an account on Feb. 21—when the app launched to the public—but was put on a waitlist at #191,407. Four days later, that number has not been updated.

Nunes said that users could expect the app in March in a previous announcement.
