When former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter in January 2021, he had close to 90 million followers. Instead of permanently disappearing from social media platforms, he built one of his own —Truth Social launches next week, February 21st, Presidents’ Day.
The social media platform, similar to Twitter, is already in beta. The former President shared his first Truth this week and Donald Trump Jr. shared the message on Twitter.
“Time for some Truth!!!” Trump Jr. tweeted with the accompanying photo:

‘TRUTH Social (beta) has dropped and President Trump is active on his own account!’ tweeted Liz Willis, VP of operations at Right Side Broadcasting Network. ‘The world is healing.’
