Truth Social Will Be Donald Trump’s Primary Social Media Platform

By Movieguide® Contributor

Donald Trump recently announced that he will post on the new social media platform Truth Social before posting anywhere else. The app has made the former US President an important component of their marketing strategy. 

The information comes after a licensing agreement between Trump and Truth Social was released that outlines their deal. 

According to the agreement, Trump cannot post on any other social media platform for six hours after posting to Truth Social. The only exception is for posts with political messaging, political fundraising or get-out-the vote efforts. 

Trump’s company, Trump Media & Technology Group Corp., is Truth Social’s parent company. The app is the first product created by the company. 

Movieguide® previously reported on the efforts to launch Truth Social: 

Former U.S. President Donald Trump officially launched his new social media platform, Truth Social, on Apple’s App Store in America.

“What makes Truth Social different!? We are a social media platform that is free from political discrimination. Join us and share, communicate, and have fun!” the app’s description reads.

The app went live on Feb. 20, at around midnight, and automatically downloaded to users’ phones who pre-ordered Truth Social.

The app skyrocketed to No. 1 on the App Store, but users who did not pre-order the app were put on a waitlist before using Truth Social.

However, users are still able to create an account. The notification reads: “Your account has been created successfully! Thank you for Joining! Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist. We love you, and you’re not just another number to us. But your waitlist number is below.”

Trump announced plans to launch a social media alternative after Twitter and Facebook banned his accounts following the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots.

In a previous February announcement, Trump emphasized Truth Social’s safety features. The app also forces users to enter their date of birth and does not allow minors to use the platform.
