Former president of the United States of America, Donald Trump has launched a new social media App, ‘Truth Social’.
The Twitter-like application is owned by Trump Media and Technology Group, the media company Trump started after leaving the White House.
The application which is currently available for download on Apple’s AppStore hit No. 1 in the store’s top charts on Monday, CNN reports.
Last week, Reuters had reported that about 500 people had started using an early version of the Truth Social application. However, by Monday morning, users who downloaded the app were invited to register for the service, even though the signup process ended in a waitlist to access the platform that had already grown to more than 150,000.
The App is a social media platform that encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology.
Former Republican congressman, Devin Nunes who quit to become the CEO of Trump’s media company, revealed that the ‘Truth Social’ App will be in full operations by the end of March, 2022, with a larger coverage to all US citizens at any time.
‘Truth Social’ is based on Mastodon, free and open-source software that is released under the AGPLv3 license. AGPLv3 requires any derivative source code to be publicly available.
Investors King gathered that the social App is modeled heavily after popular micro-blogging site, Twitter. It was gathered that users of the application will be able to make posts (“truths”) and share other users’ posts (“re-truths”). The platform will also feature a news feed called a “truth feed”, as well as a notification system.
Recall that Trump’s Twitter handle was, in June 2021, permanently de-listed over concerns of the ‘risk of further incitement of violence’ and Trump’s previous transgressions.
Trump, born on 14th June, 1946 is an American politician, media personality, and businessman who served as the 45th president of the United States from 2017 to 2021.
He became president of his father, Fred Trump’s real estate business in 1971 and renamed it ‘The Trump Organization’. Trump expanded the company’s operations to building and renovating skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Trump and his businesses have been allegedly involved in more than 4,000 state and federal legal actions, including six bankruptcies.
Elon Musk Envisions X as the Future of Your Financial Life
Tech visionary Elon Musk unveiled his vision for X, aiming to transform it into the epicenter of people’s financial worlds by the end of 2024.
Musk’s plan transcends mere payment solutions, targeting nothing short of the complete financial ecosystem, including money and securities. “You won’t need a bank account,” he affirmed.
X, led by CEO Linda Yaccarino, sees this as an ambitious opportunity that could reshape the financial landscape as we know it.
Musk expressed his unwavering commitment to the cause, stating, “It would blow my mind if we don’t have that rolled out by the end of next year.”
This ambition traces back to Musk’s dot-com-era online bank, X.com, which later evolved into PayPal. Musk aims to take a page from his earlier playbook, hoping to outshine PayPal with a more comprehensive approach.
The platform’s offerings are set to include high-yield money market accounts, debit cards, checks, and loan services. Musk’s endgame? An ecosystem that empowers users to send money worldwide instantly and in real-time.
However, this transformation is not without its challenges. Elon Musk must convince users of the necessity of such an all-encompassing platform while gaining their trust with their financial lives.
The vision of X as an “everything app” resonates with the rise of super apps like WeChat in China, which provide users with access to a myriad of services, from shopping to transportation.
As X positions itself to revolutionize the financial industry, Musk’s audacious endeavor promises to change the way we handle money, potentially eliminating the need for traditional banking as we know it.
The world watches with bated breath to see if Musk’s bold vision will become a reality.
WhatsApp Introduces Dual Account Feature, Enabling Users to Sign Into Two Accounts
WhatsApp has introduced a groundbreaking innovation that promises to redefine the user experience.
This new feature allows individuals to simultaneously manage two WhatsApp accounts on a single device, eliminating the need for dual phones.
The eagerly anticipated announcement was made by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, who assured Android users that this feature will soon grace their screens.
Gone are the days of juggling multiple WhatsApp accounts, a task that often required carrying two separate devices. While tech giants like Xiaomi and Oppo had previously introduced app cloning features for multiple WhatsApp instances, WhatsApp’s integrated approach sets a new standard for seamlessness.
This innovation is poised to be a game-changer for users who navigate both personal and professional realms on this ubiquitous messaging platform.
Cumbersome login-and-logout routines and the perpetual concern of messaging from the wrong account will soon be a thing of the past, replaced by a newfound ease of multitasking.
Activating this feature is a straightforward process. Users need only navigate to the ‘Settings’ menu and select ‘Add Account.’ During setup, a second phone with a SIM card or a device supporting eSIM technology is required to unlock the full potential of multi-SIM functionality.
WhatsApp ensures that each account can have its own customized notification and privacy settings, preserving data integrity and personalization.
In addition to the dual account feature, WhatsApp recently introduced passkey support for Android, enhancing security by providing an alternative to SMS-based two-factor authentication.
This latest advancement underscores WhatsApp’s dedication to user convenience, connectivity, and digital identity security, setting the stage for a more organized and efficient way of communication.
