It’s no secret Big Tech and Big Media have jumped in bed with the Democrat Party.
After being silenced and de-platformed while still the sitting President of the United States, Donald Trump decided to launch his own social media platform.
Now the former President is smiling from ear to ear after learning Truth Social is number one.
The world has been abuzz for a couple of weeks as Tesla Founder, Elon Musk and the Twitter Board of Directors went round in very public negotiations.
Musk’s bid to purchase the Big Tech giant was successful.
However, for all those hoping Musk taking Twitter private would mark the return of Donald Trump’s account, don’t get those hopes up too high.
The 45th President of the United States has said he won’t be returning to Twitter, instead, he’s focusing on Truth.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth,” Trump said on Fox News. “He’ll (Elon Musk) make improvements to it (Twitter) and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”
And the real estate mogul has good reason to feel good about the prospects of his endeavor into the social media landscape.
Truth Social is now the number one most downloaded app on the iOS apps store.
Trump’s social platform only launched in February and only to a beta-testing audience.
Waitlists have been long, but Truth Social has now merged with Rumble’s cloud service to become virtually un-cancelable by Big Tech.
Now they can work on onloading Apple users, and in the next month they hope to launch a web app that will allow non-Apple customers on the platform.
Former Congressman Devin Nunes is leading the Truth Social effort for former President Trump.
And Nunes is incredibly pleased with the progress of the platform thus far.
“We are already getting more engagement, not only than Twitter, but also, even Instagram,” Nunes said during an interview with Fox & Friends. “The real competition here is Instagram and Tik Tok and even Facebook. We already do what Twitter does. We have really good video, really good photos . . . we’re trying to take the best of all these and put them into one place.”
Nunes says he’s excited about Musk buying Twitter, but President Trump has no need to rely on any other company.
Meanwhile, former President Trump thinks all the censorship – including his own ousting from the platform – has made Twitter boring.
“It became boring because there was no interaction,” Trump said. “The interaction on Truth has been amazing.”
