Donald Trump’s “Truth” app with Twitter-like design will launch in February

The Truth Social app, a social media platform built by former US President Donald Trump, will launch for iOS on February 21. The app, designed by Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), has been listed on Apple’s App Store. TMTG is Trump’s new media organization led by former US Congressman Devin Nunes.

The app looks like a Twitter clone, according to the screenshots shown on the App Store listing. The user interface resembles Twitter with the profile page appearing identical to the microblogging website, the Verge reported. Users of the Truth Social app will be able to post, respond to, and even “re-check” other users’ posts and bookmark them. It is not yet known whether the app will be available on Android OS or even the web on February 21.

Trump was a bombastic and controversial Twitter user, often tweeting in the middle of the night or early in the morning. However, Trump was permanently banned from the platform following the Jan.6 U.S. Capitol uprising, where he was accused by many of using his social media platforms to spread disinformation and potentially incite violence.

As Trump tried to recreate his success on Twitter by launching a “social media platform” that was essentially a live commentary from Trump, it was quickly shut down within a month of its launch. Some had said the platform was shut down due to its wrong response, although Trump’s aides said it was shut down because it wasn’t the promised app. Months later, Trump sued Twitter to reestablish his account on the platform.
