The app called Truth Social is available for download for Apple users.
Apple users could download Donald Trump’s new social media app on Sunday night, but some users reported getting error messages.
The former US president’s app was said to display error messages for some people who downloaded it. The error appeared when users tried to input their personal information like phone number, e-mail, and birthday.
Those who didn’t receive the error message: “Something went wrong. Please try again” were apparently placed on a waitlist because of “massive demand.”
Trump was denied from social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube last year after platforms thought his messages could spark violence. Trump’s app release debut emphasizes his efforts to come back in the social media space.
When the Trump Media and Technology Group announced the app back in October, they said this was an effort “to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”
On February 15, Donald Trump Jr. posted a screenshot of what is said to be Donald Trump’s first post on the platform. It read, “Get Ready! Your favorite President will see you soon!”
At first look, Truth Social looks like an alternative to Twitter. Even though Twitter and Facebook have denied they suppress conservative content, lots of conservatives have turned towards other options like Gettr, Rumble, and Parler.
According to the Trump Media and Technology Group CEO, Devin Nunes, the app will be available for more users during this week. They expect to make it fully functional by the end of March, at least for people in the US.
