What would you do if someone blocks you on social media? As a normal human being, you would stop contacting that person. But if you are Donald Trump, you would probably make your own social media app. Yes, exactly that happened. Donald Trump, the former President of one of the greatest countries- the United States of America, launched his own social media application, Truth Social, after getting kicked out of Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter several times.
Truth Social is a social media platform launched by Donald Trump and Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). The site launched on February 21, 2022. The application is just like Twitter except your personal information is more at stake. Despite this, it hit No. 1 in the App Store’s top charts early Monday. The app is so in demand that many people are facing problems in even making an account as it is showing errors. Also messages like “Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist,” read the message, which included a waitlist number.
However, it is difficult to say that the app will give competition to the old and original Twitter as we believe there’s no replacement for Twitter memes.
Good morning and Happy Monday to everyone who wishes those Gettr, Parler, and Truth Social clowns would just STFU about how they're leaving Twitter and just leave already.

People are also realizing the need for another app that blocks and restricts their thoughts and words in public to deliver. In the past few years, many users have faced issues in completely expressing themselves as Twitter used to delete the post or the whole account at their convenience and sometimes for very stupid reasons. Truth Social is using this problem in their
Truth Social, where even the launch date is a lie.

Firstly, it was announced that the app will get launched on Monday, 22 February but it got launched early on Sunday.

It is not the first time, Trump is launching something under his name. Before Truth Social, Trump introduced “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump”. An application where he used to post short-tweet-like announcements. Not very surprisingly, it failed abruptly.
The Truth Social is another “hit and trial” for Trump to get the attention of the public for the next US election which is going to take place in 2025. This also depicts that someone can also challenge the supremacy of Twitter even today since this “hit and trial” app is getting quite popular. So far none of the newer companies, which include Twitter competitors Gettr and Parler and video site Rumble, have come close to matching the popularity of their mainstream counterparts.
