After leaving the White House, Trump founded the conservative media company that developed the app.
The more images of the app appear, the more Truth Social seems to be a direct clone of Twitter. On this social network, Trump preferred to communicate with his supporters until the moment he was kicked off the platform.
On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted what appears to be a screenshot of a future app containing the former president’s first post on the service. “Get ready! Soon you will meet your beloved president!” Trump Sr. said in a message.
An enlarged screenshot of the same post, shared by Right Side Broadcasting CEO Liz Willis, provided much more information about the app. In particular, you could see the page structure there, which is very similar to Twitter, down to the interaction buttons under each post.
Liz Willis wrote in a separate tweet that the only thing she can say about the app is “you’ll all LOVE it!”.
Willis told Reuters that she received an email on Tuesday saying that T Media Tech LLC had invited her to test Truth Social. About 500 beta testers are now testing an early version of Truth Social, according to Reuters, citing two unnamed sources.
On Tuesday, YouTube alternative Rumble, popular among supporters of the conservative party that ran Trump, announced its first post on Truth Social, saying its technology will help display video on the new platform.
The Truth Social App Store page still lists the expected official launch date. It is due to take place on President’s Day, which is celebrated in the US on February 21, although the actual release may come later.
The app’s upcoming release comes one year after major social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube banned Trump from their platforms in the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol riot.
After leaving the White House, Trump founded the conservative media company behind Truth Social. It was named Trump Media and Technology Group.
