Donald Trump recently announced that his Truth social app would launch on President’s Day. Apple made the product available in the App Store on Sunday night. The launch has been a disaster thus far.

The Truth Social website reported that Truth Social crashed at around 11 PM on Sunday evening. As of 10 AM eastern on February 21, the site is still showing a partial outage for the iOS application. The website appears to be operating as designed.

The status page lists the occurrence as a due to application launch traffic. Right wing media pundits have declared the huge interest a victory for Trump’s new platform. Truth Social is the #1 free app on the App Store today.

“Talking Ben The Dog” has been dethroned by Trump’s latest endeavor. Tons of people have been downloading Truth Social. Apple has promised to keep a close eye on the content after a contentious process to even have Truth Social listed on the store.

Users complained of being unable to create an account on the platform. Several had errors when trying to sign up. Truth Social users are finding that Trump’s new app is having the same problems as many tech products experience on launch day.

Time will tell if Truth Social catches on. The new social media platform by Donald Trump is sure to spark controversy. We will know soon enough if Trump’s supporters really do plan to move on from Twitter en masse.
