HELL YEAH: Trump’s Truth Social Surges To No.1 Spot In Apple’s App Store Rankings

TrendingHELL YEAH: Trump's Truth Social Surges To No.1 Spot In Apple's App Store Rankings

Donald J. Trump’s Truth Social has taken the top spot in the Apple App Store’s rankings. 

As per data from SensorTower, a mobile analytics firm, Truth Social recently saw the most installs among the top free iPhone apps available in the Apple App Store. This allowed the Trump-powered social media platform to beat both Twitter and TikTok in raw downloads. 

Truth Social’s rise was quite incredible. SensorTower Mobile Insights Strategist Stephanie Chan noted that on Sunday, Truth Social was at No. 52 on the Apple App Store while Twitter was at No. 39. She estimated that Truth Social had been downloaded over 1.4 million times since it launched in February 2022. 

There are a number of potential reasons behind Truth Social’s sudden rise. On Friday, Trump Media and Technology Group CEO and former congressman Devin Nunes announced that the long waitlists for the social media platform had been cleared. Nunes also stated that the site has moved to Rumble, a new cloud provider. 

“Yesterday, Truth Social and Rumble took a major stride toward rescuing the internet from the grip of the Big Tech tyrants. Our teams have worked tirelessly to realize this great endeavor. Rumble’s cloud infrastructure is second to none and will be the backbone for the restoration of free speech online for ages to come,” Nunes told the Washington Examiner

Donald Trump also stated that even if Elon Musk were to reinstate his Twitter account, he would be staying on Truth Social. 

“Twitter’s become very boring. They’ve gotten rid of many good voices on Twitter, a lot of their conservative voices,” Trump told Americano Media. This was a sentiment that Trump reiterated recently following Musk’s recent successful acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion.
