Can't keep a good man down, isn't that how the old saying goes? Ever since former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook, he promised to build and launch his own platform and that is exactly what he has done.

Yesterday, Trump's new social media app became available in the Apple App Store. What makes this app so platform so different?  According to Apple's App Store:

 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!

What exactly is Truth Social's "Big Tent" approach?


Think of a giant outdoor event tent at your best friend's wedding. Who's there? The combination of multiple families from all over the United States, and the world. Uncle Jim from Atlanta is a proud libertarian. Aunt Kellie from Texas is a staunch conservative. Your cousin John from California is a die-hard liberal. And guess what? They're all together to have an amazing time and share their different viewpoints on the world. Although we don't always agree with each other, we welcome these varied opinions and the robust conversation they bring.


Let your voice be heard. Sign up, join the conversation, and share your unique opinion by posting a Truth, Re-Truth, photo, news story, or video link to communicate with your friends, customers, and the world. Stay informed about breaking news while staying directly connected with the people who influence you – don't be shocked if they take your Truth viral!


Key Features

Notifications - Stay engaged as you build a following. See who's following you and who's interacting with your Truth's.

The social media app looks very familiar to Twitter and both have a T logo. Of course Trump had to take a shot a them.

Sadly most people were met with error messages yesterday because so many people were trying to download the app.  I myself got put into a waiting line to have my account created behind 497,182 people.
