On January 8, 2021, two days after a mob of Trump supporters attacked the Capitol, Twitter permanently expelled the 45th president from the podium. As for Donald Trump, you may have taken oxygen from him. Trump used his Twitter account to let everyone know what he was thinking and to connect with his followers and haters among ordinary Americans and politicians of both parties.
Trump launched Truth Social last February on the App Store as Google refused to list the app
Needing to find an alternative to Twitter to help him express his views, Trump launched Truth Social last February and seven months later it became the 25th most popular social media app on the App Store. The app, developed by Trump Media & Technology Group (the new Trump company founded last October) has been banned from listing on the Google Play Store due to Google’s policies that prohibit the listing of apps that contain violent content and incite violence.
Trump’s Truth Social app is now available on the Google Play Store
A Google spokesperson said, “Apps may be distributed on Google Play provided they comply with our developer guidelines, including the requirement to actively moderate user-generated content and to remove objectionable posts such as those that incite violence.”
Truth Social can now be downloaded on Android devices from the Google Play Store
Google requires that apps with violent content and abusive behavior have policies to prevent these issues from occurring. Google also wants you to see that these apps have a way to enforce these policies. Initially, the Truth Social did not have the policies required to deal with violent and abusive content, and as a result, it was unable to enforce policies that it did not. But now it appears that Truth Social can meet Google’s requirements for the Play Store listing.
On the Google Play Store, Truth Social wrote: “Truth Social is a great alternative to technology that encourages open, free and honest global conversation without discrimination against political ideology. Join the fastest growing social media platform today and let your voice be heard. Sign up to stay informed with breaking news and people who are They influence you. Join the conversation by sharing your unique opinion by posting the truth, re-truth, photo, news story or video link to connect with your friends, followers and the world.”
Trump has been trying to spread the Truth Social and his Trump Media & Technology Group by using a vehicle known as the Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (SPAC). This company, called Digital World Acquisition Corp. , to an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for allegedly misrepresenting fictitious companies. Following today’s news that Google will allow the inclusion of Truth Social on the Play Store, shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC) rose 99 cents, or 6.2%, after hours, to $16.95. The stock closed regular trading hours at $15.96, down 18 cents, or 1.12%.
