Trump’s Truth Social Launches at the Top of the App Store, but No One Can Get In

By Amanda Silberling

Donald Trump’s media group released its TRUTH Social iOS app today in the U.S., but a scan of the app’s API using publicly available tools revealed that it already closed itself to registrations (also, the scan showed that its “proprietary account registration microservice” is named “Pepe,” which is also the name of a meme with racist connotations).

Though TRUTH Social sits at the No. 1 spot for free downloads in Apple’s App Store, most users can’t get into the app. When you download TRUTH Social, you’re prompted to enter your email and date of birth (users must be 18+) before waiting for a verification email. But at every step of the process, TechCrunch received error messages. Once we received a verification email, the link yielded more error messages, making it impossible to create an account. Some users have reported being placed on waitlists with more than 100,000 users, while others never received verification emails or couldn’t move past the verification step. TechCrunch reached out to the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) for comment on these sign-up difficulties.

Former President Trump became interested in building his own social media platform after he was removed from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for violating their policies following last year’s attack on the Capitol. In an October press release, the TMTG wrote that its mission is to create “a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the Big Tech companies.”

The announcement of TRUTH Social was also rife with growing pains. The new social network used open-source code from Mastodon, yet claimed the code as its own.

“The terms of service included a worrying passage, claiming that the site is proprietary property and all source code and software are owned or controlled by them or licensed to them,” Mastodon wrote at the time. “Notably, neither the terms nor any other part of the website contained any references to Mastodon, nor any links to the source code, which are present in Mastodon’s user interface by default. Mastodon is free software published under the AGPLv3 license, which requires any over-the-network service using it to make its source code and any modifications to it publicly accessible.”

In December, TRUTH Social finally added Mastodon’s source code to its website on a section labeled “open source.”

“Our goal is to support the open source community no matter what your political beliefs are. That’s why the first place we go to find amazing software is the community and not ‘Big Tech,'” TRUTH Social’s website says.

In December, Congressman Devin G. Nunes (R-CA) departed from the House of Representatives to join TMTG as its CEO (Trump serves as chairman of the company).

In an interview with Fox News this weekend, Nunes said that the full launch of TRUTH Social is a few weeks away — currently, it’s only available for download on iOS.

“Every day we bring on more and more Americans, and we’re getting to you as soon as possible,” Nunes said on Fox News.

 

Editor’s Note:

A new social media platform Truthbook.social, also known as ANR Social, is built by the people for the people, a force for good. Powered by Australian National Review an independent, not-for-profit news media company, built by the people for the people, as well. Truthbook.social not to be confused with Truth.social being launched by Trump soon, is growing fast, no doubt as it’s backed by Global Independent Media who have many readers deserting traditional platforms like Facebook and Instagram from the “censoring” of anyone not adhering to the false Covid narrative being pushed.

It is censor free and privacy-protected, it combines the best of YouTube Features for uploading videos, plus Telegram and Facebook type features for ease of sharing articles or content and to keep in touch with family and friends privately and securely away from the eyes of the Government Agencies.

To combat the censoring, and banning of those who speak the truth, and those who are seeking the truth, Truthbook.social is everything Fake Book isn’t.

Truth coin www.truthcoin.social, Truthbook’s currency, will enable us all to share the truth via Truthbook.social. Truthcoin is not just a Global Payment system, it is Truthbook’s currency like Facebook has Libra, but it will also help fund the growth of Truthbook.social to compete against the large multi-billion dollar competitors.
