Investors in former President Donald Trump’s social media venture’s parent company rejoiced Thursday, the anniversary of the Capitol riot, as shares skyrocketed by 20%.

Trump’s New TMTG ‘TRUTH Social’ App Live For Apple Users

Donald Trump’s new social media venture, Truth Social, has launched on Apple’s App Store, marking the former president’s return to social media after he was banned from several platforms last year.

Apple users were able to download shortly before midnight eastern time and was automatically downloaded to users who had pre-ordered the app.

The app is currently available for download; however, many users attempting to launch an account on the platform were waitlisted, with the queue to join the app reaching over 150,000 as of early Monday.

“Your account has been created successfully!“ a notification reads. “Do to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist. We love you and you’re not just another number to us, But your waitlist number is below.”

The waitlist is intentional, Fox Business reported, as TRUTH Social plans to slowly populate its platform with users over the next ten days. Nunes told Fox Business that he plans for the app to be fully operational by the end of March.

Several people who attempted to download the app received error messages, according to multiple reports.

The app has been available for people invited to use it during its test phase, Reuters previously reported.

Trump was banned from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube after the US Capitol riot in January 2021.

Led by the former Republican US congressman Devin Nunes, Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), the venture behind Truth Social, joins a growing world of technology companies that are championing free speech and hope to draw users who feel their views are suppressed on more established platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook.
