(DCWatchdog.com) – With tens of millions of voters in the last election and as many followers and supporters, it may not be a total shock that former President Donald Trump’s new social media platform, Truth Social, jumped to the top of the list of the most downloaded app on the iTunes store when it became available at midnight this morning.
So many people are attempting to sign up that the app has struggled at times to keep up with the demand.
According to CNBC in a recently filed report headlined “Trump’s Truth Social tops downloads on Apple App Store, many users waitlisted“:
“Donald Trump’s new social media venture, Truth Social, launched late on Sunday in Apple’s App Store, potentially marking the former president’s return to social media after he was banned from several platforms last year.
The app was available shortly before midnight ET and was the top free app available on the App Store early Monday. Truth Social was automatically downloaded to Apple devices belonging to users who had pre-ordered the app.
“Many users reported either having trouble registering for an account or were added to a waitlist with a message: ‘Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist.'”
It remains to be seen if Trump’s Truth Social will put a dent in its most popular competitor, Twitter, which permanently banned Trump when he was leaving the White House in 2021.
