Elon Musk Says Donald Trump’s Social Truth Beats Twitter On Apple App Store -By ASC

Truth Social also beat TikTok in terms of downloads on the Apple App Store.

Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, has pointed out that former US President Donald Trump’s social networking app Truth Social is leading Twitter and TikTok in downloads. Musk made the announcement on Twitter, sharing a screenshot from Apple’s App Store.

“Truth Social is beating Twitter & TikTok in the Apple Store,” Mr. Musk wrote. His tweets have been liked by over 280,000 users.

This comes amid speculation that Mr Trump’s Twitter account, which was suspended in the wake of last year’s Capitol riots, will be reinstated now that Mr Musk is in charge.

But the former US president said in a statement that he would not join Twitter, then added that the micro -blogging platform had become “extremely boring”.

Truth Social first appeared in the Apple Store in February 2022. It was launched by Trump’s team opposed to Twitter, with the intent of giving users a platform for “open, free and honest global conversations,” according to its website.

Mr Musk on Monday reached a deal to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion at an offer of $ 54.20 a share, which the millionaire said he would use to promote freedom of speech. In a tweet, he explained that “by freedom of speech, I only mean things that are in line with the law. I oppose censorship that goes beyond the law”.

Musk also hopes that “even my worst critics remain on Twitter” after he acquires a social media platform “because that’s what freedom of speech means”.

Listed on the New York Stock Exchange for less than nine years, Twitter has posted a net loss every year, except for 2018 and 2019 when it made a profit of more than $ 1 billion.

Twitter’s revenue is mostly derived from advertising rather than its user base, which isn’t large enough to cover its finances.

Twitter is scheduled to release its first quarter results on Thursday. Wall Street expects earnings per share of three cents and revenue of $ 1.2 billion.
