Donald Trump’s Truth Social app debuted just before Presidents Day, but some users are struggling to create accounts.
According to CNET, the app launched on Sunday night in Apple’s App Store and some users received an error message after filling in their birthday and providing an email to confirm the account.
“Something went wrong. Please try again,” the message read.
On Twitter, users who were able to create a shared account were placed on a waiting list due to high demand.
“Thank you for joining! Due to overwhelming demand, we’ve placed you on our waitlist,” read the message along with the waitlist number. “We love you, and you’re not just another number for us.”
The former president announced last October that he would launch the social media platform after being banned from Twitter and Facebook over fears his presence on the apps could incite more violence like the 6 January 2021.
“I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon,” Trump said in an earlier statement.
He also said the app would “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”

The app will have functionality similar to Twitter, and people won’t be able to edit their “truths” once posted, said Billy B, chief product officer of Truth Social, according to Reuters.
On February 15, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a screenshot of his father’s first message on the app.
“Get ready! Your favorite president will see you soon!” It said.
