After the Twitter ban on the former president, Truth Social was created as a social media platform encouraging free speech and freedom of ideas. Twitter has had rigid policies, but Trump has defied the policy time and time again using his paid aide Liz Harrington’s account, Yahoo reported. 

After the story made headlines, Trump’s Truth Social account posted a message claiming it had no association with the Twitter account. Previously, another account had appeared on Twitter claiming to be Donald Trump, hailed by users as his official return, but it was swiftly taken down by Twitter. 

The US Securities and Exchange Commission has warned Trump after he filed to be brought back on the platform, that if he is let back in, he would have to partially restrict usage and prioritize Truth Social.

Trump promised to wait six hours before posting a message from Truth Social to other platforms, as long as it doesn’t involve politics. 

Spotted by Huffington Post, the account seems to have been created in April but responses to the profile indicate that its new. The account had almost 2,200 followers already on Monday evening.
