It’s not Donald Trump’s moment of truth.
The ex-president hasn’t posted anything on his new social media app, Truth Social, for more than two weeks as the waiting list appears to have grown to more than 1 million users.
Truth Social, which bills itself as a conservative-friendly alternative to Twitter, shot to number one on Apple’s free apps chart when it became available for download in February — days after Trump made his only post on the site, to let fans know “Your favorite President will see you soon.”
But many would-be fortune-tellers who downloaded the app at launch are stuck on a long waiting list that doesn’t seem to have budged.
A Post reporter has been stuck on the app’s waitlist at number 387,392 for more than a week, and screenshots on Twitter show other potential users with waitlist numbers in excess of 1 million.
Meanwhile, Truth Social has fallen to No. 90 on Apple’s free charts since Friday – just below Waze, the traffic helper, and above Starbucks’ rewards app.
Truth Social’s parent company, Trump Media and Technology Group, which is headed by former California Congressman Devin Nunes, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
However, the app sent a message to some users this week, saying that it “constantly welcomes new users from our temporary waitlist.”
“This phased rollout allows us to identify and fix bugs in real time while we engage news users,” added Truth Social. “Rest assured, the entire TRUTH team is working 24/7 to ensure everyone can join us as soon as possible.”
Trump Media and Technology Group is to be formed through a merger with a special purpose entity called Digital World Acquisition Corp. go public.
Despite Truth Social’s apparent hiccups, SPAC shares are up nearly 900% since the merger was announced in October. Digital World Acquisition Corp. was trading at around $98 on Friday – just below an all-time high.
