The launch of the social network caused great enthusiasm on Monday. The mobile app topped the most downloaded free software from Apple’s online store in the United States.
However, a few hours after the launch of Truth Social on the American App Store, many Internet users indicated that they do not yet have access to the social network.
The following message was displayed on the screen of some smartphones:
Due to high demand, we have put you on a waiting list. We love you and for us you are not just a number.
Internet users who pre-ordered the application were unable to complete the registration, receiving an error message during the last step.
On the other hand, the platform was attended by personalities close to Mr. Trump, who had access to a trial version of the application even before its launch.
This is the case of elected Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, familiar with conspiracy theories, who posted footage of her first messages on Truth Social on Sunday.

Other competitors in the conservative arena
According to various press releases, the group has about 1.25 billion US dollars (1.6 billion Canadian dollars) to launch an attack on its competitors in the already very crowded market of popular social networks. The ultraconservative right, like Gettr, was launched in early July by former Donald Trump adviser Jason Miller, but also by Parler and Gab.
In December, TMTG announced that it had entered into a partnership agreement with Canadian video streaming platform Rumble, stating that a beta version had already been launched using their cloud service.
At age 75, Donald Trump leaves doubts about his intention to run again or not for a Republican nomination in the race for the White House.
He is the subject of investigations into the management of his taxes, about the way he would try to stay in power after the defeat, in November 2020. His management of official documents that were to be forwarded to the American National Archives was also examined.
Prior to deleting his Twitter account, the social network was Donald Trump’s favorite platform, which he used to announce the president and formulate attacks on his political opponents. He had almost 89 million subscriber accounts there, which he contacted every day.
