At the time Trump revealed his plans for his new social media venture called TRUTH Social, a full roll-out was planned in the first quarter of 2022 – and it looks like things are right on schedule.
Stock prices for the Trump Media and Technology Group’s Digital World Acquisition Corp – the SPAC behind President Trump’s highly-anticipated new social media platform – skyrocketed by nearly 20% on Thursday after an updated Apple App Store listing showed an expected app launch date of February 21st, 2022 – which happens to be President’s Day.
Back in October, Trump announced his plans to combat Big Tech’s tyranny head-on with the free-speech-based TRUTH Social platform. In just a few short months, he has raised over a billion dollars, announced an initial public offering on the stock exchange, and secured a massive video and technical distribution deal with Rumble Media – which has been the fastest-growing video streaming platform in the US.
Big Tech should be shaking in their jackboots.

Similar to its heavily-censored competitors like Twitter, TRUTH Social allows users to set up a profile, connect with other users, and access the “truth feed” where they can “get the scoop on the latest thoughts and activities from the people, organizations, and news outlets that interest you.”
But, unlike the alternatives, the app does not discriminate on the basis of political ideology.
From the TRUTH Social app description:
“Let your voice be heard. Sign up, join the conversation, and share your unique opinion by posting a TRUTH, Re-TRUTH, photo, news story, or video link to communicate with your friends, customers, and the world.
Stay informed about breaking news while staying directly connected with the people who influence you—don’t be shocked if they take your TRUTH viral!”
Already booming, the anticipation for the new platform only heightened after a date was set for its launch. Case in point – Trump’s Digital World Acquisition Corporation experienced a whopping 19.66 percent jump in just a few hours on Thursday.
As of right now, Truth Social is currently available for pre-order, but the app is set to go live on the U.S. Presidents’ Day holiday, which is exactly 90 days away.

This thing is gonna be Yuuuge.

As for Android users, the app has not appeared yet in the Google Play Store. Updates should be announced soon regarding its availability on other devices.
