On Monday, former President Donald Trump made his return to social media with the launch of “Truth Social.” His new app immediately became overwhelmed by the number of users trying to create accounts, causing many to report receiving error messages.
One attempt to create a Truth Social account Monday morning — after downloading the app and verifying the user’s email address — resulted in the phone number repeatedly receiving an error message.
Other users reported seeing error messages after entering a birthdate or e-mail address to create an account, CNET reported.
Other users reported being placed on a waitlist after signing up.
“Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist,” the message read, CNET reported.
Last week, the former president teased at his return to social media.
“Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social message that was shared by son Donald Trump Jr.
