Donald Trump’s new social media venture, Truth Social, appears set to launch in Apple’s App Store on Monday, according to posts from an executive on a test version viewed by Reuters.
In a series of posts late on Friday, a verified account for the network’s chief product officer, listed as Billy B., answered questions on the app from people invited to use it during its test phase.
One user asked him when the app, which has been available this week for beta testers, would be released to the public, according to screenshots viewed by Reuters.
We’re currently set for release in the Apple App store for Monday Feb. 21,” the executive responded.
The launch would restore Trump’s presence on social media more than a year after he was banned from Twitter, Facebook and Alphabet’s YouTube following the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol by his supporters, after he was accused of posting messages inciting violence.
