Trump Social Media Site Goes Live on App Store

When Donald Trump was arbitrarily stricken from Twitter near the tail-end of his first term as President, many Americans felt as though the first Amendment had just taken a rather sizable punch straight to the gut.

Sure, Trump said a lot of things that made a lot of people angry – on both sides of the aisle.  His policy points had the liberal left coming down with a barely-fictional affliction called “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, and his pontification on the failure of the American nation at the hands of the Democrats angered his base on the right side of the aisle.

But Twitter, the nation’s premier public forum, pulled its “we’re a private company card”, and banned the sitting President from the platform.

From that day, Trump vowed to create something freer and truer than Twitter.  On Presidents’ Day, that promise came to fruition.

Former President Donald Trump’s TRUTH Social appears to be widely available on Apple’s App Store, not just to Americans who pre-ordered it.

The app appeared just before midnight, ahead of the schedule FOX Business previously reported. A source familiar with the rollout had told FOX Business Sunday that the company is operating under a staged-approach, and explained that TRUTH Social will populate with new users who pre-ordered the app over the next 10 days. Those who pre-oredered the app from the Apple Store would be able to access it at midnight.

The app includes features such as a custom profile, a search tool, video capabilities, messaging, and a dark mode, according to its link on the App Store.

The platform has already attracted a number of notable users.

In the last week, TRUTH Social has welcomed a number of prominent users, including influencers, politicians and celebrities—as well as Americans who were first in line to pre-order the app through the Apple App Store.

So far, the app’s prominent users include Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Dan Bongino, Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk, rapper Kodak Black, country music singer Travis Tritt and more.

Twitter stocked closed down over 3% on Friday as rumors of Truth’s launch began to swirl.  The stock market was closed on Monday for Presidents’ Day.
